- LOS ANGELES
Filmmaker Coke Daniels has joined Bullitt, marking his inaugural representation in the branded content and advertising arena. The director--whose upcoming feature Karen starring Taryn Manning, Cory Hardrict, and Jasmine Burke is available on demand September 14--has written, produced, and directed nine films over the past two decades, including My Baby’s Daddy and Who Made The Potatoe Salad?.
Daniels said it was an honor to come aboard the Bullitt roster. “To be represented by a company founded by iconic filmmakers, The Russo Brothers and Justin Lin, is nothing short of amazing.”
“Coke is a filmmaker who examines human truths with wildly entertaining narratives,” said Bullitt’s Luke Ricci. “That combination, along with his talent in writing and directing, is an incredible asset for brands who want to bring original storytelling into focus.”
In addition to advertising campaigns via Bullitt, Daniels, whose films have been distributed through FOX, Miramax, Lionsgate, BET and others, is currently developing an ever-growing slate of films and television projects both independently and with various networks and studios. In 2019 Daniels wrote, produced, and directed the romantic comedy His, Hers & The Truth, an official selection in the 2019 American Black Film Festival and acquired by BET. Daniels then wrote, produced, and directed the family dramedy Fruits of the Heart, which stars Wendy Raquel Robinson, Dorien Wilson, Lil Mama and Clifton Powell, among others. The film is currently airing on BET.
