OVERDUE (my series, & also this blog)

January 18, 2018 3:23 pm Published by Comments Off on OVERDUE (my series, & also this blog)

I started last year taking a step back from this blog to focus on what I moved to this crazy town to do in the first place: Writing scripts for the big screen (and small screen, and screen in your pocket - any screen that will produce my work so my mom can tell her book club her daughter has a JOB!!!) So, I am feeling very happy and very grateful to have ended 2017 with the release of the web series I worked on as Co-Executive Producer, OVERDUE for Awestruck. Hollywood is hard for all sorts of superficial reasons that nonetheless hurt your heart and soul, and it's also hard for the reasons that have (finally finally finally) been in the news this year. I hope real, lasting, impactful change is coming. I think it is. I am excited to see what 2018 has in store, and I am V excited to share this show I worked so hard on with so many fiercely talented people!View Article

Double Standards

November 20, 2017 5:18 pm Published by Comments Off on Double Standards

2017 has been a real bitch, no? The events of this year, policies of this administration and treatment of women in Hollywood (and in this country) (and in the world) have left me depressed, outraged and generally feeling at a loss. So when my fiercely talented friend Laura Bell Bundy decided to actually do something about the current state of affairs and reached out to see if I wanted to help write for a benefit concert she was putting together called DOUBLE STANDARDS to celebrate women and raise money for the organizations protecting, empowering and supporting women (Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Breast Cancer Coalition), I was all in. Laura Bell is a living example of what can be accomplished when women in power help other women, and is an all-around badass boss bitch. So it's no surprise she was able to get this powerhouse group of ladies together. I was fortunate to get to collaborate on her opening monologue, and she generously agreed to let me share our extended, uncut first draft here!View Article

Dogs We Saw This Week Podcast

April 5, 2017 4:39 pm Published by Comments Off on Dogs We Saw This Week Podcast

Tony and I got to be special guests on this week's episode of Anne Lane and Stephanie Ritter's Dogs We Saw This Week podcast, "Playing Hard To Pet." They are two funny ladies who love dogs but do not own dogs, so they get together to discuss and rate the dogs they see each week. Listen to hear about the 5 hours I spent stalking puppies on the Paramount lot, Tony's favorite cats to follow on Instagram and Lucy, Tippi and Maggie being Very Good Dogs while we recorded in our living room. If you want pics (of us and our dogs podcasting, or any dog Anne and Stephanie have seen in real life or on the internet, email them at!) View Article
