Where Bob DeRosa comes from, nice guys finish first. The Florida-born screenwriter recently finished his first season as a writer on the hit USA show ‘White Collar.’ He previously wrote Lionsgate’s action-comedy ‘Killers,’ starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, and co-wrote director Jieho Lee’s crime-drama ‘The Air I Breathe.’

After graduating from the University of Florida, Bob returned home to Orlando and became a leading figure in the city’s thriving theatre and film community. In addition to co-founding the award-winning comedy troupe THEM, Bob spent three years programming for the Florida Film Festival. After relocating to Los Angeles, Bob wrote two evenings of one-act plays and is a regular contributor to the ongoing late-night series ‘Serial Killers’ at Sacred Fools Theater in Hollywood.

When he’s not writing, Bob studies Kenpo karate and spends time with his lady Jen and their three kids, who look suspiciously like cats.

In today’s interview: the myth of breaking in, personal branding, writers room etiquette, and lots more!
