About Lisa: after a successful career as a movie executive (New Line, Universal, Fox) Lisa joined the second season writing staff of Entourage. After staying there for four amazing years, she moved on to a short-lived NBC show Lipstick Jungle. It was during the WGA strike (that interrupted that show) that she made the decision toto start writing her own TV pilots. In the last few years, she has sold every show that she’s pitched – to Fox21, HBO, MTV and ABC Family. As she continues to pursue her created by” dream, she enjoys teaching other writers how to create their own original pilots and develop the confidence to pitch them. Lisa teaches TV writing in the Professional Program at UCLA, and teaches her successful “Power of the Pitch” workshops at various locations around Los Angeles. She also works one on one with writers in both mediums of television and screenwriting. If you live in West Hollywood and see a tall skinny girl with four crazy dogs and an Urth Cafe coffee cup walking around, that’s probably her. Happy Writing!
