Eileen Jones is a drama writer, originally from Houston, Texas.
A staff writer on FOX’s LETHAL WEAPON and member of the 2016-17 Warner Brothers Writers Workshop, Eileen’s first writerly gig was interning at Texas Monthly magazine, where she ended up tasting and describing tortillas for their food critic.
Since, her career has taken a different—but no less satisfying—path. She assisted Vice President Joe Biden in the final leg of his journeyman Senate career, earned her master’s degree in creative writing with a screenwriting focus from the University of Oxford, and upon moving to Los Angeles, assisted Kathryn Bigelow, prepping Zero Dark Thirty.
As she pursued her television writing career, Eileen made a name for herself as the go-to ghostwriter for many A-list directors, crafting 250+ treatments for short form, feature film, documentary, and television projects. Since 2015, Eileen has taught Script Anatomy’s Televisionary Writers Classes and Draft Intensives. She loves sharing the Script Anatomy tools with new and returning writers!
Eileen is represented by Paradigm and Skyway Entertainment.
