Kevin Townsley was born a hustler straight from the streets of Detroit. He went from selling candy in the halls of his middle school, to selling weed and psychedelic mushrooms in high school and ultimately put himself through college with his drug enterprise.
After graduating from The University of Arizona (The Harvard of the Southwest) with a double major in Cultural Anthropology/Spanish he traveled and lived in 24 different countries. Then after a few years in Orlando, Florida selling Formica in the business world he moved to Los Angeles.
Kevin has worked on over a dozen television shows and various pilots for some of TV’s finest: Charles Pratt Jr., Charlie Craig, Paul Redford, Alex Graves, Ed Zuckerman and Josh Berman. He then went on to assist Shawn Ryan and Marney Hochman-Nash for Shawn’s production company MIDDKID PRODUCTIONS. This is where he received his “Masters in showrunning” from watching Shawn run multiple shows simultaneously all while developing new shows.
Most recently, Kevin spent a year living on AIRBNB all around Los Angeles. He also just sold a half hour comedy to Pivot Entertainment with Silver Pictures producing, and is currently writing on POP TV‘s Let’s Get Physical.
