Lauren Sadja Otero is a Mexican-Jewish comedy writer who writes about totally light-hearted topics as race, identity and mental health.
After graduating from Stanford University with a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Sociology, Lauren got her start at CAA where she worked as an assistant for two years. Shortly after, she was accepted into the Disney-ABC Writing Program, where she landed her first staffing job on Happy Endings. Since then, Lauren has staffed on several shows, including How To Live With Your Parents For The Rest Of Your Life, Versus, Mr. Student Body President, and Girl Meets World.
A Los Angeles native, she’s the daughter of a federal judge and a special ed teacher who became handicapped. She once ran a food blog for the lactose intolerant. And her first screenwriting class was taught by a teacher who was taught at San Quentin.
Lauren is currently out with a musical comedy with Sacha Baron Cohen’s production company. She is repped by Artist First.
