Raised in an LA suburb by a school teacher and a federal judge, Lauren had fear and darkness instilled in her heart from an early age.

As a Mexican-Jewish comedy writer, Lauren explores totally lighthearted topics like identity, mental health, disability, and the prison-industrial complex. Lauren is a graduate of the Disney-ABC Writing Program and the National Hispanic Media Coalition Television Writing Program. She has staffed on cable and network TV shows, including HAPPY ENDINGS, HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, GIRL MEETS WORLD, and Amazon’s UNDONE.

She recently wrapped on a Marvel animated half-hour starring Patton Oswalt, and is repped by Artists First and UTA.

TESTIMONIALS

It’s not enough to be good in this industry. I’ve found that it’s not even enough to be great. You need to be prolific, consistent and possess an ability to generate work quickly. Script Anatomy will give you the tools to achieve this level of performance. I trust Script Anatomy’s development tools implicitly because I’ve reaped its benefits. I developed my first spec outline in Televisionary Writer’s Workshop. That spec led me to the Finals of every 2014 Television Fellowship Program. It’s not for the faint of heart, but if you have the drive, commitment and passion, Script Anatomy will give you the weapons to succeed.

The Televisionary Workshop is the HGH of TV Writing. Having taken many classes, none have prepared me so thoroughly for a first draft. The Script Anatomy tools helped me delve deep into the theme and tracking of my spec script, allowing me to get to a solid outline in a very short amount of time. The notes from my instructor were thorough and balanced, challenging me to be my best while remaining respectful of my ideas. For the first time in my writing career, the transition from outline to first draft was seamless. I can’t say enough great things.

The system at Script Anatomy for the Televisionary class is streamline, elegant, and rigorous. Each week we were met with assignments that deepened the understanding of our OWN stories.
