Margaux Froley spent two years at boarding school in England. She may never be able to pronounce aluminum correctly again.

A native of Santa Barbara, she has created a multi-pronged resume in the entertainment industry, as both a TV writer, a development executive and an author of YA fiction.

A graduate of film school at the University of Southern California, she became a fellow of the Warner Brothers Writers Workshop, and then a TV staff writer on Privileged (CW), then a Writers Guild Access Project honoree for her drama pilot.

In 2014, she sold a sci-fi pilot, Enhanced, and she was Co-Executive Producer for a digital docu-seriesThis Is Summer (AwesomenessTV), before joining In The Vault (Complex Networks) as Story Editor.

In between all this, she moved to New York, from her native Southern California, to become Director of Development for scripted and non-scripted series at MTV Networks, and she wrote a series of mystery YA books with Soho Teen/Random House.  The first in the series, Escape Theory, was nominated for an Anthony Award for Best Young Adult Mystery. In 2017, she was voted to the 100 Young and Hungry List. 

Margaux is repped by Industry Entertainment.


Before I took my latest spec to market, Margaux was the person I could trust to tell me “if and when” it was ready.  She pushed me to get it there.  Margaux has the pedigree and connections to advise how your script will be received and how to make it work.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Margaux is as an instructor. Her notes and thoughts were very well thought and considerate. I was most impressed, however, with how available she was to her students. She was always quick to respond to an email and ready to chat if necessary. Her class gave me the focus and guidance that I needed to produce one of the best spec teleplays I’ve ever written. I enjoyed Margaux so much that I even paid for a consultation from her for my original pilot outline! I’ve never been better prepared for the fellowships.

We can all find a personal trainer for our bodies, but it’s rare to find someone who has the perspective and is capable and willing to coach you through the pitfalls of writing, especially writing for Hollywood. Margaux is smart, funny and—perhaps even most importantly—patient. At times when I thought I’d throw in the towel on a spec project, Margaux wouldn’t let me give up and would always stay on me to make sure I saw it through to the end.
