Rowan Wheeler is an Emmy award winning producer and comedy writer.
Originally from London (she still has an accent and everything), Rowan grew up selling weed, being dragged to summer Buddhist camp by her hippy mother and never ever getting to hang out with the Queen. She now avoids rain, excessive amounts of tea and apologizing by residing in Los Angeles.
Rowan’s background is in producing. She served as Co-Executive Producer on a narrative pilot for Robert Zemeckis’ Image Movers and was Executive Producer at Funny Or Die where she oversaw ensemble comedy series “Tales of Titans” starring Jason Ritter. She also produced several sketches for Funny Or Die around talent including Seth Rogen, James Franco, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Hank Azaria and Tony Hale.
Rowan is now a prolific comedy writer and recently sold a pilot to a U.K. production company while she has another pilot in development in the US. She was named a Humanitas New Voices winner in 2018, in 2017, she won the TV category in Final Draft’s Big Break, in 2016 she took home an Emmy for her work on critically acclaimed documentary series Born This Way and in 2015 she won Screencraft’s Pilot Launch.

"I was lucky enough to take a class with Rowan and receive her incredibly insightful and constructive notes. She is extremely knowledgeable about the craft of writing and great at suggesting fixes you didn’t even know you needed!"

"Rowan is a whip-smart televisionary who brings a perfect mix of education and empathy to every class. She has an uncanny ability to recognize the strongest elements of your idea and bring them to the forefront of your project."
— Christian Davies
"Let me begin by saying Rowan is a phenomenal instructor. She is really a student of the game and extremely passionate about the craft. Prior to Rowan I had taken classes where I felt like I didn’t get the proper instruction I needed, however Rowan was very instrumental in me completing a great first draft of my comedy pilot. Rowan is truly a blessing in disguise and I would advise any one who wants to take their project to the next level to take Rowan’s class!"
