Zach Ayers is a writer—mostly in drama, mostly in television. Zach has worked in both hour and half-hour television, including Freeform’s SIREN, NBC’s STATE OF AFFAIRS and Disney’s A.N.T. FARM.
He’s also developed several projects across town and genres. His latest comedy, Need to Know, is in development with WBTV/CBS. The premise, about a young CIA officer working in a little-regarded Agency department, is based on Zach’s previous career as a CIA training-film writer/producer which is an actual job in the actual US government.
Zach is an alumnus of the ABC/Disney Writing Fellowship, Second City and Ithaca College. Zach was born in Alaska, grew up in Seattle, and now lives on the eastside of LA with his wife and two daughters.
Zach is currently writing for BET’s “AMERICAN SOUL,” and has been a proud instructor at Script Anatomy since the spring of 2017.
