Born and raised in Pennsylvania farmland, where the closest movie theater was about an hour away, Lauren Conoscenti became enchanted with the box in the basement... TV.
She grew up watching 1990s hits HERCULES and XENA. Today, Conoscenti writes exciting action/adventure shows in the vein of The CW, Syfy, and Freeform.
With a knack for one-hour genre dramas, Conoscenti has been celebrated as a two-time Austin Film Festival Second Rounder and as a Semi-finalist for the WGAE’s inaugural Made in NY Writers Room initiative. Her original pilot script, GARGOYLE HIGH, was named to the Bitch List, “a list of the entertainment industry’s best liked Bechdel Test passing screenplays.”
Conoscenti holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film & Television from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. After a decade in New York, she switched her base to sunny Los Angeles. There, she’s had the pleasure of working as support staff in the Writers’ Office on shows like FOX’s LETHAL WEAPON, THE CW’s JANE THE VIRGIN, and the upcoming DARE ME for USA/NETFLIX. In any city, Conoscenti’s never too far from a strong cup of coffee. She’d be delighted to share one with you.
