TV Writer and Producer

Location icon United States

Karen Joseph Adcock is a comedy writer who grew up in a small town in southwest Louisiana, attended undergrad for film studies at Columbia University in New York City and then grad school for Television Writing and Producing at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She's tri-coastal, and can confirm "the South got something to say" about this East Coast vs West Coast rap conversation... but we'll save that for another day. Karen has written and produced short form content, worked as support staff - Office PA, Showrunner's Assistant, Writer's Assistant and Script Coordinator - on a few shows in both the animated and live action space and worked as a copywriter for a social media start up. She knows she's beyond ready for her first staffing gig. Karen writes drama comedies about broken people doing the best they can and laughing along the way. They say write what you know, right?
