Karen Joseph Adcock

TV Writer and Producer

Location icon United States of America

I'm a writer with two last names who's an LA transplant by way of the other LA - Louisiana. I recently graduated with and MFA in Television Writing and Producing from Loyola Marymount University, and I have a BA in Film Studies from Columbia University in the City of New York. I want more than anything to write for TV and eventually run my own show. I love taking the people and experiences around me and turning them into lovable and not so lovable characters and scenarios in my scripts. My writing style drifts toward half hour drama-comedies, or "sad-comedies," as I like to call them. Art imitates life, imitates art, imitation beef... wait, what were we talking about?
