More about Averie Joy Maikalima Omakua Huffine

Averie started her career in television as an NBC Page, learning the network and studio ropes while giving tours and working on THE TONIGHT SHOW. From there, she went to BermanBraun and worked for Head of Television Gene Stein during multiple pilot seasons. After BermanBraun, she worked for renowned producer, Sara Colleton. Under Sara’s deal with Universal Television, Averie worked on two Bryan Fuller projects: MOCKINGBIRD LANE and HANNIBAL, as well as the last season of DEXTER. She also worked for Nicky Weinstock at Invention Films under his Lionsgate deal.

In 2015, she joined Amy Pascal's Pascal Pictures. At PPI, Averie was tasked with creating an entire television department and started with BENEATH A SCARLET SKY – the #1 Most Read and #2 Most Bought Book on Amazon in 2016 – and attached Tom Holland to play the lead. In 2018, she went over to BOOM! Studios, where she ran the television department as VP and set up over 20 projects based on IP. She was instrumental in selling and setting up BOOM!’s first ever television series at Disney+, JUST BEYOND, based on the RL Stine graphic novel of the same name. She also helped develop MECH CADET at Netflix, which is slated for a 2023 debut, and sold JOYRIDE to FX with Sera Gamble & John McNamara attached to showrun and David Reed writing.

After BOOM!, she was hired to run Mandy Moore’s production company: Roll With The Punches. She is currently a producing partner and Head of Development. She is an Executive Producer on TWIN FLAMES at Hulu, based on the Wondery podcast of the same name. Roll With The Punches also won MY MOM HAS NO FRIENDS, an article by Monica Corcoran-Harel, in a six way bidding war. Averie is Native Hawaiian and passionate about telling Kānaka Maoli stories - to that end, she helped start PEAK (Pasifika Entertainment Advancement Komiti) to help uplift Pasifika creators. Additionally, as someone with chronic illness, she is an active member of the Arthritis Foundation and has raised over $30,000 for autoimmune research. She does archery on the weekends.

How it Works

Private Month Mentorship

Each month mentorship kicks off with a preliminary 15-min. call to set expectations and lay out strategy for the month. Writer will have email access to the executive plus 4x one-hour consultations with the exec. Exec will read up to 4 scripts in one month (different drafts of the same script or 4 different scripts) and conduct 4x one-hour story notes calls. Calls can also include feedback on your pitch, branding, or career strategy.

If you pay with the deposit/payment plan, your second half will be due the 2nd week of the Mentorship. If you need a different type of payment plan, email dorian@roadmapwriters.com. 

**Please note feature screenplays are limited to 120 pages maximum. Please contact terra@roadmapwriters.com for pricing on a Month Mentorship on screenplays exceeding 120 pages.

What To Expect

After registering, you will receive an automatic Order Confirmation email. Then Roadmap's Director of Consultations, Terra Joy, will get your mentor looped in with you! If you do not hear from Terra or the exec within 3 days of registering, feel free to email terra@roadmapwriters.com for an update.
