About Your Host

Maddy Weese started in the industry with a passion for writing but curious to learn every aspect of filmmaking and television. She began as a development intern at a film production company and then landed her first job as a production assistant on the show "CSI." After working in production and then post on the show, she eventually made her way into the writers' room and became the writers' assistant. She also wrote for two CSI related video games on the app store via Ubisoft and GameLoft. In between game writing she began working for a few development companies reading scripts, books and providing coverage and feedback on various projects. She was then hired by Beacon Pictures (Bring It On, Air Force One, Castle -TV) in development to work for the President of the company covering a large slate of film and television projects and is still there today!
