Female-forward material. Originality. A new twist on an old tale. BIPOC. Genre mashups like PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES—but it must make sense and work. YA. Half-Hour Dramedies. Projects based on books or True Stories.
A graduate of Michigan State University with a BFA in English, Theatre, and Education, Val McLeroy is currently a Manager/Producer at Epigram Entertainment where she and her producing partner Doug Draizin currently have writers working with Amazon, eOne, NBC, Netflix, and Robert Zemeckis' company. Previously, Val worked as a development and production executive at companies including Atlantic Entertainment (TEEN WOLF) and Green/Epstein Productions (IT). Val has also produced several TV movies, two of which she wrote for Lifetime: HEART OF THE STORM and SPIRIT which has been nominated for a Humanitas award. As a writer and former teacher of English and Drama, Val understands the needs and concerns of writers and loves mentoring emerging talent.
By far the best script feedback I've received. Val was clear about what worked, specific about what didn't, offered practical fixes and most importantly, wasn't afraid to name the elephant in the room - something prior exec's were unable or unwilling to do. But it's the absolute game-changer and I am beyond grateful.
