Update - May 12

I wanted to give a quick update about what's been going on since I haven't been producing proper episodes. Don't worry, I'm getting back to it soon.

In this episode, I talk a little about working on HBO's VEEP as an intern, recently meeting one of my heroes, Tanya Saracho (creator of Vida on Starz network), writing a new TV pilot during Covid, how I'm navigating trying to promote the new novella, and I give you a peek into what's going on with the novellas, and some writer-insights and things I've been learning over the last few months.

Music for this episode is provided by my Swedish friends, Le Gang. The song is "Come On, Let's Go."

Profile picture for Kayona Ebony Brown

Kayona Ebony Brown

Hailing from our nation’s capital, Kayona Ebony Brown is a multi-hyphenate storyteller who grew up in a home that nurtured her eccentricities and unexpected interests of a girl. Thus, she gives fuel to female-driven vehicles, emphasizing existential undertones, putting unusual or unpredictable women at the wheel.

Using drama to bake fresh narratives, her stories are always flavored with other genres—fantasy, sports, music—which gives her work with both TV and feature scripts a common thread: she makes female leads of color just as acceptably flawed and admirably defective as the straight white men we always find a way to love.

Rejecting the presumed path of a Washingtonian (government work) in favor of art, Kayona is the recipient of multiple awards for her writing and filmmaking, as she continues to build her career independently.
