Lauren Morelli is a television writer, screenwriter and producer. Currently, she is Executive Producing and writing a reboot of Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City for Netflix, starring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Page, which will be released in 2019. Previously, Lauren had the honor of working on 5 seasons of Orange Is The New Black, which received 17 Emmy nominations, six Golden Globe nominations and six Writers Guild nominations. In her spare time, Lauren also writes short stories and personal essays that you can find in various corners of the Internet. Before moving to Los Angeles in 2007, Lauren received a BFA in Modern Dance from Marymount Manhattan College, which was about as useful as her father predicted it would be. After graduation, she was a terrible assistant to a plethora of unsuspecting bosses (sorry). Lauren was raised in Pittsburgh by an accountant and an English teacher, but she can neither add nor spell.
