LAUREN BURKE grew up on a steady diet of R.L. Stine books, 80′s sci-fi and classic television. When she was little, she wanted to be Supergirl. Now, she’d happily settle for writing Supergirl. She currently works in publishing by day, and writes television pilots, short films and comics with her partner-in-crime, Greg Sorkin, by night. Their pilot, P.I. Jane, was recently named a semi-finalist in the Scriptapalooza TV competition, and they are currently writing their next graphic novel, The World Ends With Us. When she’s not writing, Lauren is busy traveling, and watching copious amounts of Doctor Who.
GREG SORKIN was born and raised on the couch in the north Chicago suburbs. He’s lived in both Chicago and Los Angeles, where he participated in Columbia College Chicago’s Semester in L.A. sitcom writing program. After graduating from Columbia with a B.A. in Television Writing & Producing, he stayed out in L.A. to break into the business… and did so by working on such quality programming as VH1′s Celebrity Rehab Season 2, and DirecTV’s Meatloaf-hosted game show, Rock and a Hard Place. Since moving back to Chicago, he’s continued the tradition on shows like America’s Got Talent (NBC), The X-Factor (Fox), Four Weddings (TLC) and The Glee Project (Oxygen), as well as The Late Live Show at Second City. In between all the reality TV work, he writes TV pilots, comics, webcomics and anything else with Lauren Burke. He uses his Television degree to justify all the TV he watches, both American and British.
