About Carole
  
 
Carole got her start in the entertainment industry acquiring content for several cable networks as a film buyer, eventually leaving her last job as head of programming for The Playboy Channel, and set her sights on being an independent film producer.  She soon co-produced CAPPUCCINO, a micro-budget film noir written and directed by Craig Ross, Jr., which won the IFFM Gordon Parks award.  It was working on this film that steered Carole back in the direction of her first love, writing.
 
Over the next few years, while working in business affairs at Warner Brothers, Disney, MTV and New Line Cinema, Carole honed her craft while working on a couple dozen films.  After being laid off at Jaffe/Braunstein films, where she worked on 9 TV movies and 2 miniseries, she started writing full-time. To date she has written 27 features, 8 pilots and 6 shorts, 9 of which have been optioned.
 
In 2008, her political mockumentary A NEW TOMORROW played the festival circuit and won the audience award at the Seattle Independent Film Festival and can now be streamed on Netflix or purchased on Amazon.  Soon thereafter, she signed with a manager and an entertainment attorney.
 
In the last few years Carole has developed material with several producers: ZOMBIE & JULIET with Mark Ordesky (THE LORD OF THE RINGS), BABY HEISTER with Daniel Ostroff (THE MISSING), and is in discussions with Vince Gerardis (GAME OF THRONES) to write for his new series, THE RIVIERA.  Last year, Carole wrote the biopic FILLMORE, which is currently out to investors, and her horror/comedy THE INVISIBLE GIRL was just optioned.
 
Carole’s work in television includes the drama pilot LEGS, which is in development at Showtime, and the comedy DICK & HONEY, which is under consideration at HBO. She is currently developing the cable/streaming series RIDGEWAY,which is being pitched as BREAKING BAD meets FARGO, which features the medium’s first female anti-hero not tethered to a man.  Producer/director Michael Simon is helping develop the project and is currently pitching production companies and networks/streaming services.
