I recently directed, developed and executive produced a 24-minute independent animation pilot called Klutz Muttz. I have written 2 pilots, Please, Kill Me and Debatably, that would make brilliant animated shows. After a decade of working in social media and television productions, I am finally focusing on my original passion, animation.

WRITER, DIRECTOR, PRODUCER
I’m Tess, an unabashed tv geek, but not your average tv geek. I used to skateboard, and I love punk music. I’d say I’m a punk tv geek. A sardonic punk tv geek. My dream has always been to tell the stories and make the live-action tv shows that are in my imagination. Stories about characters I never saw on tv or in movies. Irreverent stories about a skinny iconoclastic lesbian from Ohio who finds herself in the craziest situations imaginable. Or stories about a group of misfit debaters in middle school just trying to figure out how to win an argument without killing each other.
Therefore, I’m applying for the Nickelodeon Content Accelerator program. I love television. I recently directed, developed and executive produced an independently funded adult humor animated pilot called Klutz Muttz. I’ve been a tv connoisseur my whole life, grew up going to comic cons and watching everything from The Adventures of Pete and Pete to Freaks and Geeks endlessly. I want to create my own live-action shows that some other misfit, sarcastic, punk LGBTQIA+ kid will watch and identify with, while also laughing their tail off.
