Stephanie Coggins spent much of her early life writing stories. As an undergrad at the University of Michigan, Stephanie kept her creative juices flowing by contributing pop culture articles to several campus newspapers, and it wasn’t long before she was accepted into USC’s graduate film program at the School of Cinematic Arts. Since then, Stephanie has participated in NBC’s Writers on the Verge program, has had her work featured in NBC’s annual Scene Showcase in Los Angeles and New York, and had a half-hour pilot place in 2016 Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest. Additionally, Stephanie has been selected as a Finalist for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Disney|ABC Writing Program. She is currently the Showrunner’s assistant on BET’s Being Mary Jane. In her free time, Stephanie watches old episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
"With drama, I feel like I do a lot of the same things that I did with comedy, I just leave out the jokes... The objective isn't to make you laugh. The objective is to make you feel something."
