Matt Demblowski is a comedy writer and TV producer who got his start in entertainment as a development executive for Stick Figure Productions, in New York, NY. He conceived, developed and produced such reality series as National Geographic's Repossessed! and American Gypsies, among other pilots and documentary films. 

Matt's screenwriting has received honors in a number of national competitions including the Austin Film Festival (Finalist, Digital Series), Final Draft Big Break (Semi-Finalist, Comedy Pilot) and the Creative World Awards (1st Place, Comedy Spec).

In September 2017, he released his original web series, Halftime, a show he created, wrote, directed and produced in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Currently, he works as a Script Coordinator on Superstition at Syfy. In his spare time, he enjoys reading detective novels, binge-watching Game of Thrones and eating pizza.

"I don't give up on projects. One of the things I'm working on now is literally the first screenplay I wrote ten years ago. I'm working on it for my own gratification. I want this script to be something that I'm proud of. And hopefully I've learned something over the years and I'll go back and fix things I didn't know how to fix then... I think there's something instructive about going back to something you once loved and digging into it and figuring out how to make it work."
