Angela Robinson, Writer, Director, Producer. (Herbie: Fully Loaded, D.E.B.S., the L word, Hung)
Angela received a BA in Theatre from Brown University and went to work in Off-Broadway and Off-off-off Broadway Theatre at Playwrights Horizons, Second Stage and HERE. She ditched the theatre in hopes of making any money at all and attended NYU’s Graduate Film Program — which only succeeded in getting her deeper in debt. Angela moved to L.A. and made the short film called D.E.B.S. through the POWER UP film grant program. The Film premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival and was then financed as a feature film for Sony’s Screen Gems. The feature also premiered at Sundance the following year. She directed HERBIE: FULLY LOADED for Disney, was a Co-Executive Producer on Showtime’s THE L-WORD for 3 years, directed, wrote and produced the web-series, GIRLTRASH!, and is currently a Consulting Producer on HUNG, a new comedy on HBO. Angela is also making a foray into comic books – a graphic novel of GIRLTRASH! will be released by Random House in 2011 and she is also writing a new comic book for D.C. COMICS called THE WEB, due out in September. Click here for more information!
