Available To Work November 21, 2022


Jennifer Kim is a Korean American TV and feature writer, journalist, former media producer, and recovering high school teacher. A daughter of disco-loving immigrants from North and South Korea, Jennifer grew up in Appalachia -- where she and her sister were the only Asians in a hillbilly school. She began her career at PBS and now writes offbeat character-driven stories that blend self-discovery with social themes and, at times, absurdity and magical realism. Her protagonists are resilient outsiders who enjoy disrupting the status quo in lighthearted ways. Grief often is their underlying wound. Her half-hour pilots, the KOREAN AMERICAN WITCHES SOCIETY (YA/family) and THE INCREDIBLE KIMCHI DOKKAEBI (sci-fi, action, workplace comedy) were finalists for the ViacomCBS and Hillman Grad writers programs. KIMCHI won the 2022 ISA Grand Prize for Genre-Busting Sci-Fi & Fantasy. Both pilots are available, and we are looking for producing partners. Please connect if you’re interested in reading them. A graduate of the University of Michigan, Jennifer has an MFA in screenwriting from UCLA and lives in Pasadena. She has contributed to the USA TODAY, LOS ANGELES TIMES, NPR, and as a radio storyteller on KCRW. Jennifer is available for staffing and OWAs. Portfolio: You can also find her on Facebook as an admin for Roadmap’s Cookout group for BIPOC creatives. She is repped by Industry Entertainment.
