Monique Sorgen


Comedy writer director


Available To Work


Monique Sorgen is a French-American writer-director who uses comedy to upend the cultural expectations of a woman's place in society. Raised in an idealistic hippie house, then disillusioned by the realities of the world, her voice is joyfully cynical, and her projects are fun but thought provoking. She is a fellow in the Sony Directors’ Program, BlackMagic Collective, and Alliance of Women Directors’ Directing the Actor Lab. She has written & directed multiple award-winning comedy films, including “Sorry Not Sorry”, “Rock A Bye Baby”, and “Lying is Complicated”, award-winning drama, “Random Check”, and award-winning sitcom “Codependent Socks!” about her family, but starring sock puppets. She’s also directed branded reality series, other narrative shorts, and music videos that were acquired by the Disney Channel. She began her career as a director’s assistant on network television shows including “Star Trek” and “In the House” (with LL Cool J). Since then, she has been a shadowing director in television with Lesli Linka Glatter, Pamela Fryman (“How I Met Your Mother”), Mary Lou Belli (“The Mrs. Pat Show” & “S.W.A.T.”), and Michael Spiller (“Mixed-ish”). As a screenwriter, she has developed with Imagine, DiNovi, USA/UCP, Morgan Freeman’s Revelations, and David Oyelowo’s Yoruba Saxon, among many others, and works in TV. In her free time, she host the WGAw’s podcast “3rd & Fairfax,” and creates political messaging for The Writers Brigade.
