Development Coordinator

Legendary Television


Tennessee Martin is a Southern screenwriter from a big family (1 of 10 siblings in fact) who studied Digital Film & Visual Art at Stephens College, the second oldest women's college in the nation. She has worked on hit shows such as Lucifer on FOX, Training Day for CBS, and Family Crimes for Starz. Previously, Tennessee worked at Starz as the Coordinator in Original Programming where she spearheaded the creation of the “Starz -- Beyond Gender Casting Database” giving visibility to Trans and Non-Binary actors in the industry and Coordinator for the Head of Operations at Apple TV+. Now, she is the Coordinator for Carmi Zlotnik, President of Television, at Legendary TV. She co-founded the LadyParts Collective, an all-female theater company, and was selected to participate in the Inc Program writers incubator for women in 2020. She was also a finalist in the Athena Film Festival Virtual Writers Lab. Her first macabre short film HANGRY directed by Bola Ogun won Best Horror at Toronto International Women Film Festival and Best LGBTQ in the Sydney Indie Shorts Fest, but not one to be pinned down to a genre, she also has a Christmas feature full of heart and fabulous drag queens ready to be produced. Through her work she hopes to inspire women and queer people to speak up and push back. She enjoys painting, restoring her motorcycle, training in Jiu Jitsu and telling punny “dad” jokes - though her only child is a rescue pup named Rio De Nalli-Martin.
