Bio

Jen Derwingson-Peacock is a Director and Writer working in TV and Film, who absolutely loves genre, action, and genre/comedy. Recent credits include Legacies,  NCIS: New Orleans, Black Summer, and Z Nation. The descendant of Chinese, German, and Dutch immigrants, she grew up in the wilds of Northern California at the foot of Mt. Shasta, mythical home of Big Foot, aliens, the descendants of Atlantis and a panther who turns into Jesus Christ -- so it was probably inevitable that she either join a cult or start telling genre stories. Jen is also a student and teacher of Buddhist meditation. A fellow action director calls her "A Buddhist who likes to blow shit up."   Jen earned a BA in English from Stanford and an MFA in Film Production from USC. She began her career as a theatre director working in Bali, London, and San Francisco. After moving to LA, she made several award winning short films before starting in TV. Jen is known for her inventive world building and for creating grounded, complex characters, sharp dialogue, moody suspense and visceral action and horror.
