About Laurie

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
If I had to sum up my vision and value it would be with this quote from Ben Franklin. I was schooled in the Ben Franklin way (literally and figuratively, you can see that detail if you read to the end).

Laurie Ashbourne got her start in the industry with Walt Disney Studios, she is a writer-producer, artist, and script doctor with over 25 produced credits to her name and many in various stages of production right now, including a sitcom with Kenan Thompson, an animated feature with the director of MULAN, and an original story she wrote (10-31) was recently purchased and fast-tracked to production with acclaimed producers Eli Roth and Roger Birnbaum. A feature length Christmas comedy she wrote and produced is in post production for release in 2022. She also acts as a creative producer in the documentary space, with renown directors such as David Modigliani (RUNNING WITH BETO, 61 BULLETS, CRAWFORD) and Robert Greenwald (XANADU, STEAL THIS MOVIE) and his Brave New Films banner where she co-produced, SUPPRESSED - the fight to vote (2020), and RACIALLY CHARGED (2021), featuring two-time Oscar winner, Mahershala Ali. She also runs a busy development services company for independent creators which can be found at

As for my schooling by Ben, I grew up in Philadelphia where Ben is almost as popular as cheese steaks but even though I'm a vegetarian, I stuck with him. I was fortunate enough to receive two scholarships to the Charles Morris Price School, which was founded by Ben's Poor Richard Club (The Poor Richard Club is solely dedicated to the scientific study of advertising). I had a dual major, advertising and journalism.

Unique traits: I thrive in a room and not in an obnoxious way and I ask that you respect the DM function.
