I am seeking representation to promote my services as a comedy writer and / or my original TV sitcom for development.
My parents decided to move from India to Canada when I was three years old, apparently thinking it would build my character to grow up cold and shivering for eight months of the year. Needless to say, I stayed inside and watched TV a lot. I fell in love with all genres of television, but was especially drawn to comedy and the idea of making people laugh; being the only brown kid in the neighbourhood meant you had to either be funny or learn to fight, and I don’t seem to react well to pain. Many years in an office only reinforced that notion and eventually led me to focus on a writing career.
I have created an original TV sitcom called THE STRUGGLE.
The pilot won the 2014 Creative World Awards television category. In addition to the original sitcom, I have also written several spec scripts for existing shows, including an episode for MODERN FAMILY that was a semi-finalist in the Scriptalooza TV writing contest. Outside of the scripted genre, I have also created a reality-based game show, which also was a semi-finalist in Scriptalooza.
