Meredith Post graduated from Brown and came to NYC where her
first play, "Josie" was produced to good reviews. Two more
plays quickly followed. This led to being signed by Rick
Leed. She then applied to the P&G Writer Development Program.
She was accepted and hired to write for "As The World Turns."
She was happy writing 1 to 2 scripts and/or breakdowns 50
weeks a year for talent like Julianne Moore/Marisa Tomei/Jason
Biggs and moved her family to Ct. to take over as headwriter
from her beloved mentor Douglas Marland. (See Wikipedia.)
Sadly, Douglas died tragically before papers could be signed
so, Meredith left CBS to write for "Days Of Our Lives." During
her almost 20 year stint writing for CBS/NBC, she received 6
Emmy noms and a WGA award plus another nom for a WGA award.
When Rick switched to producing, Meredith signed w/Gersh.
She was accepted into a sitcom writing program taught at
NATAS by Carmen Finestra/Matt Williams of WindDancer ("What
Women Want/The Cosby Show"). Meredith then co-created an
original one hr comedy, "Joint Custody" for Nickelodeon/
Halcyon Productions w/award winning producer, Susan Aronson.
She was on the fast track to becoming a major player in the
world of tv when she went to the ER and was misdiagnosed and
mistreated, 'til in a story crazier than anything she ever
wrote, she wound up spending 12 years in/out of hospitals,
fighting for her life and surviving 42 surgeries.
Meredith used the time to watch tv 24/7 and became determined
to write the kind of show she wants to see that no one else
is writing. With compelling stories and complex characters
the audience will love or love to hate and w/her unique POV.
You can see the first 3 webisodes of "The Grass is Always
Greener" by Meredith on Vimeo. She created/wrote/produced
the dramedy, about the opening of the first medical marijuana
dispensary in Ct., for zero budget/with a dedicated cast/crew.
The original 1 hr pilot for "Grass" and a second 1 hr tv
pilot, "The Easy Way", placed in the finals of 2 recent
contests. (Screencraft's Best TV Pilot Launce/Windsong.)
Meredith mixes mystery/comedy with her unique voice -
Hitchcock meets Nora Ephron. Life may not be fair, but you
can write stories where characters get what they deserve
instead of what fate deals them.
