A graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, I began my career as a development executive at Nickelodeon, working on the development and production of animated television series, pilots and features, including the cult hit “Invader Zim.” I crossed over to prime-time television working at CBS and ABC in drama development and programming, and freelanced as a creative consultant for a number of production companies. I am currently a Creative Consultant at Andrea Simon Entertainment, a boutique literary management and production company representing writers and directors, where I was previously the Director of Development. I work with our clients on developing their passion projects, and I shepherd the company’s slate of projects set up at studios and networks. I have been successful not only in building the careers of our writers, but also setting up projects at Sony, 20th Television, EOne, Starz, Amazon, OddLot Entertainment, Corus, and others. I enjoy having a close collaboration with writers in refining scripts, expanding their range of material, and finding the best home for each project. I was born in Budapest, Hungary, and have traveled throughout Europe. I have a global outlook and a particular interest and expertise in international co-productions. When I'm not reading scripts, I attend science-related events with my two sons or immerse myself in non-fiction history books.
I offer script and pitch consulting services at annahenryconsulting.com.
