About Jennifer

Jen Derwingson-Peacock (co-creator/writer) began her career as an international theatre director working in London and Bali, and running her own theatre company in San Francisco. Jen moved from theatre to film at USC School of Cinematic Arts where her thesis film, Roadside Assistance starring Rashida Jones and Adam Brody, played festivals around the world and earned numerous awards including the Student Emmy for Comedy. Jen sold her first feature script, the thriller/horror The Yellow Wood to Steven J. Cannell, and her first on-screen feature writing credit was And Soon the Darkness, starring Amber Heard and Karl Urban. She began working in television as an Executive Story Editor on Syfy Network’s horror comedy Z Nation, where she was quickly promoted to Supervising Producer, and was also assigned three episodes to direct. Most recently, Jen was writer and Supervising Producer on the Netflix series Black Summer, and directed her fourth television episode on NCIS: New Orleans. Jen loves creating supernatural and sci-fi worlds, and building the intricate, illusory puzzle of a good thriller. Jen primarily writes and directs thrillers, action, adventure, supernatural, SciFi, horror and genre/comedy. She is known for creating grounded, complex characters, sharp dialogue and moody suspense and visceral action and horror.
