About Chris

Repped By: Matt Prater, Citizen Skull Management

Chris Pittas writes the dark-edgy-funny: shows and movies that make you laugh harder than you should at a particularly awful moment and make you doubt your own moral compass.

Chris’ thriller feature SCORPIONS was recently optioned by Citizen Skull Productions, is top 1% on Coverfly's Red List, Big Break's Top 10, Second Rounder in Austin Film Festival 2021 and earned him a spot on ISA's Development Slate.

His drama pilot, HARDCORE '86 earned him a place among the Top 50 Screenwriters in ISA's Fast-Track Competition. His horror-comedy 1 hour pilot, CITY OF SOULS is one of Coverfly's Top 20 scripts in its Genre/Format, made Top 100 in Launch Pad's Pilot Competition, and was a Semifinalist in ScreenCraft's Screenwriting Fellowship.

Also a film-maker, Chris wrote, produced and directed an award-winning horror short, ART KILLS, in March 2020 (finishing post-production entirely during Covid lockdown).

His award-winning writing and short film got the attention of Vertigo Entertainment, leading to a "first look" agreement with Vertigo.
