Would you be brave enough to live it?” Poehler also created and starred in NBC’s Welcome to Sweden, a series based on Poehler’s own experiences as a former intellectual property lawyer from the United States who moved with his girlfriend to her native country of Sweden. He lives in Stockholm with his wife and their three children.
John Scott Shepherd
In 2001, while a married ad guy with three children in Kansas City, MO, John Scott Shepherd’s debut novel Henry’s List of Wrongs sold to New Line Cinema in a seven-figure deal. Shepherd was named a Publisher’s Weekly Best New Writer, and the book earned sterling reviews. Over the next several years, he was one of the busiest original feature writers in Hollywood, setting up his second novel and seven other spec sales. Two movies were produced: Joe Somebody, starring Tim Allen, and Life or Something Like It, starring Angelina Jolie.
In 2004, Shepherd’s limited summer series The Days aired on ABC to excellent reviews. Shepherd wrote every episode, ran the series, and directed the finale.
The experience solidified Shepherd’s desire to “author” original television programming. Over the past several years, he’s become one of television’s most prolific show creators, developing projects at six different broadcast and cable networks. His premium cable spec Save Me was one of the buzzier scripts of 2012, sold in competitive bid to Showtime, and ended up on NBC in 2013 starring Anne Heche. That same year, he was named one of Variety’s TV Scribes to Watch.
Shepherd created and executive produced DirecTV’s You Me Her, writing the entire first season, 10 episodes, and 300-plus pages in 10 uninterrupted weeks with only a Writer’s Assistant. With the support of the studio and network, his experience in “immersive” fiction writing prepared him to approach the series much like a ten chapter novel.
This year, Priscilla can be seen starring as Izzy Silva in the highly anticipated, AT&T AUDIENCE Network series You Me Her, which had its world premiere at SXSW. You Me Her infuses the grounded and relatable sensibilities of an indie rom-com with a distinctive twist. What begins as an impulsive “date” between suburban husband Jack [Greg Poehler] and neophyte escort Izzy [Faia] spins into a whirlwind three-way affair including Jack’s wife Emma [Rachel Blanchard], who’s been keeping secrets of her own.
Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Priscilla loved entertaining audiences from a young age and was signed by a talent agent at eight years old. She was active in her local acting scene until she moved to Vancouver in her early 20’s to become an actress. She landed a handful of guest star roles on series including True Justice, The Eleventh Victim, Psych, and Seed before joining the cast of Rookie Blue in 2013.
Priscilla was named one of “Canada’s Shining Stars” in Real Style magazine and was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for her work on the show. Priscilla appeared as Chloe Price for three seasons, quickly becoming a fan favorite.
On the charity front she has worked with UNICEF’s Charity Challenge, where she trekked through the lost city of Machu Picchu, Peru, with the cast of Rookie Blue to raise money for the most vulnerable children in the world.
