“Well, this is weird.” These are the words that Sana Hussein said when she attended her first screenwriting class. She said these words because it was one of the few times that she truly felt engaged with her coursework. And it also felt like therapy. After graduation, Sana moved to Los Angeles and worked for Endemol Shine North America. It was there that she created her first half-hour comedy TV pilot and pitched it development executives. Her pilot went on to become a finalist in the MPAC & Disney/ABC Television Group TV Comedy Lab. Sana is slowly inching towards her dream of becoming a director and showrunner. She also hopes to start her own television network that connects and unites a global audience through socially and culturally relevant content.
