Talented actress – and now screenwriter – Nicole Duport wanted to be more than a day player on crime shows, and she didn’t want to wait around for her big break. So she decided to do what creative people do best: Create. The result is BURNS – a comedy series about a lovable trainwreck of a writer and her everyday antics in and around the Silver Lake neighborhood of LA.
We talked to Nicole about how BURNS became her creative outlet, even though she had never written her own material before, and how she set about getting it made. This is a two-parter. Please enjoy.
