And just like that, another one comes off the board, as Lily Blau marks our 6th writer signed, as she inks with Bruce Miller at Washington Square Arts and Olivia Blaustein at CAA. Blau, who earned a Top 10 spot in our 2014 Launch Pad Pilots Competition just last week, was the writer behind the incredibly original, and incredibly addicting pilot SIDE BY SIDE. The story follows conjoined twins Bette & Evie Grand on their journey to escape the 1930s carnival they are living in, and flee to New York City in the pursuit of love and happiness. While the idea of a period series focused on conjoined twins may seem difficult at first, it’s Blau’s brilliant writing, and compelling characters that will leave you desperate for this show to make it to air. And I suppose you could just take my word for it… or that of her new reps!
Blau, who holds an BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of Arts, original hails from the Boston area, and currently lives in LA. She is a screenwriter, journalist and playwright.
