Allison Begalman graduated from USC's Writing for Screen and Television program. The concentrated female energy from her single-mom Jersey household turned her into a super feminist, leading her to create USC's first Feminist Media Festival. Allison’s feature script, B1, made Tracking Board/ Launch Pad’s 2017 Hit List and was the Runner Up for 2018 Script Pipeline Competition. Her comedy digital series, FIRST LADY PROBLEMS, is currently streaming on Revry. Previously, Allison assisted Sam Catlin on PREACHER. She also worked for Sue Naegle and Patrick Chu  at Annapurna Pictures. Most recently, she worked on the series MONSTERLAND, produced by Hulu and Annapurna Television. Outside of writing, Allison organizes socially/politically within Hollywood. Along with being the CEO of Young Entertainment Activists, Allison founded QXX, a queer-female industry sorority, and is the alumni coordinator for USC's Feminist Media Festival. She also owns too many pairs of Frida Kahlo socks and invites anyone who has read this entire bio to take them off her hands.
