Sarah Zucker is a writer of television, short-form comedy and feature scripts, with a focus on female-driven/queer narratives and camp sensibilities.
Her one-hour dramedy pilot The Sun Set was a finalist for the 2017 + 2016 Women in Film / The Black List Episodic Lab. The pilot centers on rival “Sewing Circles” of closeted women, the free-spirited Sun Set and the prim A-Lines, who clash over sexual jealousies and differences in propriety as they strive for professional advancement in 1930s Hollywood.
Sarah writes and directs comedic shorts for Super Deluxe through her animation studio YoMeryl. In 2017, they created "Shows that Weren't," a series of TV trope fever dreams, and are currently releasing "Panic Attacks," a series about the horrors of modern adulthood.
She holds a BA in Creative Writing for the Media from Northwestern University, and an MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU, where she was the recipient of the Venable Herndon Award for Excellence in Graduate Screenwriting.
