Sarah Zucker is a writer of one-hour television, comedy shorts and features. Her work often focuses on strong women, campy/queer sensibilities, and the (often hilarious) trials of our present transition from the Analog to the Digital Era.
Her one-hour dramedy pilot The Sun Set is a finalist for the 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. The script is available from The Black List.
She is currently working with partner Patrick Rogers on a range of scripted web and TV projects. Their one-hour dramedy Church is a top-rated pilot on The Black List in 2016. The script follows the drag queens of a historic cabaret in Akron, Ohio as the struggle to keep their bar afloat as they each vie to become the new headlining star.
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.
