About the Author
Keith Giglio grew up in New York City in a family that felt like the cast of a Woody Allen movie starring Robert Deniro. His love of film comedy began at an early age. After graduating New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Graduate School of Film and Television, Keith moved to Los Angeles because he didn’t want to miss the riots. He began writing with his wife, Juliet, and they sold their first four scripts, thus forcing them to work together. He is a member of the Writers Guild of America and has had 6½ movies produced and many more optioned. In addition to writing and producing, Keith teaches screenwriting at Syracuse University.
