Leila Cohan-Miccio is a Los Angeles based comedy writer. She most recently worked as a co-producer on NBC's Telenovela. Prior to that, she wrote for MTV's Awkward and too-beautiful-for-this-world NBC comedy Next Caller. Her pilot Katie and Becca Grow Up won the Best Sitcom Pilot at the 2012 Austin Film Festival and was in development at ABC Family. She writes a lot of screenplays. Maybe one of them will get made someday!
At the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York, Leila wrote This Is About Smith, a sketch show about Smith College, and Pig: A Restaurant, a solo show about a Brooklyn restaurant opening starring Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Lauren Conlin Adams. Along with Caitlin Bitzegaio, Leila also co-wrote Vag Magazine, a web comedy that went behind the scenes at a hipster third-wave feminist magazine, and The Bachelor: Romance, Roses, and Romance, a one-act play about The Bachelor, which is a totally normal thing to write a one-act play about. She also wrote for UCB house sketch teams High Treason and Stone Cold Fox and video sketch team The Punch. It was a lot, guys.
In her spare time, Leila enjoys favoriting dumb things on Etsy, eating cheese, and group texts about books. She is a wicked Masshole, a proud Smithie, and better than you at Jeopardy. Leila tweets at @leilacohan, Instagrams at @leilacohanmiccio and is truly trying to figure out Snapchat. She's represented by Erik Horine, Cullen Conly and Harley Copen at ICM and Greg Walter at 3 Arts.
Wait, is the Weeknd the ONLY black person nominated for an Oscar or am I missing someone in that nominee luncheon photo?
