Writer in Los Angeles, California
Gennefer Gross is a TV comedy writer. She is currently co-founder of Blox Toppling Productions, an independent film and television production company she runs with her husband and writing partner, David Gross. Gennefer has developed scripted TV shows, produced ten original documentaries for A&E, web series for Hulu, Sony's Crackle, and TBS, and an award-winning mobile series.
Gennefer and David have been writing as a team for over a decade across genres with a focus on projects that are high concept with a grounded execution. The duo has more than a dozen original TV pilots, ranging from a dark comedy about a heroin-addicted professional bowler called PINS & NEEDLES, a SEX AND THE CITY spin-off centered on the evolution of Post-It infamous Jack Berger, aptly named BERGER, a re-imagining of Jim Morrison’s origin story entitled MORRISON RISING, and an irreverent female-led comedy, THE THIRD ACT, about an actress navigating the treacherous terrain of Hollywood over 40 while she and her son begin their freshman year together at UCLA.
Their feature projects are equally eclectic with a road trip comedy chronicling an unlikely friendship between a struggling novelist and Matthew McConaughey called FOLLOWING GREENLIGHTS, an action comedy set in Scotland, THE LOCH NESS MOBSTER, a rock biopic of the band Oasis, and an ensemble comedy, POISONING JORDAN (based on the pizza story from THE LAST DANCE).
The Grosses were also Consultants on Season 11 of HBO’s hit series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM.
When Gennefer's not writing, on a crusade to put an end to hacky jokes about how married couples don't have sex, or trying to be funny on Twitter, she can be found eating around LA, crafting cocktails in her kitchen, or on a quest for the world's best burger. She is also a food and drink contributor for Mandatory.
