Tiegen Kosiak is an independent producer based in Los Angeles. Previously she was the Director of Development for Cinestar Pictures, the production company owned & operated by Zoe Saldana & her sisters, which had a first look deal with Lionsgate / Televisa & an additional deal to create digital content with Awestruck / AwesomenessTV.

Tiegen began her entertainment career working with Jennifer Levine, the President of Production & Literary Management at Untitled Entertainment. She is a member of Scriptwriters Network, an associate member of the Hollywood Radio & Television Society (HRTS), a Film Independent member / Independent Spirit voter & the co-founder of the Young Hollywood Mafia (YHM).

Bill Taub is a native New Yorker who lives and works in Los Angeles.  A veteran TV, pilot writer and Instructor.  His TV credits include two series honored among the WGA’s 101 Best Written TV Series, Barney Miller and Hill Street Blues — with pilots written for Friday the 13th: The Series, Relic Hunter, NBC, Columbia, Warner Brothers, Paramount, syndication, and he co-wrote the pilot for Dark Shadows.

Bill’s spec pilot, Raffle Guy, won first place with Scriptapalooza. Psycho Babble, his first web series, was done for Strike TV as an outgrowth of the 2008 WGA Strike. He teaches TV Pilot Writing and Creating A Web Series online through UCLA Extension’s Writers’ Program, and wrote the book Automatic Pilot adapted from his workshops (available on Amazon). He has just finished his latest hour drama, a political thriller pilot called UNSWIT, which he co-wrote with Scott Ritter, and will hopefully be set up by the time you read this. He and his wife reside in Los Angeles where he joined her part-time online in the Arbonne health and wellness business.  He is now being forced to learn bridge — which is only slightly less boring than dressage.
