Dani Shank - Writer / Director


Dani Shank is an LA based writer/director who was most recently staffed on both DOOGIE KAMEALOHA, M.D. for Disney+ and the Hulu series MAGGIE. She is also currently developing an original LGBTQ+ ensemble comedy series for 20th TV. Prior to that, she worked as the writers’ assistant on SINGLE PARENTS for ABC, created by Liz Meriwether and J.J. Philbin of NEW GIRL. During that time, she wrote two episodes of the show and got an eyebrow piercing that no one noticed. One of her episodes, “Welcome to Hilltop!”, has a queer + poly element and garnered some great buzz for the show via an article in in Salon Magazine. In addition to the eyebrow piercing no one noticed or cared about, she has three bad tattoos and one that’s just okay.
