James Cohen began his career in New York as the assistant film editor on features by Sam Mendes, Alan Parker, and James Ivory. Since then, he’s written a number of TV pilots and feature screenplays, the latest of which is slated to be read by his mother at some point in the distant future. His 33-minute fictional audio comedy, THE LACEY STUDY was an official selection of the Third Coast International Audio Festival. It premiered at WNYC’s The Greene Space in 2009 and aired on NPR shortly thereafter. Most recently, James wrote a TV spot directed by Eastbound & Down creator Jody Hill, and penned a wedding toast that was declared “ill considered” by the New York Post. James graduated in literature and film from Vanderbilt University. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

James will be working on his script. THANKS FOR NOTHING:
