Chelsey Lora is a screenwriter who works in TV and film. She was most recently the number 2 and Co-Executive Producer on THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY at Hulu. Her credits include Hulu’s WU-TANG: AN AMERICAN SAGA, Starz’s VIDA, and OWN’s GREENLEAF. She’s currently developing a television show for Chernin and a biopic feature for Warner Brothers. Chelsey’s story is fascinating. First developing an interest in writing while working as a court administrator on the midnight shift in a Florida county jail, she’s also been an amateur boxer, a bouncer at a bar, a legal secretary, a local newspaper reporter, and a preschool teacher.
"Three months into mentorship, I got a staff writer job on TRUE LIES. Chelsey was there both in celebrating my wins as well as walking me through the challenges I faced as a lower level writer in my second writers room. She was always there to answer any questions I had about the industry. Since the program ended, we have become friends and continue to support each other in all our endeavors. I wouldn't have made this helpful connection and friend without Unlock Her Potential. It was a great experience!"
