Lauren Levine, Class of 1981, is a film and TV writer/producer, currently living in LA. She is best known for the BAFTA nominated film Bridge to Terabithia.
Lauren’s career began working at the Max Headroom Show, on then brand new Channel 4. From there she joined the team launching MTV across Europe. In fact Lauren’s career began much earlier, in the newly built Junior School, where she read a book that planted a seed. She moved to New York in 1992 to run MTV’s studio production, it was a time of grunge, hip-hop and Oasis. Music had always been a love, but movies were an obsession. Lauren found her way back to the book she’d never forgotten and turned it into her first feature film, I am David. 14 movies later, Lauren was ready to take on her lifelong ambition to write. Over the last few years, while consulting with the Imaginarium, working alongside the brilliant Andy Serkis, she began her next act. As this goes to press she is in negotiations to write and produce her first original series, back in the U.K.
Dramatic storytelling has always been a driving passion for Lauren, inspired by her teachers Miss Brabin, Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Freer.
