Lynelle White

  • Discipline:Writer
  • Program Year:Episodic Lab 2017


Originally from Freeport, New York, Lynelle White was that weird girl who brought an Empire Strikes Back lunch box to school back when it wasn’t exactly cool for a girl to be into that sort of stuff. Before pursuing a career as a television writer, she was an active duty pilot in the United States Air Force and earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science from the U.S. Air Force Academy. She was previously a staff writer on the Lifetime television drama Army Wives and, more recently, on the SyFy network’s hit Z Nation. White earned her Master of Fine Arts in Screenwriting from the University of California, Los Angeles in June 2017. Her latest directorial effort, An Uber Tale, is currently screening at festivals.
