Mike Morucci – Screenwriter

IMDB

I write TV scripts, pilots, screenplays, sketches, jokes and tweets. Lots of tweets.

Check out my writing samples. And information on TV writing programs and other opportunities available to writers.

I maintain a blog for writers called Writer Victories, where I share little wins along the writing journey to keep myself, and hopefully other writers, motivated.

And because I never sleep, I build WordPress web sites for fellow creatives with Chris, a fellow screenwriter, at SmashCut Designs.
