Greg Beck’s been writing screenplays for 10 years, finding a niche in crime genre and historical fiction. Greg found success as a finalist of the 2017 Austin Film Festival’s AMC Pilot competition along with 8 other competition placements and wins including Scriptapalooza TV, Fast Track VI Top 50 Screenwriters, Creative World Awards and The 5th Annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship. His pilot script the female led gangster melodrama “Hardy’s Trade” has been pitched to AMC and BRON Studios. He’s currently writing the crime action film “Eve’s Serpents” for producer Joyce San Pedro.

As a writer, Greg’s writing style can be described as “vividly gritty” and pulpy. His cinephile encyclopedic knowledge of films and the history of cinema shows in his work. He particularly has found influence in the cinema of the 1970’s and the current golden age of serialized/cinematic TV. Those films and series include: “The Godfather”, “Mean Streets”, “The French Connection”, “The Deer Hunter”, “The Shield”, “The Sopranos”, “Sons of Anarchy”, “Boardwalk Empire”, “True Detective” and “Peaky Blinders”. As well as the writings of novelists James M. Cain, Dennis Lehane, Mario Puzo, James Ellroy and Dashiell Hammett.
