Writer Statement

Paint by the Numbers was not only delightfully fun to write but an opportunity to explore a character I've grown to love. Having a strong, resilient, and resourceful lesbian lead is something you don't see very often in the media. I wanted a show that packed a punch with an elaborate crime scheme that targets the ultra-wealthy but builds a world that still felt relatable to anyone with family drama.
