Patricia Frontain began her career in filmmaking as a script supervisor for features films, episodic television and commercials. Most notably, she has been the main script supervisor for NBC's Chicago PD since the show premiered in 2013.
After 26 years in the scripty chair, Patricia moved over into the director’s chair. She made her network directorial debut on March 24, 2023 on Lifetime Network with a movie entitled TWISTED SISTER (Mena Suvari). SURVIVING THE SLEEPOVER premiered on Lifetime on March 23, 2024. And...her third feature entitled TRAPPED IN THE ROCKIES is scheduled to premiere on Lifetime in August 2024.
Before directing television, Patricia was at the helm of many short films. Most notable are LIGHT (Marina Squerciati & Amy Morton).
THE FOLLOWER (Jon Seda & Kara Killmer). UNKNOWING (David Eigenberg, Phil Tyler & Ajani) and RIP (Sylvie Sadarnac & Guy Van Swearingen).
Patricia's series of anti-gun violence Public Service Announcements entitled SHATTERED feature actors from Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, and Chicago Med and have aired nationally.
In 2015, her 14-year old son was caught in gang gunfire and lost his life. To honor her son and help eradicate the senseless loss of life to gun violence, Patricia created a viable non profit entitled Patrick Lives On. With the help of the casts and crews of Chicago PD, Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, the NFP enables Chicagoland youth to attend the after school activity of their choice in hopes of keeping them away from gangs and gun violence. This creative team also produces the above-mentioned, inspirational short films, which are distributed pro bono to counseling and detention centers with a suggested discussion packet.
All of Patricia’s short films have their first screening at the Patrick Lives On Annual Film Showcase hosted by Resolution Digital Studios and Cinespace Film Studios in Chicago. The showcase has become a highly-attended Chicago film industry networking event, as well as a fundraiser for Patrick Lives On.
