Sharee Silerio is a St. Louis-born, raised and based writer, director and producer focused on telling stories where Black women + girls exist as full human beings on screen and feel seen, heard, loved and affirmed beyond the screen.
Her interest in the film and television industry was during her childhood, where she used the family camcorder to tape scenes of a horror film she wrote; record herself reciting monologues and lip syncing and dancing to music. In college, she was a reporter and anchor for the campus TV news program, and her interests for writing and film merged when she took several film classes and wrote her first screenplay.
She recently completed her fourth short documentary Black Girl, Bleu, a conversation with Black women about the Strong Black Woman myth and how it impacts the mental health challenges they’ve been through, face and have overcome.
Next, she is co-writing a scripted limited series about a Black female hidden figure from the Black beauty industry.
In 2018, her short documentary "The Mountains That Made Me" was selected for the 18th Annual St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase plus invited to screen at the 27th Annual St. Louis International Film Festival as part of the Doc Shorts: Black Voices program.
Other projects she has worked on include "Rhythm + Flow", a Netflix original series starring Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I.; "The Disappearance of Phoenix Coldon", a docuseries on the Oxygen network; season three of Kevin Hart’s television series "Hart of the City" on Comedy Central; a reality TV series on MTV; and "The Color of Medicine: The Story of Homer G. Phillips Hospital", a documentary about the birth and demise of St. Louis’ Black hospital and state-of-the-art medical training program.
Before becoming a director and filmmaker, Sharee worked as a production assistant and helped launch and produce two entertainment television programs for STL TV and executive produced and/or produced a digital series, narrative short, teen talk show, documentary feature and more for other networks and independent creators.
She has also written feature stories, entertainment news and reviews, and wellness pieces for publications such as The St. Louis American, The Root.com, 21Ninety and more.
Sharee has a master’s degree in media communications from Webster University in St. Louis, MO as well as a bachelor’s in communication and film studies certificate from St. Louis University.
