Writer Biography - Grace Albers Smith

I grew up in Jefferson City, the capital of Missouri. I'm the youngest of three kids from a very Catholic family, and I went to Catholic school for 13 years. My brother is an engineer and my sister is a teacher, so as the rural kid who decided to move LA and try to make it in Hollywood, I'm definitely the weird one.

Writer Statement

Because I grew up in the capital, both of my parents and most of the adults I knew growing up work in government. Because of that, I've always been interested in the intrigue of local government. This show follows the story of a town run by corrupt leaders, and the murder in the pilot is only the beginning. Lu is a flawed, funny, and arrogant little girl, exactly the kind of girl I'm interested in writing.
