The gay son of a former Catholic priest (relax, the Pope was cool with it), Christopher Isenegger writes bitchy morality plays: stories with a stylish sense of humor filtered through a mature, political lens.
He grew up in Oklahoma, where he somehow convinced a bunch of straight kids to quit playing tag at recess to instead reenact scenes from Greek Mythology...yet still managed to stay in the closet until he turned thirty.
After interning at SNL and graduating from NYU Film, he moved to Los Angeles where he enjoys a career “below the line” in the art department.
His screenplays have been recognized as: an Austin Film Festival semifinalist; a 9/10 on The Blacklist; #1 on Coverfly’s Red List; finalist at Roadmap, Stage32 and Fresh Voices; winner of WeScreenplay’s Diverse Voices competition; and the grand prize winner of the Cynosure Entertainment Awards.
He is repped by Jason Bellitto at CITIZEN SKULL Management.
