Carlos Gutierrez and his writing partner Michael Goldenberg specialize in television comedies that bring both depth and levity to colorful worlds parallel to our own. Their comedy Asians Can't Play Jazz was awarded best comedy pilot in the Creative Screenwriting Unique Voices Competition and a finalist in WeScreenplay's Diverse Voices. It’s currently listed in the top 2% on Coverfly. Together with Creative Screenwriter Productions, they are developing their children's animated series Elysian Ring, which follows a group of kids sent to summer camp on a planet in the midst of a climate disaster, where they must unite and fight to survive. After growing up in a midwest city boasting the highest number of churches per capita, Carlos studied Telecommunications, Music, Spanish, and Italian, worked for a nonprofit in Antigua, Guatemala teaching women’s self defense, and studied political science in Rome. His first job in LA was churning a mud pit in the Santa Clarita desert for an MTV game show, and has since worked for a virtual reality startup and ghost written episodes for Starz's Heels and Hulu's Wu-Tang: An American Saga. He currently works for a television showrunner with an overall deal at HBO. Carlos's ultimate career goal is to bring about normative Filipino representation in TV and film.
