Joey Day Hargrove is a comedy writer who fell into working with teenagers for her career and is often disturbed by how lost they all seem, especially the girls. So she tends to write quirky stories about lonely (often young) women finding belonging in the least likely of places through uplifting, often irreverent, journeys of self-discovery. Growing up in Oklahoma, Joey never quite fit in. So after graduating from the University of Oklahoma, she moved to L.A. searching for her own place to belong. However, Joey’s current job working at a church, running after-school programs and summer camps, proves that she didn’t entirely abandon her Bible belt roots. Joey‘s scripts have won several contests including the Austin Film Festival, WAN (Writers Assistant Network) Fellowship and the Writer’s Lab. She has placed as a finalist in Big Break and Page and a semifinalist in Nicholl (top 50). Her script HIGHWAY TO HECK is currently optioned and has an A-list actor attached to star and produce. Joey believes television and movies play an important role in shaping our culture, which is such a momentous responsibility – especially now when the world feels so broken. She also strongly believes that we need laughter more than ever. She loves quirky stories with heart. When not writing, she enjoys indulging in her online shopping addiction, hiking the longest hikes she can persuade her friends to do, and spending time with her husband, teen stepson and ridiculously poorly-behaved dogs.
