Biography

R.B. Ripley is an award-winning drama writer. He is currently part of the 2021-2022 Warner Media Access Writing Program. His one-hour pilot Sugar Land has been optioned and he recently completed a thriller about a controversial congressional candidate who is taken hostage on election day. He is currently adapting the novel Good Morning, Please!, a dramedy about an unorthodox junior high teacher battling an unscrupulous principal. He has also had a made for-television movie produced. Ripley’s pilots have twice won the ISA Table Read My Screenplay grand prize, won the Script Pipeline’s First Look Contest and Finish Line Script Competition, and been finalists in the Page International Drama Pilot. In 2020 he was named as one of ISA’s two Fast Track Fellows. After growing up in Pittsburgh as the queer band nerd in a huge, sports-rabid family, Ripley set off on a sexy, hard-rocking career as a professional tuba player – which he left behind to return to his true passion, writing. He’s now known for a mature and unique voice whose stories dive into the uncomfortable truths of complex characters and families - blood and chosen - with panache, humor, and empathy. When not writing, he enjoys baking, traveling, and cheering on the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team (which is proof of his limitless optimism). A graduate of Carnegie Mellon’s School of Drama, Ripley is repped by Bob Sobhani at Authentic Talent & Literary Management. He now lives in Los Angeles with his amazing husband of twenty years and their pooch.
