How did it all begin for the girl from Jersey? Well, Pammy grew up believing that her mom was Laverne DeFazio of Laverne & Shirley fame. Turns out her mom never lived in Milwaukee, worked at a brewery...or is fictional. But that blurred line between fantasy and reality set Pammy on a career path to television.
After majoring in Film Production at Boston University, Pammy prepared for life in Tinsel Town. She made it as far west as New York City, where she got a job at the animation company Cartoon Pizza, Inc. There, she not only learned the animation process but got her break as an animation script writer for Disney's Stanley. Since then, she's written for super fun curriculum-based shows Disney's JoJo's Circus, Pinky Dinky Doo, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, Super Why!, Martha Speaks, and development projects for several animation companies. She also adapted the Sesame Street storybook We're Amazing 1,2,3! into a short animation for the Workshop's autism initiative.
Before landing her current job as Head Writer for Sesame Street English's 2.0's interactive English Language Learning program, Pammy was one of two staff writers on Super Wings!, a new international animated preschool show co-produced by FunnyFlux Entertainment in South Korea, QianQi Animation in China, and Little Airplane Productions, in New York City. The show combines high-flying adventure, cultural diversity, and preschool funny. She wrote 25 out of 52 11-minute episodes and pitched numerous story ideas that were developed into scripts. Additionally, she directed several voiceover sessions with the actors.
Pammy's put her sketch comedy skills to work, penning short interstitials and bumpers for the PBS Kids Programming Block, promos for The Electric Company and Martha Speaks, and segments for Sesame Street English's DVD series.
Additionally, Pammy uses her storytelling skills to write websites, bios, EPKs one-sheets, press releases and marketing materials for artists in the music industry. It's not kids stuff. It's rock'n'roll. \m/
When she's not writing for television, Pammy's watching it. From oldies like Laverne & Shirley, In Living Color, The Brady Bunch, The All New Mickey Mouse Club, You Can't Do That on Television, NewsRadio, to current favorites Workaholics, Superstore, Switched at Birth, The Fosters, and The Goldbergs.
