Sean Collins-Smith

Who: Sean Collins-Smith is a biracial, award-winning journalist from Richmond, Virginia. He went on to work at a local news station, covering crime during the midnight shift. It was in this dark, violent world he discovered the inspiration for his first television pilot, End of Life, which was a finalist at the Austin Film Festival in 2017.

What He’s Working on Right Now: “I‘m currently writing a pilot about a small town impacted by back-to-back hurricanes due to the effects of climate change. It’s a hour-long drama focusing on varying characters—a farmer, a sheriff, a teacher, a rising political star, a recent high school grad turned vagrant—and how the storm, its flooding and the aftermath have changed the town forever. Surrounding all this is a murder mystery that may or may not be racially motivated, hitting home the idea of changing climates and chickens coming home to roost—or something.”
