Jenji
Kohan

Writer / Producer

Kohan has made a name for herself as a top TV creator with shows about strong but flawed women tackling extreme life challenges, from the death of a husband in Showtime’s “Weeds” to incarceration in Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” which wrapped its run with a seven-season tally of 20 Emmy nominations. The daughter of longtime TV comedy writer Buz Kohan, she established herself with Emmy-winning work as a writer on “Tracey Takes On…” Although her Renaissance Faire dramedy “American Princess” was canceled in August after a single season on Lifetime, her Netflix women’s wrestling series “GLOW” had a strong third season with five Emmy nominations, and now there’s a new series ahead from the streamer — the intriguingly titled “Slutty Teenage Bounty Hunters.”
