Quinta
Brunson

Brunson started her career making several viral comedy sketches, then began producing for BuzzFeed Video and used that experience to enter the business of television. Her series “Quinta vs. Everything” ran on Facebook Watch for five episodes before she joined the first-season cast of HBO’s “A Black Lady Sketch Show.” After working on two pilots that didn’t make it to air, including one with Larry Wilmore and Jermaine Fowler, her first bona fide hit was ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” which nabbed her an Emmy for writing (she is also the show’s star). The single-camera comedy series debuted in December 2021 to overwhelmingly positive reviews and ratings that remained strong when its second season premiered in September. Up next, she guests in Starz’s “Party Down” reboot after playing Oprah in the Roku biopic “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.”
