Anthony Sclafani, Jr.
Anthony discovered the craft of screenwriting from a coworker while working at HBO Studio Productions in NYC. Going off the recommendation of his screenwriting professor at NYU’s Continuing Education program, he moved to LA where he earned his MFA in Screenwriting from the AFI Conservatory and became a Disney Feature Fellowship recipient for his feature screenplay, PRICELESS. The fellowship award helped him land his first agent and manger.
Soon after, Anthony wrote and directed an award-winning, independent, comedy, pilot, ROOMIES. He credits its success to when he had the privilege to shadow-direct James Burrows on an episode of WILL AND GRACE .
Anthony has returned to his hometown where he continues to write on spec and hone his craft while he raises his two sons.
