Robin Fusco


Robin creates layered crime and medical dramas that take the women you love to hate, put them in fucked-up situations, and make you root for them. She previously coached physicians from around the world on empathy and medical ethics, and she draws on this expertise to bring emotional truth to complex, morally ambiguous narratives. A new media medical series she was hired to write is scheduled for release this year. Robin is a 2022 WIF Writing Circle Mentee and was a NYSCA Screenwriting Fellow, and her scripts have placed in numerous competitions including WeScreenplay, ScreenCraft, and Cinequest. She’s also a commissioned and published playwright whose work has been produced internationally. A proud member of The Dramatists Guild, she was awarded an MFA in screenwriting from Point Park University. Robin tells stories that immerse us in lives unlike our own, and when she’s not writing, you can often find her out in nature hiking and conquering mountains — another way in which she expands her perspective.
