Scott Sanford Tobis is a screenwriter, podcast contributor, videogame writer and LA Weekly nominated playwright (an award he proudly lost to the late Ray Bradbury). In addition to writing for film and television (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, ONCE IN A LIFETIME, Disney’s THE REPLACEMENTS, THE ROAST OF PAUL HOGAN, and more), he crafts articles for a number of magazines, co-wrote The Desperate Housewives Cookbook, and is currently working on a vaguely-autobiographical (a term he just invented) TV series, entitled UNMOORED. He is endlessly fascinated by the human condition and remains cautiously optimistic in a world that doesn't exactly engender optimism at the moment. That said, he is fully optimistic that he can be reached via the contact information listed above. Legal representation: David E. Harris
