Andrea Shawcross
screenwriter & maker of film stuffs


ANDREA SHAWCROSS specializes in whip-smart one hour YA drama and mysteries, and sold five features in the last 24 months (yes, pretty much since Covid).


Originally from the ice cold winter town of Winnipeg, Canada (sorry, not sorry), Andrea gave up the prairie life and now splits her time between Vancouver, Canada and Venice, CA. 


Andrea co-wrote LOVE ON HARBOR ISLAND that premiered on the Hallmark Channel and A VINEYARD ROMANCE for REEL ONE that shot last summer. At the same time, Andrea busted out her inner surrogate to write MATERNAL DESIRE, a thriller for Lifetime produced by IMOTO Productions. This summer, Andrea is writing two more thrillers for Lifetime via Johnson Production Group.   

Before all this big time movie writing, Andrea wrote and co-created YOUNG & RECKLESS the webserie,s officially selected to screen at the Austin Film Festival received distribution on Air Canada. 

Andrea was writer and story editor on the series FUTURE PROOF (FNX), and last month, her YA drama pilot FRENCH CLUB made it to Blacklist's Top List.

And in case you're still reading this, Andrea wrote and directed a number of short films including MY EX-GIRLFRIEND GOOGLE (shot by MASTER OF NONE cinematographer Mark Schwartzbard) that was published on, a website whose aim is to shine a spotlight on funny women, co-founded by Elizabeth Banks. Andrea also directed the soon-to-be-released short film RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, shot by award-winning cinematographer of THE STAND (2020) David Stockton ASC.



- Andrea is tall. At 5'10", she has been a stunt double for the likes of Tricia Helfer, Daryl Hannah, and Téa Leoni. 

- She's a pretty good roller skater. In the mid-aughts, Andrea wrote and performed a one-woman show on roller skates and toured it across Canada. You heard that right.
