Pamela Ribon is a screenwriter, TV writer, comic book writer, author, and best-selling novelist. After working on Moana for Walt Disney Animation Studios and the upcoming Smurfs: The Lost Village for Sony Animation Pictures, she’s currently back at Disney Animation co-writing the Untitled Wreck-It Ralph Sequel. She’s recently been named one of Variety’s 10 Screenwriters to Watch. On the TV side, she developed a half-hour based on the best-selling memoir “Drunk Mom” by Jowita Bydlowska with Melanie Lynskey attached to star. She also has an original feature Be-Fri with David Schwimmer attached to direct.
She just launched SLAM! — an original comic book series set in the world of roller derby — to rave reviews. She has also penned issues of Rick and Morty, and is currently creating both a graphic novel and an original series for Oni Press.
Her comedic memoir Notes to Boys (and Other Things I Shouldn’t Share in Public), which NPR called “brain-breakingly funny,” will be re-released in paperback in February 2017.
She’s been in comedy rooms for both network and cable television, most notably the Emmy award-winning Samantha Who?. Pamela has adapted her popular novels for both film and television (Why Girls are Weird, You Take It From Here), and developed original series and features for ABC, ABC Family, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney Channel and 20th Century Fox Productions. She was a narration consultant on the DisneyNature documentary Bears.
Pamela was an Oprah.com contributor, a flagship contributor to Television Without Pity, and a weekly columnist for the Austin American-Statesman. She’s known as a pioneer in the blogging world with her successful website pamie.com, where she launched such viral essays as “How I Might Have Just Become the Newest Urban Legend” and “Barbie Fucks it Up Again,” the latter of which led to #FeministHackerBarbie, a revamp of Mattel’s products and marketing for Barbie, and the creation of Game Developer Barbie as “Career of the Year.” Pamela’s stage work has been showcased at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival and she created the accidental international scandal known as Call Us Crazy: The Anne Heche Monologues.
A former Austinite with a BFA in Acting from the University of Texas, Pamela has been entered into the Oxford English Dictionary under “muffin top.” That is not a joke. You can follow her @pamelaribon, where she somehow writes even more.
