She executive produced, wrote and starred in pilots for NBC (“Wolfgirl”) and TruTV (“Small Victories”), and co-wrote a pilot for TBS (“Basic”).

Other than that, Melissa is a Northwestern University graduate, an LA native, a cat owner, and really likes the idea of having hobbies. Like, maybe guitar? Should she try learning guitar?
