Current Information

A graduate of the University of Manitoba and the American Film Institute, Collin Friesen realized long ago that writing about himself in the third person makes him dizzy. After moving to LA, he sold projects to HBO (two things) Universal (one thing) and Fox Searchlight (kind of a thing). He’s worked on the “X Files” spinoff “The Lone Gunmen,” was selected for the Paramount Apprenticeship Writers Program and has written several features including The Big White with Robin Williams, The Con Artist with Donald Sutherland, and a ton he fixed but didn’t get credit for because Hollywood.
