MOREEN DEMI LITTRELL
Moreen is a multi-hyphenated creative with experience that spans entertainment, fashion and comedy.
As a “one-stop-shop” of writing, directing, producing, shooting and editing, Moreen works with top TV production companies including CBS TV Studios and World of Wonder, developing unscripted shows and documentaries for virtually all networks, spanning all genres. Highlights include the bladesmith-competition format, "Forged in Fire" (History Channel), two documentaries for PBS, and network pilots. In 2016, she launched ISIZZLES to focus primarily on unscripted TV. Prior to that, Moreen was director of development for Outpost Entertainment (an ITV company, which is the largest independent TV production company in the USA). There, her ideas generated major network development deals with CNBC and Freeform among others.
Moreen is also an award-winning filmmaker. Her directing credits include a multi-cam network TV pilot for Freeform (featuring Emmy and Latin Grammy winning talent), and Meet the Zillas, an absurdist short film that won "Best Film Audience Award" at the Los Angeles Underground Film Festival. Shot in 4 days, it featured 27 principals and 40 extras including Jessica Pohly ("Pepper" from Pee Wee Herman's Big Holiday), Nancy Daly ("Suburbicon,"), Emmy-nominee Blake Berris, and Brandon Moynihan (aka “Captain Obvious"). She has also directed many commercials for Arbonne, Inc..
Moreen is also a three-time published author, specifically: author of LOST IN MANHATTAN, a novel that was previously in development at Oxygen Media, and co-author of two comedy monologue books (Women's Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny, and Teen Girls' Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny). Comedy is a large part of Moreen’s repertoire; two months after her stand-up debut, she was offered a contract by New Wave Entertainment (Dane Cook’s management company) for her debut comedy album. See www.moreenlittrell.com for comedy.
Her background consists of fashion as well. She was a menswear designer at Liz Claiborne, Inc. where she was named a top ten finalist in a company-wide design competition. Judges included Angela Ahrendts, the former CEO of Burberry. In 2012, Moreen created FASHION ALERT, a B2B e-zine (distribution 200K+) for MAGIC (North America's largest fashion trade show), which recorded the highest open rates in company history. As its editor-in-chief, she reported to Tom Florio, the former publisher of Vogue.
Moreen graduated from USC with a B.A. in Creative Writing and Cinematic Arts. Early in her career, she gained considerable industry experience working at William Morris Agency (now WME) where she assisted the worldwide head of TV literary, and at ICM where she assisted the head of theatrical talent. She was also the 52nd person hired at Oxygen Media, leaving her fashion career to marry two passions: crafting entertaining content and empowering females.
