Proud native of Brooklyn, New York, and a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts (BFA, Film & Television Production and Dramatic Writing), Bridgett Michele Lawrence is the creator, writer, director, and executive producer of romantic comedy web series The Value of Ex.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Lawrence decided to “greenlight” herself, rather than wait for Hollywood to give her permission to do what she loves. It has truly paid dividends. Since The Value of Ex was launched on YouTube in May 2014, the show has been invited to multiple festivals, including the American Black Film Festival, the HollyWeb Festival, and even the Raindance Web Fest in London, England. With the show already picked up for distribution by the new online streaming service KweliTV, and heading into production for season 2, Bridgett made some time to share the global journey of this festival-recognized series.
