A self-proclaimed “indoor kid,” Anna Thorup spent the majority of her North Carolina childhood in front of the TV. Which her parents felt guilty about until she started making money writing television.
At fourteen-years-old, her ambition to work in the industry was cemented when she was awarded a Make-A-Wish Trip to visit the set of THE OFFICE (on a Reddit thread about said trip strangers still speculate whether or not she’s dead now). She attended Emerson College in Boston with a degree in Writing for Film & TV, completing an internship at Skydance TV in the process.
Upon graduation, she moved to Los Angeles where she accepted a variety of support staff positions — working as a Reader and Script Coverage writer, a Coordinator on DreamWorks Animation’s ABOMINABLE, a Creative Assistant for Netflix, and a Writer’s Assistant on BEST FOOT FORWARD (Apple) — before diving into writing full-time.
Since taking the plunge, she has written on several unannounced, animated shows for various streamers. In 2021, she sold and developed an original live-action comedy pilot with ABC and is currently in development on her first comedy feature.
She is repped at the Cartel. You can find her on Instagram at @annathorup.
Anna is new to Script Anatomy, so testimonials will be coming soon!
