Aaron Serna, an aspiring Latino writer and recipient of ABC/Disney Writer’s Program, is moving to his big break on the new ABC series, Malibu Country, starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin. Their premiere episode airs this Friday November 2nd at 8:30e/7:30c.
Aaron is the youngest child of a hard-working single mom, Rosie (member of Las Comadres para las Americas). Pursuing a screenwriting degree at University of Texas-Austin’s prestigious Radio-Television-Film program he studied and graduated relocating to Los Angeles to gain more experience. There he reenforced his portfolio as a writers’ assistant for Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica, a production assistant on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, and an assistant to the Vice President of Programming at ABC Family to name a few. Serna was selected to the ABC/Disney Writer’s Program pairing with industry veterans and mentors guiding them to become remarkable writers.
Congratulations Aaron on your new project! Best of luck.
Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow on ABC, my former employer.
