Emmy Spotlight: Ashley Nicole Black's Pen Has The Golden Touch
“It’s a truth universally acknowledged that the moment one area of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.”
Screenwriter, producer and actress Ashley Nicole Black, who’s an unabashed lover of romantic comedies, can relate to this classic line from Bridget Jones’s Diary except for that last bit. This award-winning multi-hyphenate is a double Emmy nominee for her work writing two variety shows helmed by Black women, Robin Thede’s A Black Lady Sketch Show and Amber Ruffin’s late night series The Amber Ruffin Show and she could walk home a winner when the 2021 Emmys are awarded on September 11, 12 and 19.
While the awards are a few weeks away, Black is busy producing and writing the second season of the critical darling Ted Lasso. Much like the series effusive lead character, Black is radically optimist about one thing that makes her a star in any writer’s room: the power of storytelling. But how she uses it in her work makes her a true Hollywood gem.
