About Adanna Teemac
At the wise age of 13, Adanna realized how peculiar it was to be born and raised in Dallas, Texas to a Nigerian father and Black American mother. It meant that she liked her grits sugary (don’t @ her) and her tea sweet. But, unlike the Black characters she felt a connection with on-screen, it also meant that she liked her plantains fried, savory, and served with Jollof rice. But the closest she’d come to seeing this reality portrayed was with the film Coming to America. Adanna realized that, to see her missing half, she’d have to write it herself. Crushing her African father’s dreams of Yale, she decided to learn the rules of the trade at the University of Southern California. While there, she interned at Temple Hill Entertainment and Miramax while co-creating and executive-producing a variety talk show entitled “The Art Craze” which ran for three seasons and featured guests like cinematographer Robert Yeoman. After graduation, Adanna placed as a second rounder in the 2018 Austin Film Festival and semi-finalist in the 2020 Break The Room Writer’s Initiative. Adanna also took the first steps in her journey of becoming a staffed television writer as an assistant at 3 Arts Entertainment. Equipped with even more knowledge of the comedy world, Adanna sincerely hopes that she’s doing this correctly and asks that you be gentle.
Loud Sis Productions is currently in development on multiple television, feature, digital and social impact projects and has an overall deal with Sony Pictures Television.
