Lena Murisier is an award-winning writer, her creative portfolio including TV series, features, documentaries, and interactive games. Recently, Lena was in the Writers’ Room of the BBC, BAFTA-Winning, Emmy- Nominated series SECRET LIFE OF BOYS to edit storylines and punch up jokes. Additionally, she co-wrote & co-produced the movie A GIRL LIKE HIM sequel to A GIRL LIKE HER (2015, Netflix) with six-time Emmy & Tony Nominee Tovah Feldshuh (THE IDOLMAKER, KISSING JESSICA STEIN) and worked closely with Emmy Nominee Zachary Quinto (STAR TREK, MARGIN CALL, HEROES) on her documentary TAKE US TO CHURCH.
Growing up in a Swiss town (famous for Chaplin and chocolate), Lena's multicultural home was her first storybook. Raised by a single parent in a home rich with diverse cultural influences: her grandfather was born and raised in Africa; her grandmother was a painter. Her journey from Swiss advertising whiz (keeping the Swiss radio and TV landscape alive with a national advertising campaign that echoed all the way to the U.S.) to L.A. screenwriter is a tale in itself.
Once dreaming of Formula 1, the lack of female representation in the sport pushed her to write about it instead. Lena moved to Los Angeles in 2018. There, she honed her craft and graduated from the New York Film Academy of Los Angeles. Swiss roots, L.A. shoots, and Taco Tuesday's most loyal fan, she's as multilingual (French, German, English) as she is multifaceted.
Today, Lena continues to craft narratives that resonate across cultures, all while she continues to advocate to make Taco Tuesday a National Holiday.
Lena’s screenplays and short films have won many festivals and contests. She has several projects in production, post-production and different stages of development.
