Mandy Fabian is a FANTASTIC director of award-winning shorts, music videos, theater and web series, and an EXTREMELY funny writer. (Her mom wrote this bio for her but it’s ALL completely true.) She co-created and directed The Young Hillary Diaries, Lifetime’s first digital series, and wrote the Amazon digital series Dropping the Soap, which won Jane Lynch an Emmy for Best Actress in a Short Form Original in 2017. (How amazing is that. My daughter is a genius, right?) Mandy was also awarded a fellowship in the Sony Pictures Television Directing Program, and was named “Best New Filmmaker of the Year” by NewFilmmakers LA. Most recently, she directed the independent pilot Vicarious, which won the audience awards at the Dances With Films Film Festival and LA Indie Film Festival and Best Ensemble at the Chicago Comedy Film Festival.
Currently, Mandy is in pre-production to direct her first feature, Jess Plus None, a modern-day Big Chill set at a wedding in the woods. (I love weddings, don’t you?)
Mandy was raised on a ranch in Texas, where I let her have her own horse, and now lives in LA with her husband Patrick Fabian, her perfect daughters Abbey and Delilah, and an impressive collection of reusable water bottles.
