Jackie Turner grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Indianapolis and writes TV show reviews, her specialty being soap operas and mid morning talk shows. She got her big break in the world of journalism as an assistant editor for Cosmopolitan and leveraged that experience to get her first full-time writing position at Readers Digest, covering TV and film. Jackie graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in English and Creative Writing with a focus towards linguistics and writing screenplays. She seeks to answer such questions as: What elements of a drama make a series successful? And is there a universal form of comedy that will remain just as relevant decades from now as it is today? Though she does not focus her efforts towards writing television screenplays, she has always dreamed of coming up with the next smash hit TV show.
