Jeff Cocco

Born and raised in Orange New Jersey, Jeff started out his professional life in Manhattan, a mere eleven miles away, in advertising – which he hated. He ran away to Los Angeles, started writing, and has never looked back. And although his overnight success took 20 years, persistence has paid off. Jeff has been a Nicholls Fellowship quarter and semi finalist several times, has had several scripts optioned, and currently has a short film in post production that will be debuting in February.

He also has a play that has had two staged readings and will be opening as a full-on production in the Summer of 2018. He is very excited to be working with Woolf & Lapin and looks forward to bringing his scripts JERSEY BLUE and UNCLE JACK to the screen with their guidance. He spends his spare time restoring a 1952 Packard and being eternally grateful for his patient and understanding partner.
