Rae Benjamin

Los Angeles, California, United States

Rae Benjamin is a TV/film writer and LA native. Her mother encouraged her writing from a young age and compiled booklets of her short stories to hand out as Christmas gifts each year…this was either super cute or super cheap, depending on which relative you ask. She finds humor in awkward, uncomfortable situations. Things that might not seem funny at first, things you maybe shouldn’t laugh at... and ultimately, things that have the power to broaden perspectives and empathy. Rae was most recently a Staff Writer on season 3 of THE WITCHER (Netflix) and also served as co-writer and co-executive producer for an upcoming anime feature. Her animated comedy series is currently in development with Topic Studios. Rae is also the founder of In the Cut, an organization dedicated to making the industry more accessible to Black creatives and other people of color.
