As a long time writer, Shelley Gabert’s articles on film and television have appeared in a variety of publications including Variety, Los Angeles Times, Script, Creative Screenwriting, American Cinematographer, Written By and the DGA magazine. She has covered television for Emmy magazine for more than a decade and for three years wrote a television column and feature articles for FilmStew.com (many picked up by yahoo and other sites).

She’s immersed herself the television industry — from the writer/producers to cinematographers.

She’s written about the craft of writing for television and interviewed the creator/producers of The Closer, Damages, Saving Grace, FlashForward, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Lie to Me, Army Wives, Rescue Me, Mad Men and Chuck, to name a few.

Over the course of many years, she has also developed an extensive array of contacts at the networks/studios from executives in programming to publicist. She attends TCA’s winter and summer press tours and is invited to many other set visits and press events.
