By Douglas Lorah

Orlando screenwriter Linda M. Andersson recently had a sitcom pilot "Misery Loves This Company" place in the semi-finals of the Scriptapalooza TV contest. Her pilot also placed as a Finalist in "The Spec Scriptacular" on

She also placed her short script "Clothes Minded" in the Top 300 (of 1024 entries worldwide) of the American Gem 4th / The Write Brothers Short Script Competition.

When asked how long she has been writing, this is what Linda had to say:

"I've been writing screenplays for about 2 years. Right before then, I had begun writing a novel and quickly realized that it wasn't the format for me, so I began converting the novel to screenplay format. I've written (3) shorts; (1) sitcom pilot; 2 parts of a 6 part drama mini-series that I'll be marketing to cable; and (1) feature with a co-writer. I currently have a romantic comedy that I'm writing that is in its first draft, and I have various other outlines that I'm working on."

Linda also previously wrote for local and regional music magazines mostly reviewing concerts and interviewing national acts.

Logline: When the new guy joins the Finley Plastics team, he quickly realizes how dysfunctional his new work family is.
