Sara Saedi
Minority & Women Writers

Sara Saedi was born in Tehran, Iran smack-dab in the middle of a war and an Islamic Revolution. As the story goes, she entered the world to the sounds of bombs exploding near the hospital. Though her memory of the day is a little fuzzy, she now says the life and death stakes surrounding her birth helped prepare her for…staffing season.

Sara’s TV career began as a creative executive for ABC Daytime, but in 2009 she quit her day job to pursue her dream of being a writer. She’s since written three TV movies for ABC Family and was awarded a Daytime Emmy for What If…, a web series she penned for ABC. Most recently, Sara was a staff writer on the FOX sitcom The Goodwin Games. She cried and drank a lot of scotch the day the show ended (two things she swears she has not done since).
