Lauriel had already dropped out of high school, moved to Los Angeles, been signed to a record label, gone to rehab, had a dark night of the soul, and moved back to try to make it in Hollywood again when she sold her first pilot at age 23.

After a failed run at becoming a teen pop star, she could’ve done the logical thing. Gone back to school and got her degree. Instead, she pitched music video treatments by day, traveled the world, and taught herself how to write by night; reading every pilot she could get her hands on.

Since then, she has sold a pilot to YouTube Red, a series to Quibi, and worked on Prodigal Son as a staff writer and story editor.

Two, wildly different teenage girls: one, a starlet, and the other, an addict on the run from her debts, find their lives changed when they become roommates in an all-girls psych ward. Fighting for and against each other, parents, patients, staff, and their own sanity—Peaches is a darkly comedic coming-of-age story about how sometimes, you gotta lose your mind to find yourself.
