KP IS A STORYTELLER ...
taking complex characters from page to screen through the lens of a sarcastic, sometimes over-dramatic, and always warm, queer, POC woman.
ON the page
Kristina Pupo as a screenwriter specializes in tv pilots and features in the dramedy space. currently she is shopping her original series, Out in love, a half-hour dramedy about a husband and wife who simultaneously realize they might, kinda, sorta be a little...gay.
kristina is also showrunner and writer for fmal (fuck my after-life), a fiction comedy podcast that poses the question, what if being an angel was like community service, but if you don't make your hours...you go to hell.in 2022, kristina is working on her debut feature film script, costars as well as writing episodic/short content for queerials.
aside from dramedies, kp has written original sci-fi pilots, mokumentaries, supernatural teen episodics and much more. what all of her projects have in common is a strong, queer, female lead and a crew of three-dimensional characters whose race, gender identity and sexuality are just a part of who they are...not the entire story.If you would like to work with Kristina on your next project or chat over coffee—just reach out!
