In a moment of questionable reasoning and brazen stupidity during the 1990’s, twenty something Roslyn Fleischer decided to challenge her intellectual capacity and monthly bank balances by joining the teeming leagues of the Los Angeles writing population. She left her relatively secure job in the film development world at Paramount Pictures to pursue a break as a comedy writer. She went to work at Castle Rock Entertainment on the sitcom pilot NOWHERE FAST, for CBS, with its creator, which, ironically, is exactly where it went, even with the producers and crew of SEINFELD, still in production at the time, on board and collaborating.
Then she tried comedic screenwriting, a world more familiar to her. Bucking the outrageous odds in her first year screenwriting, Roslyn Fleischer went from her first professional assignment for producer Steven Bratter, rewriting his project THE GENEVA GANG, for Warner Bros., to writing the family comedy YOUNG HEARTS UNLIMITED for Tomorrow Film Corp. and the Fox Family Channel, which premiered during Sweeps week of May, 1999. Fleischer then wrote another original family comedy, ROBBIE HOOD, for Kushner-Locke International, which has yet to be produced. But she got paid.
Now feeling pretty good about herself as a writer after a year or so of working steadily, Roslyn Fleischer decided it was time to dive into the deep end of the pool. Drawing on her wacky family history, she created her first spec screenplay, also a comedy, BLAME IT ON CAINE, which Sharon Stone was made a $6 million pay or play offer to play the lead in during January of 1999. Fleischer then wrote a romantic comedy for producer David Madden at Paramount, BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER, MORE, still unproduced, thus also available to date. Afterward, she finished her first novel, MYSTIC MANIA, due out for publication in November, 2009, and a martial arts dramatic screenplay, ETERNAL SPRING, which was optioned to A Wink and a Nod Productions in August 2007. She then wrote a comedy, BLONDE WITH THE WIND, for producer David Ladd at MGM. She then rewrote a manuscript, THE GIRLS GUIDE TO ETIQUETTE, as its ghost writer, now in publication, then rewrote an independent film, a kids’ fantasy, JOURNEY TO THE WEST GATE, for Windhorse Entertainment.
Prior to becoming a screenwriter, Roslyn Fleischer was an assistant to various television and film agents at the Creative Artists Agency before she left with Paula Wagner and Tom Cruise to start Cruise/Wagner Productions at Paramount. Working in development with other writers, Roslyn helped develop TOP GUN II and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, among other projects.
In addition to her work in the entertainment industry, Fleischer was a reporter for StyleU4ea.com and Fashion Wire Daily. She was also a Contributing and Fashion Editor for THE BOOK, LOS ANGELES.
Fleischer was born in Lafayette, Louisiana and has a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Southern California.
