Joey Slamon

A Los Angeles native, Joey’s early days working on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" were the beginning of her career in comedy. Her talents and work ethic were rewarded on the show with illustrious duties such as bartending and buying hemorrhoid cream. Her undying love of the witty and subversive comedy "Arrested Development" led her to Imagine, working for David Nevins. As Arrested worked its way through various stages of development, from a series to a feature film, Joey was paying a long con, hoping to land her dream job. Impressed by her other skills (not the stalking), Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman invited Joey to help map out the company’s ambitious adaptation of Stephen King’s "The Dark Tower." Her work at Imagine finally caught the attention of Mitch Hurwitz, who asked her to join the staff in rebooting "Arrested" for Netflix where she earned a Co- Producer title by the end of the season. After the Netflix premiere, Joey got to work re-editing all of the shot footage for a planned “continuation” season of "Arrested" to air on Fox. They wrote all new voice over and reedited the existing footage; converting the ambitious season to a brand new series of episodes.
With "Arrested’s" future on hold, she focused on her own projects, successfully selling her inventive 1⁄2 hour horror-comedy "Trapped" to Starz with Rob Zombie Directing and Mila Kunis Executive Producing. Never to shy away from a full workload, Joey joined the writing staff of "Those Who Can’t" for TruTv. Over the next 2 seasons, she proved invaluable in helping guide the creative direction of the show and her production/post- production skills were praised by TruTV. When Tru greenlit their latest scripted 1⁄2 hour comedy "I’m Sorry" to series, Joey won over series star/creator Andrea Savage and was named Showrunner/Executive Producer. "I’m Sorry" premieres this July.
