Tawnya Bhattacharya is a writer of ABC's A Million Little Things.


Early LifeEdit

Not much is known about Bhattacharya's early life. She is an alumnus of Cornish College of the Arts Conservatory, studied acting and playwriting, and interned with playwright, Marie Irene Fornes and New City Theater in Seattle.[1]


Bhattacharya started her career around 2005. She works as a writer and producer. She was also a FOX Writer's Intensive fellow where her semi-autobiographical pilot was optioned.[1]

Bhattacharya is the writing partner of Ali Laventhol. They previously wrote on Famous in Love (Freeform), The Night Shift (NBC), Perception (TNT), The Client List (Lifetime) and Fairly Legal (USA). They are former NBC Writers on the Verge fellows, and were semi-finalists for the ABC Disney Fellowship before getting a job that took them out of the running.[1]

In 2011, Bhattacharya launched Script Anatomy, just as her career was taking off. Her objective was to use her experience of breaking into the industry and building a career to help other writers do the same. She created a unique curriculum with trademark tools for development, writing and rewriting, which have helped hundreds of writers either staffed, find representation, or sell pilots, screenplays and novels. As a guest instructor, Bhattacharya has brought the Script Anatomy method to ISA (the International Screenwriters Association), Stage 32, the TV Writers Fund, and, for the past 3 years, the Disney | ABC Writing Program. She has mentored for ISA and CineStory TV Writers Retreat in Idyllwild.[1]

In 2018, Bhattacharya wrote an episode of ABC's A Million Little Things.[2]

Personal lifeEdit

Bhattacharya currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband.
