Lexie Kahanovitz

Maybe it was living on the circus train as a kid or her obsession with Pee Wee’s Playhouse, but Lexie seemed destined to write for kids. After receiving a full graduate fellowship in screenwriting from Tisch’s Dramatic Writing Dept, NYU, she landed her first staff writing job on Amazon’s Pete the Cat. At Apple, she had the honour of adapting Frog and Toad for TV. She then produced a pilot for PBS called City Island, a comedy about civics. Now in its second season, she is proud to say she’s made civics funny. While her two-year-old daughter is at daycare, Lexie’s developing projects and writing for the likes of Imagine, Mattel, Roddenberry, Netflix, Max, Super Prods, and more. Lexie’s mission in life is twofold: to make difficult subjects funny; and to show that love and kindness are always the way to go.
