Co-Executive Producer | "Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist"
Davah Avena is the industry’s first & only Can-exican (Canadian-Mexican) television writer/producer. Not only can she break story and write awesome scripts, she can also tap her own maple tree and make a killer margarita. After graduating from USC Film School & the National Hispanic Television Writers’ program, Davah got her first network gig writing on MEDIUM for NBC. When she left MEDIUM (the politically correct way of saying she was fired) she went on to sell pilot scripts to ABC FAMILY, NICKELODEON & SONY. Davah’s pilots most often reflect her youth growing up working in the family business and her love of magic realism. After several years of selling pilots, she went on to staff on EAST LOS HIGH, DEVIOUS MAIDS, DAYTIME DIVAS, KEVIN (PROBABLY) SAVES THE WORLD, GRAND HOTEL & is currently an co-executive producer on ZOEY’S EXTRAORDINARY PLAYLIST which will premiere on NBC in 2020.
