Tate Hanyok is a writer-actor-producer focused on female-driven comedy and young adult stories. She was named one of the AFF & Moviemaker
Top 25 Writers to Watch and one of the Top 100 Emerging Writers on Tracking Board’s 2019 Young and Hungry List. As a California native transplant, by way of colonial Virginia, Tate’s bleeding liberal heart and perspective are steeped in the unpredictable (and hilarious) reality of the underdog, and the strength and magic of community. As a storyteller she relishes in uplifting themes that are universal, aims to unify viewers with laughter, and is driven by a burning desire to tell the stories of her unsung heroes.
As a writer, she’s most recently been hired by Picturestart to adapt the WattPad novel Along for the Ride into a motion picture, and has also written The Pet Nup and Family Week for Mucho Mas. As a producer, Tate executive produced her feature script Sex APPeal alongside American High for Hulu, and she both produced and starred in the indie feature film Love and Baseball.
Additionally, as an actress, Tate has guest starred in many notable shows and films including The Office, Superstore, The Detour, Community, Shameless, Transparent, Burt Wonderstone, and many more. She is also a seasoned improvisor who has appeared in nearly 100 commercials. Her multi-hyphenate career began on the stage, where she is a company member with The B Street Theater at the Sofia Center for the Arts in CA.
