IMDb profile

Carla Robinson is a TV writer whose professional credits so far are limited to only writing for the Re-imagined series of Battlestar Galactica.

Robinson joined the Re-imagined series as a staff writer in the first season and contributed the teleplays for two episodes ("You Can't Go Home Again" and "Colonial Day"). She became the series's story editor in the second season after first season story editors Bradley Thompson and David Weddle became producers. Robinson wrote a further episode for the second season, "The Farm".

Apart from writing for Battlestar Galactica, Robinson has had considerable success getting her spec scripts noticed in writing competitions. She won 1st Place in the Action-Drama category at the 4th Spec Scriptacular Competition in December 2003 [1] with her spec script for Law & Order entitled "The Good Wife," according to the competition's webpage at TVWriter.com. In the same competition, Robinson’s The West Wing spec script, "Bravado," was also a finalist. (According to IMDB, [2] [3] it does not appear that either script was ever produced.) The competition is run under the auspices of the Cloud Creek Institute for the Arts, a creative community in St. Joe, Arkansas, started by veteran television writer Larry Brody in 2002. [4]

The following year, Robinson placed as a finalist - twice - in the Scriptwriters Network's Carl Sautter Memorial Scriptwriting Competition in the category for one-hour TV shows with a spec script for The West Wing entitled "Undercurrents" and another script for Six Feet Under called "For the Living." [5]

Robinson left the series by the end of Season 2. She was replaced as story editor by Anne Cofell Saunders.
