MICHAEL JANN & MICHELE JOURDAN
Michael Jann is an Emmy-nominated late-night comedy writer for The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, in fact, he was the only Leno writer hired by Fallon. Out of 100,000 jokes written by Michael for both late-night shows, 10,000 were told on screen.
Michael has written for National Lampoon, Nick At Nite, and Cosmopolitan Magazine in which he actually offered dating advice to women. Seriously.
Originally from Fairfield Connecticut, Michael has now visited several states, including inebriation, confusion and panic. Michael’s screenwriting partner and newly-wed wife, Michele Jourdan, is the funny one; Mike’s the pretty one.
Michele Jourdan is from Austin Texas, and has now co-written four comedy feature screenplays. Her credits are like an oil well that hasn’t been discovered just yet -- but will any day now. Michele’s life is actually a romantic comedy; Mike’s job is to listen, write stuff down, and get credit for it.

LAUGHINGSTOCK (comedy, feature film)
A late-night writer who ridicules people for a living becomes a laughingstock himself as he pedals after a woman who just jilted him at the altar -- on a bicycle trip that was supposed to be their honeymoon.
NOT FULLY ENGAGED (comedy, feature film)
A popular talk-radio therapist agrees to marry her high-powered businessman boyfriend — if he gets the blessing of her 21-year-old, live-at-home, sign-twirler son. She does not expect this fun "male-bonding opportunity" to involve a Tijuana brothel.
CITRONELLA (animated, comedy, feature film)
“Only female Mosquitoes bite -- and we do it for love” explains Citronella, as she zooms toward a suburban backyard wedding, determined to be the first of her female squadron to get that solitary drop of blood needed to attract a male mosquito. (“Think of it as a red dress!” she explains.) But, when Citronella plants her beak in a phone-distracted bridesmaid, sees blood -- and faints, she’s nearly slapped dead (which she says would be preferable to “a life without love”). Desperate, she hatches a plan B: she outsmarts a spider to score a pair of Butterfly wings dangling in his web, and she dons them to catch the eye of a handsome male Butterfly, Emilio “The Big Dealio”, who recently lost his Butterfly wife. Citronella’s masquerade works; Butterflies live like pampered super-models, and Emilio invites her to Cabo for migration. But, when she’s suddenly captured in a butterfly net -- and discovers Emilio’s missing wife is still alive, Citronella will have to choose between a life of lies, and Steven -- the infuriatingly-loyal male Mosquito who loves her in spite of her fainting.
