Howard Jordan Jr., runner-up in the Script Pipeline TV Writing Competition with the comedy Family Be Like, was staffed on the CBS series Superior Donuts in 2017. His first solo-written episode, “Sofia’s Choice,” aired in February 2018. The show starred Judd Hirsch, Jermaine Fowler, Katy Sagal, and Maz Jobrani. Superior Donuts was his first writing opportunity on a network series.
He later joined the staff of Netflix’s Family Reunion, starring Tia Mowry (Sister, Sister) and the CBS sitcom The Unicorn in 2019.
“When I relocated from NYC to LA to pursue sitcom writing, everyone I met in the industry said it wasn’t about entering competitions, it was about entering the right competition,” Howard said. “Script Pipeline was the turning point.”
