JERRY ROBBINS has completed twenty-one feature screenplays. His horror script, The Legend of Lake Hollow is currently filming in Tennessee by Penumbra Entertainment, and his western, Catch the Bullet starring Tom Skerritt, Peter Facinelli, Jay Pickett, and Gattlin Griffith is awaiting release from Feifer Worldwide/Milestone Studios.

His Christmas At Exit 24, The Unexpected Romance of Captain Sam, and Christmas At Chestnut Cottage are currently under option.

Other screenplays include the animated holiday musical Climb (Academy Nicholls Fellowship Quarterfinalist), Romcoms The Christmas Visitor, The Dickens You Say, and the faith based Always Christmas.

Horror stories include Tulips, Gifted Children, Encounter at Hopkinsville, They Beckon, Wicked Things, westerns Guns of Powder River, The Fugitives Trail, and the teen comedy Million Dollar High.

His scripts have won “Best Screenplay” honors in five festivals, and were “Finalists,” or “Official Selection” in several others. Jerry began writing audio dramas twenty-five years ago with his company, Colonial Radio Theatre. In that time, he has written over four hundred and eighty productions of original stories (Powder River, Yankee Clipper) and adaptations of the classics (King Solomon’s Mines, Captain Blood). He has won numerous awards, including two Parents’ Choice Awards.

He collaborated with Ray Bradbury on four award winning productions; adapting Mr. Bradbury’s stage scripts of Dandelion Wine and Something Wicked This Way Comes for audio, and the legendary author asked him to write the scripts for The Halloween Tree and The Martian Chronicles (the only time the classic book has been dramatized in its entirety). All were released by Blackstone Audio and Brilliance Audio, and remain popular audio titles on Amazon and Audible.

He also worked with acclaimed Broadway playwright William Luce to adapt his play Barrymore for audio, released in 2008 by Brilliance Audio.

He loves old movies (especially anything with Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, Garbo, Claudette Colbert, and Donald Duck), history (his great grandfather x7 was the famed Giles Corey who was executed during the Salem Witch Trials in 1692), and of course, writing, which occupies most of his time. Jerry lives just outside of Boston, MA
