Before taking the plunge into screenwriting, Cat Dale studied archaeology and worked on excavations around the world. Once her Indiana Jones dreams were fulfilled, she headed to Austin to study screenwriting at the University of Texas. Her latest script, MOUNT PLEASANT, is the winner of ScreenCraft’s Pilot Launch Competition and 2nd place winner in the Shore Scripts TV Competition. It was also a finalist for the Seed&Spark Fellowship at the Stowe Story Labs, Women in Film + The Black List Episodic Lab, the WeScreenplay's TV Pilot competition, and was a Semifinalist for the International Screenwriting Association's FastTrack Fellowship and ScreenCraft’s Writers’ Residency. MOUNT PLEASANT has also advanced to the Second Round of the Sundance Episodic Lab. She is currently producing her first feature film, BEASTS UNDISCOVERED, which she co-wrote, and is set to shoot 2020.
