BLOCKERS

KAY CANNON (Directed by) makes her feature-film directorial debut with Blockers. Cannon received rave reviews for her debut screenplay Pitch Perfect, and she wrote and co-produced the hit follow-up Pitch Perfect 2 and the recent Pitch Perfect 3.

Cannon served as the executive producer, creator and show-runner of the Netflix series Girlboss, based on Sophia Amoruso's best-selling autobiography, which starred Britt Robertson.

Cannon got her start at such venerable comedic training grounds as The Second City, The iO West Theater and The ComedySportz Theatre. While writing and performing around Chicago, she met Tina Fey, a fellow Second City alumna, and the two became fast friends. Then, when the former Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update" co-host began 30 Rock, she sought out like-minded, funny peeps to join the writing staff and turned to Cannon, who happily accepted.

Cannon worked her way up from staff writer to supervising producer on 30 Rock. She's a three-time Primetime Emmy-nominated writer, twice for Outstanding Comedy Series and once for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. She has also won three Writers Guild of America Awards as well as a Peabody, all for her work on 30 Rock.

Cannon also served as a co-executive producer on New Girl, a consulting producer on Cristela and co-produced the hit feature Baby Mama.
