Aline Brosh McKenna is best known for her adaptation of the popular novel, The Devil Wears Prada. For that screenplay, McKenna garnered Writers Guild, BAFTA, and Scripter award nominations. In 2014, McKenna added television to her resume when she and Rachel Bloom co-created the critically acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning comedy series, Crazy Ex- Girlfriend, on which McKenna was showrunner and executive producer. McKenna also directed the finale episodes of all four seasons of the series. McKenna currently has multiple film and television projects in development through her company, Lean Machine. Next year she will write/direct and produce the Netflix film Your Place Or Mine, starring Reese Witherspoon. Recently, McKenna and Eisner Award-winning artist Ramon Perez created the graphic novel Jane, a contemporary version of the Jane Eyre story. The novel received two Eisner Award nominations, including Best Publication for Teens.
