Actor/Writer/Host Briana Lane from Amazon's THE LAST TYCOON, YOUNG AND HUNGRY, and THE NEW NORMAL!!!
New Podcast with Actor/Writer Briana Lane!
An LA native, Briana was raised by two psychologist parents (it’s not what you think!). While in high school, she was accepted to NYU Tisch School's musical theater program for high school students, which led to her majoring in musical theater at UCLA’s School of Film, Theater and Television for college. Right before graduating, she got her first job as a writer at CBS. She then went on to write, host and produce several shows for CBS’s new media platforms, CBS Mobile and CBS.com. She has hosted for E! News, MSN and Lionsgate to name a few, and most recently can be seen on a satirical news show on Uproxx called THE DESK.
After a few years of hosting and writing, she decided to pursue acting full time and booked a role in her first pilot, ABC's CANNED opposite Amanda Bynes. This year, Briana can be seen in Amazon’s THE LAST TYCOON opposite Kelsey Grammar and Matt Bomer. She is known for her recurring roles on Freeform’s YOUNG AND HUNGRY, NBC's THE NEW NORMAL, Freeform’s SWITCHED AT BIRTH and the lead role in Disney’s BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA 3.
When she’s not acting, she enjoys walking her dog Foxy, writing her series COUCH PEOPLE opposite Sterling Sulieman (STILL STAR CROSSED) and Sunkrish Bala (CASTLE), and making music in her new band FIDELITY INN with actress/musician Kate Miner from the band MINER.
