Ron McCants



Ron writes dramas that explore the human experience. His stories are often fueled by dark secrets and deep shames at the intersection of crime and family because his family’s full of addicts, pimps, prostitutes, murderers, CIA operatives, business owners, professional athletes, detectives and educators straight out of a Flannery O’Connor novel. Ron’s a TV writer because he didn’t know any better. He’s from a small town in Missouri where its chief exports are cotton and violence. He has 9 siblings and lucked out when some college named Dartmouth sent him a free application, and he began his odyssey. When you have 9 siblings and are from the corner of Nowhere and Nothing, your main goal when you leave home is to survive. While Ron received a B.A. in Engineering from Dartmouth College, the college unexpectedly taught him how to dream. Ron had severe difficulty with verbal and written communication, but he took a writing course every term. He wanted to take his greatest weakness and make it a strength. While honing the craft, Ron worked in financial planning, private equity, information management, biotechnological engineering and business development. He moved to California for an M.F.A. in Playwriting from UC, San Diego. He became an award-winning playwright, got married, had two girls and broke free from the talons of poverty. In 2016, he was selected as a Disney ABC Program Writer and staffed on Speechless. Ron’s still a fearless adventurer with no map who’s got grit in his crawl. He was most recently a staff writer on Chicago Fire, but he’s written a music video for Nas and worked on Marvel’s Falcon and The Winter Soldier. He runs an organization aimed at improving the career outcomes of marginalized writers through data. He loves the gym and plans to compete in his first bodybuilding competition in 2020.
