writer | producer
I’m David Cornue, a creator, writer, producer, and composer. My most recent television project was TRIAGE, an ABC medical drama produced by 20th Television that I created, wrote, and executive produced. I was incredibly fortunate to work with CRIMINAL MINDS showrunner Erica Messer and director Jon M. Chu of IN THE HEIGHTS and CRAZY RICH ASIANS fame.
As a writer and consulting producer, I’ve worked on various television projects for major studios and networks, including ABC, FOX, A&E, and USA Network. One of my most notable projects is UNSPEAKABLE, an episodic pilot presentation I wrote, produced, and scored. Directed by my wife and frequent collaborator, Milena Govich, the pilot made its mark by premiering at SXSW and winning Best Pilot at several film festivals. At the moment, I’m adapting a Stephen King novel into a series with the author’s approval and oversight.
My entrepreneurial spirit also led to founding New Core Productions, where I’ve produced and sold three indie features and wrote/produced the sports comedy #LUCKY NUMBER, starring Tom Pelphrey and Method Man. Most recently, I wrote, directed, and composed a horror short called LET IT KILL YOU that has garnered considerable attention at film festivals, fueling excitement for a feature version of the story.
I also dedicate considerable time to nurturing talent and creativity in the industry, which is most evident in the exclusive writing group and script development service I launched. Industry leaders have recognized my work and potential, earning me a place in Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s inaugural class of Imagine Impact and the Fox Writers Lab.
Additionally, I’m a classically trained composer. My work includes film scores, acclaimed musicals, and songs featured on produced albums. Whether it’s with music or words, on stage or screen, I am a lifelong storyteller.
