Zaiver Sinnett


Set in the 1960s, three men struggle with their sexual identity while balancing work, family, and most importantly: each other.

Zaiver Sinnett (he/him) is a Black LGBTQ writer from West Virginia and a graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts' MFA program in Writing for Screen & Television. He is currently an Executive Story Editor on STATION 19 on ABC. Previous to that, he was an Executive Producers' Assistant on GREY'S ANATOMY.

While some were raised by wolves, Zaiver was raised by women: fiercely protective, loyal, and badass. He writes about queens: women and femmes who forge their own Queendoms in order to cope with their broken families.
