SHE-HULK Series Lands Head Writer With Nerd Cred

Marvel Studios' SHE-HULK series for Disney+ has landed its head writer who has a tremendous amount of nerd credentials. Jessica Gao is an Emmy-winning scribe who has written for RICK & MORTY, SILICON VALLEY, and ROBOT CHICKEN to new a few.

This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter:

"Gao’s hiring points to how Marvel may be approaching the series. The scribe, repped by 3 Arts Entertainment, has numerous animation credits such as Nickelodeon’s The Mighty B! as well as her work on Rick and Morty. She won an Emmy for penning the episode 'Pickle Rick.' She also wrote episodes of HBO’s Silicon Valley and wrote and exec produced a comedy pilot for ABC titled Lazy Rich Asians, which shot this year."

There is no release date for SHE-HULK, but she will be a part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Disney+, as seen in this photo taken while at Disney's D23 Expo this past summer.
