Guest: Imani Robinson- Creator, Actress, Inspiring Writer
Imani entered into the world of the arts at the early age of nine, and quickly realized that acting was her number one passion. She auditioned and got a recurring role on HBO’s, The Wire Season 4. Imani then attended Baltimore School for the Arts for high school where she studied the craft of acting. Shortly after, Scriptwriting became a new love of hers, and she was interested in learning more about that art form.
Imani attended the California Institute of the Arts, where she received a BFA in acting. She was co-directed by James Avery in The Colored Museum and co-directed by James Franco in A Streetcar Named Desire. While there, she had an internship on HBO’s, Treme in the Writers’ Office. After that internship ended, she interned at HBO in the Original Programming department. After Imani graduated with a BFA from CalArts, she moved back to the East Coast. She auditioned and got accepted into a Shakespeare company in Connecticut. She wanted to learn more about the television industry and was curious about the process behind the camera. She was hired as an on set PA on the pilot of HBO’s, The Deuce. Once the show was picked up, she was working as the Writers’ Office Assistant for Season 1. Imani was also blessed to have been cast in a role on episode 5 during that same season. After season 1 of The Deuce ended, Imani moved back to California and got accepted into UCLA’s Professional Program in Screenwriting. Once The Deuce got renewed for its 2nd and 3rd season, Imani returned to New York to work as the Executive Producers’ Assistant. Imani’s career journey has been nothing short of a consistent blessing. Her name Imani means ‘Faith’ and Nia (her middle name) means ‘Purpose’ — both of which she tries to live by daily.
