Ester Lou Weithers is the proud child of Caribbean immigrants, raised in Houston, Texas. The daughter of a pastor and a teacher, she fell in love with storytelling at an early age.
At Florida A&M University, Ester studied journalism and public relations. She quit her desk job at at MTV Networks in New York, to pursue television writing in Los Angeles in 2011.
Ester got her first taste of the writers' room as an assistant on SHOWTIME'S HOUSE OF LIES. In 2015, she co-created two web series that were acquired by BET, SEXLESS and CHEF JULIAN.
This year, Ester Lou was named as the 2016 FOX Writers Intensive Winner. She is currently a staff writer on the FOX series PITCH. Ester's desire as a storyteller is to contribute to the current expansion of blackness in pop culture and to fight for cultural specifics in that storytelling. In her spare time, she moonlights as a "professional plus one" of her more famous friends.
Her favorite things include incense, coconut oil, spicy food, fancy coffee shops and Black Twitter.
