Most recognized for her season six run on HBO’s Silicon Valley as the awkward coder Gwart, Nandini Bapat is an accomplished actress and storyteller. When she isn’t appearing as an actress on hit shows like APPLE TV+’s MYTHIC QUEST and NBC’s Good Girls, Nandini Bapat writes one-hour television genre dramas. She most recently staffed as a junior writer on an interactive video game project, focused on narrative gameplay, where she adapted a popular comic book IP. She’s won two Quarterfinalist awards through Final Draft’s Big Break Contest and another in WeScreenplay’s Diverse Voices program.
She is a queer, first-generation Indian-American creator who spent her childhood with her grandmother, watching Diagnosis Murder and listening to her fantastical bedtime stories about legendary heroes. Having grown up on a steady diet of both procedural television and Indian mythology, is it any wonder that Nandini writes monster-of-the-week supernatural TV dramas?
As the daughter of immigrant parents, practicality and security were the breakfast foods of her youth. But after getting a BS in Animal Science at UC Davis and spending four years sticking her arm elbow-deep in a bull’s butt, she realized that science wasn’t the beast she wanted to slay. She ventured into education, earning her Masters at the University of La Verne, but it took a student literally throwing a rock at her head to point out that maybe being a high school teacher wasn’t for her.
Nandini’s path to Hollywood began when she took an unpaid, overnight background gig. That evening, hopped up on high fructose corn syrup, watching the whirring strobe lights illuminate a music video set, she fell in love. Embracing the unconventional coming-of-age character arc she loves to write, Nandini set herself on a new path to the future. Her brand is telling stories about unconventional misfits finding their Excalibur.
