ELAINE DEL VALLE first garnered critical acclaim as an actress and writer with her autobiographical, one-woman stage play "Brownsville Bred", which depicts her true Nuyorican (New York-Puerto Rican) coming-of-age in Brownsville Brooklyn, NY. While off Broadway, the New York Times raved, "From Girlhood Trials to Onstage Triumph."
Elaine subsequently adapted her story into a novel, and was awarded "Most Inspirational Young Adult Book" by the International Latino Book Awards. Elaine is in pre-production set to direct "Brownsville Bred" as a feature film Summer 2021--supported by the Warner Media 150 program and a grant from the Sundance Institute.
As a director, her short films, "Me 3.769" (2019) and "Princess Cut" (2020) can be seen on HBO.
In 2020, Elaine landed a development deal with CBS for her original one-hour drama pilot. Written by Elaine, in "The System", a compassionate yet jaded social worker navigates the same broken New York City system she grew up in as she advocates to resolve issues for every family she encounters while struggling to fix her own.
