Michelle Mower is an award-winning screenwriter and director who has produced feature films, made-for-television movies, docu-series and commercials for television networks like Lifetime/A&E and streaming platforms, including Amazon and Apple+.

Born in the small, East Texas town of Palestine to a Southern Baptist minister and a stay-at-home mom, Mower’s films often focus on female protagonists fighting to break free from societal, religious and/or parental expectations. Her debut feature film THE PREACHER’S DAUGHTER, about a minister’s daughter who has an affair with the music minister of her father’s church, was picked up by Lifetime/A&E where it garnered the highest rating of an original movie on LMN in 2012. This success lead to Mower writing and directing four more movies for Lifetime, most recently WHAT HAPPENED TO MY SISTER? (2022).

Mower’s independent feature THE NEVER LIST, about an overachieving teenage girl who’s perfectly planned academic life is derailed after the death of her best friend, was accepted into the AMC Indie program and was released in 112 movie theaters across the U.S. in December, 2020. Mower strives to tell bold, female-driven stories that are visually compelling and emotionally impactful. www.michellemower.com
