Wei Ling Chang is a New York-brewed, Los Angeles-based swim addict, sleep enthusiast, kung-fu master-in-training, and writer/director. Her feature directorial debut, "The Unlikely Girl," was acquired by Netflix for worldwide distribution. She is a fellow of Sundance Episodic Story Lab, Screenwriter's Colony Episodic Drama, and Ryan Murphy’s Half Initiative Directing Program. She’s worked in mini-rooms led by Veena Sud and Jessica Mecklenburg, and has been mentored by Graham Yost, Marti Noxon, and Corinne Brinkerhoff.

Previously, she shadowed on Netflix's "Hollywood" and the Showtime series “The Affair," and was hired to write the action thriller screenplay “Iron Mom” for Escape Artists (“The Upside,” “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”). Before going narrative, she produced, wrote, and directed unscripted TV shows, including “The First 48,” “My Super Sweet Sixteen,” “Made,” “The Detonators,” and prison show “Max ER.”

She holds a psychology BA from Cornell University and is a proud member of the Auntie Sewing Squad, a team of WOC volunteers formed during the pandemic to address mask shortages in underserved communities. To date, she has produced one genetically perfect human girl and is quitting while she's ahead.
