Murder In The First star Kathleen Robertson has been steadily carving out a parallel second career as a writer. In a competitive situation, she has sold to Lionsgate TV the dramedy project Your Time Is Up, which has sought-after actress Christina Applegate attached to star. Written by Robertson and produced by Oscar-nominated producer Gil Netter (Life Of Pi, The Blind Side), Your Time Is Up is described as a family saga in the vein of Six Feet Under centering around complex and unconventional psychologist Imogen Hobbs.
Robertson completed the Writers Guild’s Showrunners Training Program, where she was mentored by former WGA West president John Wells. She went on to write a spec script for John Wells Productions and Warner Horizon, Hollywood Babylon, based on Kenneth Anger’s book.
On screen, Robertson plays the female lead on Stephen Bochco’s crime drama Murder In the First, now in its second season on TNT. She also stars in Lakeshore’s thriller The Vatican Tapes. Robertson is repped by Untitled Entertainment and Paradigm as well as NCA Talent and Play Management in her native Canada.
