Dante Russo has worked behind the camera on a number of television shows and feature films including Glee, The Odd Couple, Growing Up Fisher, The New Normal, and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. Most recently, he is the recipient of the 3rd Annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship.
Prior to his career in television, Dante wrote and directed Wiener & Wiener, a web-series about the misadventures of a chronically underachieving hot dog and his endlessly awkward human roommate. He also wrote the musicals City of Silence, Radiant Ruby, and Extraordinary, which won ‘Outstanding Music & Lyrics’ at the 2005 NY International Fringe Festival and was produced at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in New York City.
A native New Yorker now living in Los Angeles, Dante is a graduate of Emerson College and a veteran of The Upright Citizens Brigade. He is a proud member of both Actors' Equity Association and Writers Guild of America.
