Chris Galletta is a screenwriter whose debut film The Kings Of Summer hit theaters in 2013, and will premier on Showtime Saturday, August 2 at 9 p.m. and be available on Showtime On Demand immediately after. The film is available via iTunes and Amazon.
Chris grew up in Staten Island, attended St. John’s undergrad and Columbia University film school. Post-college, Chris worked at The Late Show with David Letterman as the Music Assistant, and as a freelance monologue writer, before selling his first script.
