After completing his Master of Arts in English from George Mason University, Henry “Hank” Jones headed to Los Angeles to pursue his passion in scriptwriting. To get started, he worked on any indie project he could find until he was recommended for an assistant position on BET’s The Game.  Over the next few years, Mr. Jones hustled as an assistant on ABC’s `blackish, BET’s The New Edition Story, and Dear White People on Netflix.  Mr. Jones went on to write eight episodes of the Netflix animated show Motown Magic, and two episodes of Family Reunion.  He has since worked on shows airing on CBS, Freeform, Apple TV, Peacock and is currently a Supervising Producer on ABC’s Will Trent as he develops shows he sold to Amazon and FX.

Mr. Jones is the co-creator of the Black Male Writers Meetup in Los Angeles - an event to bring Black male writers together to discuss industry practices, and seek guidance from veteran writers. He also served as a counselor for Awaken Arts where he taught creative writing to teens at an alternative-learning bootcamp that allowed them to earn their GEDs.
