Ellen has developed and been point executive on scripted projects for USA Network shows such as Suits, Covert Affairs, Royal Pains and the new comedy Playing House. Rand majored in journalism at the University of Wisconsin. After college she worked in local news, however the light interest pieces they produced did not satisfy her thirst for hard-hitting content. A friend of a friend of a friend of Ellen’s knew about a Production Assistant position on a TV show and she got her an interview. When she showed up wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase the producers were amused by how dressed up she was for a PA position.
