She would go on to be one of the major architects of the show serving as co-executive producer, writer and director until its series finale this past summer. She would also serve as a writer on Murphy’s first Netflix series, Hollywood. 

She is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content. Banks and Handelman and Brownstone Productions are represented by UTA, Untitled Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham.
