Haely White is a SCREENWRITER, DIRECTOR & ACTRESS passionate about telling female-driven stories FOR CHANGE.
Haely is a proud multi-hyphenate writer-actress-director (10 Million views and counting), with a hit series on Parents, FabFitFun, Mom.me and viral content all over the damn internet. But it wasn’t always that way.
After reaching the pinnacle of acting fulfillment with one liners in questionable clothing, Haely announced she was quitting acting. On a mission to create her own content, Haely began writing with her then-roommate, Megan Dizon, and when their YouTube shorts started gaining views and features on Hello Giggles and Funny or Die; they realized they were onto something.
Haely and Megan co-created the hit web series, DATED, named Largo Film Award’s Best Comedy, and hailed as "better than TV”. The show is now being pitched for linear TV.
After having a baby and realizing she probably needed therapy, Haely realized writing comedy was likely cheaper. Thus in 2018, she launched Don’t Call Me Mommy, with fellow mama, producer, + content creator Samantha Gutstadt.
Combining Sam and Haely’s seasoned backgrounds in advertising, sketch comedy, video production, editorial and social media— Don’t Call Me Mommy produces scripted content and oversees production from concept through to final edit and social promotion.
Their hit digital series about mom life, Sh*t No One Told You, garnered over 5MM views on Mom.me and was featured on Parents.com. From there, the duo created the first scripted series on FabFitFun, on Parents, and successful branded campaigns for Lansinoh (1MM views) and beyond.
NEWS: Coming in June 2019, Don’t Call Me Mommy will be launching their own talk show. More coming soon!
Haely’s passionate about community building and keeping sh*t real about mom life. She loves to host events (Happy Mom Conference, Celebrity RedCARpet with Ali Landry and Saarah Samadani, LA Baby Show) and Don’t Call Me Mommy’s first event: Sh*t No One Told You Live: Postpartum on the Real with Savoir Collab. When Haely’s not working, she stays busy trying to get her toddler to pee pee in the potty. SEND HELP.
