Jenny Lumet is known for authoring the award-winning screenplay (and TueNight fave flick) Rachel Getting Married. She’s also the daughter of famed director Sidney Lumet and granddaughter of the incomparable singer/ actress Lena Horne. When we contacted her she told us she’s “literally waiting to hear if my pilot is picked up” — a procedural based around a hate crimes unit. Nevertheless, she was happy to answer our TueNight 10 writing back, “Thanks! This was fun!” (To share your own with us – sign up here).
