Cory Miller is a writer/director living in Los Angeles. Prior to moving to LA, Cory spent four years in New York City investigating complaints against the NYPD for the New York City government. Part private investigator, part lawyer, this job took Cory all over the city and exposed him to countless stories involving corruption, excessive force, police shootings, and the best and worst of the NYPD and New York's citizens.
After leaving this job, Cory earned an MFA from UCLA in film production and screenwriting. His UCLA thesis film, ALLEN MACK (a RASHOMON-esque look at a fatal police shooting), was named Best Screenplay & Best Narrative Film at the UCLA Festival of New Creative Work. ALLEN MACK was distributed by Xfinity/Comcast and won the New York Festivals Silver Medal for short film.
Cory’s feature script CITY ON FIRE focuses on the incendiary true story of the escalating conflict between the City of Philadelphia and the revolutionary group MOVE, culminating in the Philadelphia Police Department dropping a bomb onto MOVE’s rooftop, killing 11 people and destroying two city blocks.
CITY ON FIRE was chosen to participate in the 2017 Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab.
Cory’s feature script LINE OF DUTY – a modern retelling of Macbeth – was featured on the 2013 Black List of the best unproduced screenplays.
