Polly Kreisman-In the face of a pandemic and subsequent strike, Polly Kreisman sought a creative refuge during a hiatus from acting. The result was the co-creation of "Drama Queens," a TV pilot crafted over the summer with two colleagues. This comedic masterpiece, derived from an autobiographical short story, unfolds the tale of three actresses grappling with the hurdles of aging in an industry notorious for sidelining them.
Polly, a former Emmy Award-winning Investigative Reporter on NYC TV, seamlessly transitions between roles as an actor, reporter, and writer—each a testament to her innate storytelling prowess. Her recent collaboration with Malissa has yielded impressive results, including a booking in a compelling short film, a role on HBO's "The Girls on the Bus," and a supporting role in the Netflix production, "Mr. Harrigan’s Phone."
Despite her thriving acting career, Polly maintains a connection to journalism, overseeing one of the oldest community news sites in the country, larchmontloop.com, and contributing as a writer for Westchester Magazine. A New York City native and Cornell University graduate, Polly, now playing the role of a mom to college twins and two dogs, remains grounded in her diverse interests. From riding horses (English style) to indulging in Barre classes, and hiking trails worldwide, Polly embodies a life rich in experiences both on and off the screen.
