Andrew Breitbart on Patrick Courrielche
Patrick Courrielche is a writer, former applied physicist and marketer, and long-time Hollywood correspondent for Breitbart News covering the intersection between culture & politics. His writings have tanked a potential blockbuster film, forced the resignation of an Obama appointee, led to the creation of new White House-issued ethics guidelines, revealed an Obama initiative to influence scripted TV content, and killed the largest music “piracy” website in the world. Courrielche has also been published by The Wall Street Journal, SiriusXM, DailyCaller.com, FoxNews.com, Reason, & Digital Music News. The late Andrew Breitbart sponsored him for a Pulitzer for a series of op-eds on Obama’s politicization of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Adryana Cortez is a writer, short-film producer, and has been a contributor to Breitbart News. She was an award show finalist, barely losing out to some fly-by-night named Martin Scorsese (sp?). She co-produced the light-hearted story of Tonight Show drummer Questlove’s pursuit of his first driver’s license. She is also an artist/illustrator, a jingle writer/singer with imperfect pitch, and is 5’ 1”...but identifies tall.
The husband and wife creative duo designed, developed and launched a long-form journalism platform for Breitbart News with the publication of Tinseltown Travelogue – a three-part exposé exploring Hollywood’s institutionalized bigotry. The series was also broadcast by SiriusXM Patriot as a two-hour special. Together, they also created, produced, and co-wrote a widely heralded web series starring comedians Sarah Silverman, Tracy Morgan, Andy Samberg, & Jamie Kennedy. The semi-scripted global warming debate series “The Darker Side of Green” garnered press accolades from Variety, NY Times, and The WSJ.
Courrielche graduated from UCLA with a Master of Science in applied physics. Cortez graduated from CSULB with a Bachelor of the Arts in Apparel Design & Merchandising. Together they reside in the Greater Los Angeles Area with their daughter, two rarely bathed dogs, and adopted stray cat.
