Virtual Panelist
Gennifer Hutchison grew up an Air Force brat, moving with her family every few years. A lifelong film and television fan, Hutchison moved to Los Angeles shortly after graduating from The University of San Francisco. She landed a PA job on The X-Files, later moving her way up to an assistant position. From there, Hutchison worked as a writers’ and producer’s assistant on several shows, including Star Trek: Enterprise, Grey’s Anatomy and Mad Men.

Hutchison later reunited with fellow The X-Files alum Vince Gilligan to join his fledgling series, Breaking Bad, as the writers’ assistant. Hutchison was assigned a freelance episode in Season 3, “I See You,” which garnered her a WGA nomination. She was promoted to staff writer and remained with the acclaimed series until the finale, rising to the rank of executive story editor. Along the way, she earned six more WGA nominations, winning three consecutive times alongside her Breaking Bad colleagues for Best Dramatic Series and once for Outstanding Episodic Drama for her final Breaking Bad episode, “Confessions.”

Hutchison served as a producer on the first season of FX’s The Strain before reuniting with her Breaking Bad colleagues on Better Call Saul. She was a Co-EP and Executive Producer for four seasons and, along with her colleagues, earned multiple award nominations, including four Primetime Emmy Award nominations for best Drama Series.

A genre fan at heart, Hutchison is currently an Executive Producer on Amazon Prime’s new The Lord of the Rings series.
