Shelly Goldstein is a writer/performer/rock-’n-roll historian, who has written for every genre of TV, film and stage. Her one-woman shows have played to sell-out crowds throughout the U.S. and U.K. She and Brendan Foley recently completed the pilot Dr. Feelgood for Denmark’s Monday Productions and TV 3. They also co-created the children’s animated series Shelldon that ran on NBC from 2009-2012 and still airs in 40 countries around the world. Their pop-music animated series Flying With Byrd currently airs in Asia.
She has written sitcoms, dramas, lyrics, documentaries, animation, award shows, jokes and special material for such performers as Steve Martin, Sharon Stone, Justin Timberlake, Jane Fonda, Jimmy Fallon, Garry Marshall, Sean Penn, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the cast of Glee and Yoko Ono.
Her first play, Coming Attractions, ran in Chicago for more than two years and had a two-month run in Los Angeles. She wrote the book for the disco musical, Last Dance, which workshopped on Broadway, and directed the hit comedy The Paul & Vic Show in L.A. and Chicago.
Shelly is a proud, self-proclaimed Beatles nerd who has hosted radio shows about the Fab Four in the U.S. and England and has been invited to lecture about their influence on music and culture throughout the U.S. She recently ghost-wrote a story about Paul McCartney & Wings’ 1971 University Tour of the U.K., about which Sir Paul said, “Yeah, this was great! You really got it right!” In 1995, she wrote and produced Intimate Portrait: Yoko Ono for Lifetime. In 2003, she wrote a tribute to George Harrison, hosted by his wife Olivia, for UNICEF.
