Jake Helgren graduated from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas with a bachelor’s in Creative Writing, and his career began shortly after when Frivolity,a teen comedy feature he wrote his senior year of college, won First Place Comedy at Filmmakers International out of over 1,300+ entries in 2007. The following spring Helgren moved to LA to pursue the industry full-time, and two short years later, his first low-budget romcom Finding Mr. Wright (2010) was produced and accepted into PhillyQFest, where it was coined “the screwball comedies of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant are given a 21st-century queer bent.”  Helgren went on to write teen horror titles Bloody Homecoming (2011)and Varsity Blood (2013), both released by Image/RLJ Entertainment and the latter of which marked Helgren’s directorial debut. Helgren then went on to write A Belle For Christmas (2014)starring Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson and Haylie Duff, which was acquired and distributed all over the world by STARZ/Anchor Bay.  Helgren has since been written, produced and directed several films for TV, eleven of which were for Lifetime Network including the hit thrillers The Good NannyDeadly MatrimonyBabysitter’s NightmareThe Perfect MotherPsycho Stripper, as well as 2018’s highest rated holiday acquisition, A Christmas Arrangement.  Helgren has also written, produced and directed several other romances, including UPtv’s Girlfriends of Christmas Past, Winter Wedding,Bridal Boot Camp, and It Happened One Valentine’s.  Helgren’s work can next be seen on the Hallmark Channel with 2019’s holiday romance A Merry Christmas Match, and he has multiple new projects in the pipeline.
