Holly Huckins is currently working for Amazon Studios, where she is executive producing and developing new series for children. More recently, Huckins was EP and show runner of the Disney Junior animated series Sheriff Callie's Wild West. The series, which she also developed, stars Mandy Moore and has received both Emmy and Annie Award nominations. Previous to this, Holly co-created and served as co-executive producer on Playhouse Disney's Higglytown Heroes.
Huckins began her career in New York City as an experimental filmmaker, but an opportunity to work for Martin Scorsese quickly convinced her that her true calling was entertainment. She worked her way up in the industry, working primarily in feature films as an editor and writer, and broke into animation when she was invited to join the writing staff of Rugrats. In 1996, she went on to serve as story editor on Disney's Recess, leaving the series in 1999 to become the show runner on Angela Anaconda for the Fox Family Channel. Since then, she has written for numerous children’s television shows in the United States, Canada, Great Britain and France, including work for all the major US broadcasters. Some of her favorite credits include Skunk Fu, Totally Spies, Jungle Junction, Curious George, Olivia! and Land Before Time. Four-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee, Huckins has also been a member of Oscar winning sound editing teams, and has herself been nominated for the MPSE Golden Reel award.
She resides in Los Angeles with her husband, and has a grown daughter now living in Brooklyn.
