The Mighty B! Wiki

Jessica Gao (pronounced Gow) is an American writer. Growing up as a "superfan" of cartoons, she went to college and studied art.[1]

Years after graduation, she entered the world of screenwriting, working on children's shows.[1] On The Mighty B!, Gao penned thirty-five episodes, writing more episodes than anyone else. She also wrote Mighty B-themed stories for Nickelodeon Magazine.[2]

Since then, Gao has focused on more adult fare such as Silicon Valley and Rick and Morty.[3] Gao is currently working on her own series for ABC,[4] in addition to writing the Disney+ exclusive She-Hulk.[5]
