Friedman has acted as writer and producer on a range of top titles. She co-wrote the pilot for Orange Is The New Black with Jenji Kohan and served as executive producer on Marvel’s Jessica Jones. She was also the writer and senior producer of Elementary.
Most recently, Friedman co-created the ABC drama Conviction.
In her new role, Friedman will serve as executive producer on Sony-produced drama series The Good Doctor. She will also develop original series for the studio.
Friedman said: “I’m thrilled to be in working with Sony, especially since it means climbing back into trenches with David Shore on The Good Doctor. Great show, great showrunner, great opportunity to once again use sarcoidosis in conversation.”
