Tom Romita

Writer. Director. Frustrated Human.

Tom has been successfully (not) writing “unscripted” television shows for almost twenty years.  From the romantic comedy of “Blind Date” and “Matched in Manhattan,” to the family drama of “Wife Swap” and “Shalom in the Home,” to the workplace shenanigans of “Counting Cars” and “New York Ink,” Tom has crafted stories to the delight of millions of viewers over the years.  He’s reached a level of success that has allowed him to live in the city he loves, New York, and secure a wife and daughter so beautiful, people think he’s adopted.  But now, he’s doing it the right way. He’s writing stuff down. Right here. Please enjoy his website, and feel free to share, Tweet or contact Tom directly to say hi, exchange ideas, or introduce him to really rich people who might want to produce his movies.

Tom is very excited to announce three literary projects he currently has in the works.  


The "GRUMPY DAD" children's book series is currently being developed, and we are thrilled to announce that the first one , "Grumpy Dad Shovels Snow" will be available on Amazon this Christmas '17!

 "MAKING CONTACT" is the story of a son's search for his father, and America's pastime, Baseball.  William Dobbs  has only one thing to remember his biological father by, a picture of him wearing a New York Yankees hat. When Will learns at nine years old that his father did not die in a car accident eight years ago as he had always thought, he tries to make contact with him the only possible way he can think of, by becoming a New York Yankee. He succeeds. But an unexpected curveball throws Will's search, his entire life, and the game of baseball itself, into turmoil.  Will's quest to find his father becomes bigger and more harrowing than he ever imagined as he struggles to fix the damage done to him, and that which he has done to others.


 "CITIZEN SHANE" is a rare literary  combination of humor and  political philosophy, all rolled into the compelling story of a Brooklyn hipster trying to make it big in the world of artisan salad dressing.  "Citizen Shane"  is a daring attempt to educate and entertain, that will most certainly infuriate.  Those who make it  to the end without  burning or throwing it against a wall will undoubtedly have a reading  experience unlike any they've ever had  before.
