One of the writers of Pixar’s critical and commercial smash hit INSIDE OUT, Meg is also the writer of the animation giant’s Thanksgiving release THE GOOD DINOSAUR. She has an assignment to pen Captain Marvel (Marvel’s first female-driven feature) with Nicole Perlman, as well as a live action Disney film to star Tina Fey.
LeFauve began her film career as a producer and President of Egg Pictures, Jodie Foster’s production company. At Egg, LeFauve produced The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, the coming-of-age film by Peter Care (IFP Award for Best First Feature) that starred Emile Hirsch, Kieran Culkin, Vincent D’Onofrio and Foster. She also shared a Peabody Award for producing Jane Anderson’s adoption drama “The Baby Dance” (Showtime) starring Laura Dern and Stockard Channing. In addition to the Peabody, “The Baby Dance” garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Made for TV Movie and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
LeFauve decided to switch gears and pursue writing. At the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, she worked with director John Morgan on The Cavanaughs, an indie about an Evangelical teen who vows to become a preacher when his mother leaves the family for another woman. She wrote a remake of the Irish comedy Wild About Harry for Warner Brothers. It follows a sleazy TV chef who is about to lose his family, but after being mugged, he wakes up in the hospital believing he is still 18. He sets out to repair his ravaged life and win back his family.
LeFauve is also working on “Girl in a Box,” an original hour-long drama that centers on two women: Jane, who was kidnapped and brainwashed to be the wife of her kidnapper, and Dara, the cousin who lost Jane 15 years ago but now believes she’s found her.
LeFauve has mentored at the Sundance Creative Producer Lab and is a Board Member and returning participant at CineStory Script Sessions. She is currently a consultant to Screen New South Wales, Screen Australia, and Film Victoria. During her tenure at Egg, LeFauve served as co-chair of the Graduate Producers Program at UCLA’s School of Film and Television and taught master level story and development classes.
Raised in Warren, OH, LeFauve attended Syracuse University and worked as an account executive at the advertising agency Scali, McCabe and Sloves before her first entertainment industry position with ICM agent Martha Luttrell. She currently lives in Studio City, CA, with her husband and two children.
