“My first script❤️During Covid, the production I was working on (Handmaid’s Tale) got shut down. At the same time, my dad (who is a doctor) had all his elective surgeries cancelled,” she wrote on Instagram.

“We were both used to being so busy, so we really didn’t know what to do with ourselves. We did end up playing a lot of video games😂That got old fast! After a while, I started getting stir crazy and really sad not having a creative outlet.”

“I started writing like crazy! Both scripts and music. My dad loves writing too, so we listened to a ton of heavy metal music, ate entirely too much junk food and started writing scripts. The sequel to the Bad Seed is one of the great things that came out of my time in quarantine. I am so excited that Lifetime loved our script and wanted to partner with us on it. This one is so special to me because my Dad and I wrote it together❤️🙂”

Mckenna will next be seen on the big screen in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which is out THIS Friday (November 19).

She also has a movie in the works with Disney+!
