Wasserman also served as Co-Producer on the documentary film At the Top of My Voice (2008) and was contracted to adapt non-fiction novel Ship Ablaze for the screen, the true story of a 1904 steamship disaster that was New York’s largest tragedy prior to 9/11. Wasserman has written four feature-length original screenplays, including police thriller The Blue Wall, a quarter-finalist in the 2009 Page Screenwriting Awards; Safehouse, a finalist in the 2009 Slamdance Feature Screenplay Competition; and Stowaways, a prize-winning Top Ten Finalist in the 2010 Silver Screenwriting Competition.
