We would love to be able to make a series that calls out society for it's bad habits and create a positive influence by making people think twice about their actions; using comedy as our weapon. Wouldn't it be great to feel validated when you see us taking care of a pet peeve you can relate to?

Mission Statement

Everyone has a pet peeve; race, sexuality, ability, gender aside. Respect to all of our fellow human beings, no matter personal beliefs should be a given. We realized people are so caught up in their own world, that they neglect to see how their actions affect other people. We aim to change that.

The Story

When two women are fed up with the inconsiderate people of this world, they decide to take matters into their own hands and become vigilantes in the process. 


#RiddingThe WorldofInconsiderateDouchesOnePetPeeveAtATime


Don't you just hate it when people don't consider their actions? We do too! The idea for The Pet Peeve Police came one day to Sarah when she was fed up with having to deal with numerous inconsiderate people. She then called Melissa and said I think I have a great idea for a series and we should do it together. Melissa was all "Hell yeah! Let's call these douches out!"

The Pet Peeve Police were born! 



In addition to each episode featuring a hilarious and relatable pet peeve, the episode will also feature pop culture references and homages to famous films/TV. We are stoked to be able to involve and interact with our audience on social media when they discover the references.



  We have already shot and completed the first episode of the series, and have 7 more episodes we need to shoot and edit to complete season one. With your help our Pet Peeve Police dreams can become a reality!

Biggest Pet Peeve- People giving unsolicited advice. 



Melissa Graver is the co-creator, co-writer and co-lead of The Pet Peeve Police. Melissa's interest in acting started at a young age, although it wasn't in front of the camera, it was behind the scenes helping in school productions; at the time she was too shy to be on stage. In high school she joined PACE (a performing arts program), but acting was still more of a hobby. It wasn't until seeing Spring Awakening on Broadway and being so deeply moved by the talent, that she realized she wanted to pursue acting professionally; which prompted Melissa to take her first acting class and the rest is history.


After graduating college with a degree in Psychology and a Theater minor from the University of New Hampshire, she got accepted to the prestigious William Esper Studio in NYC where she completed a Two-year Meisner program in acting. She's also studied improv at Upright Citizen's Brigade and The Groundlings.


Melissa got her first role in the indie film, The Winning Season, joined SAG, and moved to LA where she's been doing commercials, TV, film, theater, voice-overs, and web-series galore ever since.


Melissa's love of acting naturally transitioned to a love of writing and filmmaking. She wrote, produced, and acted in her first short film, Code Name: Tuffin that got accepted to festivals AND coincientally was her first team-up with Sarah. You can also see Melissa in the comedy feature, Why Him opposite Bryan Cranston and Megan Mullally and most recently she's once again lent her voice to Earbud Theater's ( After The Haunting.

Biggest Pet Peeve- People driving slow in the left lane.



Sabrina Cooper was born and raised on a tiny reservation in the middle of Louisiana, Sabrina, is a true southern girl at heart!  At the age of 13, she became a professional dancer which continued through her high school years. Being from an area, which is below poverty level, she knew that college was not an option for her, so the year after she graduated high school she opened her first dance studio at the age of 19.  In the end, she didn't let her hardships stand her in her. Sabrina not only enrolled herself into Full Sail University, but was also accepted and attended AFI's producing fellowship program. 


We should mention here that Sabrina was born without a left hand. She would be the first Native American “handicapped” woman producer in Hollywood!  She is a unicorn in the bright lights of Los Angeles!  She currently owns her own production company called Black Castle Productions where she develops feature films and TV shows.

Biggest Pet Peeve- When people are late.
