ABOUT US

Comedy Writers

Friends for over 10 years, Samantha and Teresa have been writing together since 2014. They bonded over their similar backgrounds, both the daughters of a Builder and Hairdresser, respectively!

 

They share a passion for bringing much-unheard working-class stories to the screen and championing feminist issues through both female and male protagonists. They love to laugh and bring authenticity and a fresh, youthful sense of humour to their scripts.

 

Recent credits include comedy pilots Curveball  produced by Colour TV London and The Bridesmaid’s Diaries  directed by Miranda Howard Williams. Teresa’debut short film The Backseat  was nominated for the IMDb Script to Screen Award and won the IdeasTap Short Film Award and Neil’s Yard directed by Matt Holt, has been selected for the BAFTA qualifying, Aesthetica Film Festival 2019 and won the 2019 Funny Women Award.
