A versatile comedy writer, Ed is currently working on three script commissions – a 60-minute ITV drama pilot for exec-producer Andrew Eaton, his third Urban Myths script for Sky Arts, and a feature film for the producers of the one-continuous-take German thriller VICTORIA – all with his sometime collaborator Roger Drew. The first of their Urban Myths, WHEN CARY GRANT INTRODUCED TIMOTHY LEARY TO LSD (2017), starred Ben Chaplin and Aidan Gillen, and was described by the British Comedy Guide as “probably the weirdest and most inventive thing you’ll see on TV this year”. Their second, THE DALI & THE COOPER, stars David Suchet and Noel Fielding, and will be broadcast later this year. Recent work has included a rewrite of SUPERVIZED, a film starring Tom Berenger and Beau Bridges (currently in post-production), and a comedy pilot with DEUTSCHLAND ’83-creator Joerg Winger. Ed’s past credits include DEAD RINGERS, MAN STROKE WOMAN and COMIC RELIEF, and he was also a core writer on five series of hit BBC1 sitcom MY FAMILY, as well as co-writing and script-editing the double BAFTA-winning CBBC series HEDZ. Ed directed a BBC pilot of his first script for television, and his first short film as director was selected for screening at the Oscar-qualifying Atlanta Film Festival. He is also highly regarded for his commercial work on campaigns for a number of high-profile companies, including McLaren and Exxon Mobil.
