A versatile comedy and drama writer, Ed is currently an executive producer and co-writer of MIKE MYERS’ first series for Netflix, THE PENTAVERATE. Other recent work includes three episodes of the hit drama series DEUTSCHLAND ’89 and a feature film commission for the producers of the one-continuous-take German thriller VICTORIA – all with his sometime collaborator Roger Drew. They have also had two Urban Myths made for Sky Arts. The first, 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 (2018), starred David Suchet and Noel Fielding. Previous work includes a 60-minute drama pilot for exec-producer Andrew Eaton and a rewrite of SUPERVIZED, a film starring Tom Berenger and Beau Bridges. In terms of solo work, Ed has recently sold a comedy pilot to Hartswood, and his past credits include DEAD RINGERS, MAN STROKE WOMAN and COMIC RELIEF. He was 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.
