Lucy’s background is in TV production, where she worked in development and as a script editor. Now she’s a writer, she wishes she’d been nicer to them when she had the chance.
Lucy has written extensively for live action and animation. Her live action credits include Hank Zipzer (Kindle/CBBC), So Awkward (Series 2 to 6), Still So Awkward (Channel X/CBBC), Goldies Oldies (Nickelodeon), The Athena (Bryncoed/Sky) and Theodosia (Cottonwood/HBOMax). And in animation, Lucy’s written for series including Danger Mouse (CBBC), Shaun the Sheep and Scream Street.
In adult comedy, Lucy provided additional material for The Kennedys (BBC 1) and for three fast turn around political comedies, Ballot Monkeys (C4), Power Monkeys (C4) and Election Spy (BBC 2). Her original screenplay Mr Hollywood is with Komixx, comedy idea Nothing to Declare is optioned to Genial and Backbone was commissioned to second script by BritBox.
Lucy’s writing has been nominated for Best Comedy in the RTS North West Awards and twice for Best Comedy at the BAFTA Children’s Awards.
Lucy is currently writing Riddleswick for CBBC/Channel X, which she co-created with Julia Kent and Mark Oswin.
Lucy also occasionally sells her soul to advertising, co-writing Nike’s 2014 World Cup advert and producing some truly ground breaking work for the PG Tips monkey.
