Adam Drew is a new writer developing a diverse slate for TV and film – ranging from true story adaptations from neglected chapters of history, to surreal sitcoms with songs.
He started screenwriting after being awarded a bursary at the Screen Arts Institute, at BFI Southbank. His first feature script made the quarterfinals of the Nicholl Fellowship, the screenplay competition run by the Oscars.
Meanwhile, he writes for and performs in musical-comedy duo Bounder & Cad, several times commissioned to write for BBC Radio – and one of his pieces for BBC Radio 4 Extra was chosen for the Comedy Club’s Pick of the Year.
As an actor, he has appeared on TV in episode-lead roles, as Spitfire ace George Beurling in Heroes of the Skies, and as Emperor Nero in Eight Days That Made Rome.
