Jessica Lambert

Writer

Jessica Lambert is an exciting new writer with a passion for unashamedly entertaining, female-led TV series. A winner of the 2018 BAFTA Rocliffe showcase, she has a deep love of teen dramas, fantasy and fast-talking, witty dialogue.

She is currently pitching SOMETHING WICKED (Studio Lambert) a Shakespearean teen murder mystery set in an English boarding school; APHRA (Origin Pictures) a 17th century political thriller; and HELWYR (Origin Pictures), a YA folk horror series set in the Scottish Highlands.

She is also working on SECRET LIVES, a contemporary thriller created by and starring Archie Panjabi.

Her first script, DIARY GIRLS, was based on her previous life writing for the London’s Evening Standard, where she spent three years reporting on the capital’s celebrity-driven party scene. She has since worked with Clerkenwell, Playground, BBC Studios, Wild Mercury and Idris Elba’s Green Door.

She is represented in the UK by Sarah Williams (Independent Talent) and in the US by Ted Miller (CAA)
