Kelly Marcel

Kelly Marcel first drew attention with tongue-in-cheek musical Debbie Does Dallas (based on the infamous film), which won acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007. Since then, she has built a reputation as a writer with a light-hearted, irreverent energy who can turn her hand to several genres. It has certainly got her noticed in TV circles: she is working on sci-fi series Terra Nova with writer Craig Silverstein for 20th Century Fox, a pilot script for a dramedy about workers on death row for Showtime, as well as two series for Channel 4. Citing people as her inspiration, stalking as her preferred methodology and attention to detail as her obsession, Marcel is also revving up film projects. She has completed a script about bank robber Valerio Viccei for 4DH Films which James Marsh is in talks to direct, as well as the ecological family adventure Jake And The Tiger for Westwood Productions/Lucasfilm.
