Tess Morris

writer Man Up

Born and bred Londoner, Tess has been writing since she could walk (not 100% true) and her first words were ‘Elvis is the King!’ (100% true). Her first screenplay, the romantic comedy MAN UP, made the 2011 Brit List, was picked up by Big Talk Pictures, co-produced by Studio Canal and BBC Films and released in 2015 directed by Ben Palmer and starring Simon Pegg and Lake Bell. Tess is currently writing original screenplay TEXTBOOK BEHAVIOUR for Big Talk/BBC Films, and co-writing original comedy drama DEAD TO ME, for NBC/Lucky Giant, with David Allison. She has done numerous rewrites on both sides of the pond, and began her career in the UK, writing soap opera and sitcom. Last year she was named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit. She currently resides in LA.
