Ed Cripps

Screenwriter, journalist and story consultant.

Hello, and thanks for having a butcher's. I'm Ed, a screenwriter, journalist and story consultant. 

My TV CV includes EpisodesFresh Meat and Made in Chelsea, my first series of which won a BAFTA. Right now I'm working on Jesse Armstrong's HBO drama Succession.

Last year with Will Hitchins, I wrote and directed TEDDY2K, a short film about a disenchanted YouTuber starring David Elms and Liam Williams. It was selected for the London Short Film Festival 2017 and you can watch it here.

I'm also developing several scripted comedy and drama projects, many with my writing partner Ivo Graham. This sketch gives you a flavour.

My piece on The South Bank Show's interview with Paul Greengrass came second in The Observer's Anthony Burgess Prize for Arts Journalism. Read more of my work for The Times Literary Supplement, MR PORTER, The Rake, Little White Lies and The Huffington Post here.

My agent is the brilliant Olivia Gray at Independent. So, if you fancy a bit of writing, do get in touch!

(NB: Careful not to confuse me with the other Ed Cripps who works at BAFTA. He's a talented chap and his website is here. Always make sure you've got the right Ed Cripps).

(Final NB: I can't work out how to upload my own photo for the background on this page, so I've gone for "misty lake").
