Isabel is an experienced children’s screenwriter with a strong background in character comedy writing and performing. She has fulfilled her improbable childhood dreams of working with The Cookie Monster, Dennis the Menace and for Crackerjack!

She can turn her hand to anything from a screwball squash and stretch show to a gentle reflective preschool show, but is always driven by a love of character.

For older age groups she has written for Aardman Animation’s exciting new show Lloyd of the Flies; BLAM-tastic Dennis and Gnasher Unleashed which included a Theatrical Release of one of her episodes; riotously psychedelic The Rubbish World of Dave Spud where she deftly wove environmental and Pride messages seamlessly into the comedy; gloriously zany Best & Bester for Gigglebug; and adorable It’s Pony! for Nickelodeon amongst others.

She wrote prolifically across series 1-5 of live-action CBBC sketch show Class Dismissed creating some of their best-loved characters, with a 2017 BAFTA Best Children’s Comedy Win and a 2019 BAFTA Best Children’s Comedy Nomination.

For preschool she has written for the delightful Magic Light’s Pip and Posy, super spuddy Supertato for CBeebies, Sesame Workshop’s glorious The Furchester Hotel, and for all series of Dreamworks charming Rhyme Time Town amongst others.

She developed a book adaptation to bible for Dreamworks, helped develop two exciting new projects for Snipple Originals and helped Framestore to develop an ambitious virtual reality project from a Warner Bro’s existing property.

A character comedian in a previous life, Isabel wrote and performed a song about online trolling that went hugely viral and discovered she doesn’t like singing. Or adults. Kids rule and she has truly found her audience.
