In addition to their script writing, Hickey & McCoy have a reputation as top series troubleshooters and feature-film “script doctors”. They have “doctored” over 10 feature scripts and series developments in the last 2 years including the features Bayala: A Magical Adventure (Germany), Terracotta Warriors (China), The Dragon Spell (Ukraine), and My Toy Panda (Russia).

Hickey & McCoy have earned 5 Emmy nominations (one win), 4 BAFTA nominations (3 wins), and 2 PULCINELLA AWARDS including one for Best Series (Cosmic Quantum Ray).
