Hannah and Flossie are a new writing team. Friends since primary school, they have shared flats and adventures as each built their careers as an actor and journalist respectively. They are now developing an original TV show, CLICK HERE TO SCREAM, partially inspired by their own experiences in their 20s.

Hannah and Flossie love stories that lean into comedy and outrageousness while intelligently critiquing society and culture at the same time. They are particularly keen to write about womanhood, queerness, identity, sex, relationships, and the universally bewildering experience of figuring out life as young-but-ageing adults in the modern world. They are inspired by series like Girls, Big Mood, Feel Good, This Way Up, Such Brave Girls, Alma’s Not Normal, and The End Of The F***ing World. They are fierce and funny writers with a real spark, looking for opportunities on existing shows and in writers rooms as well as developing their own work.

Hannah van der Westhuysen
(they/them) trained as an actor at the Drama Centre and has built an extensive career on stage and screen. They have led shows for NETFLIX, “Fate: The Winx Saga” (2023), and appeared in projects such as “Sexy Beast” (Paramount+, 2024) and “Sandman” (Netflix, 2023). Their stage work, most recently with Paines Plough on “Salty Irina” (2023), primarily focuses on new writing. They have co-produced their first short film, “Best Dressed,” and have worked as a researcher and developer for the Arcola Theatre. They have also written and presented two series of The Fboy Podcast, an original comedy podcast exploring terrible blokes in history and pop culture.

Flossie Skelton (she/her) began her career as a production assistant in the film and television industry for companies including BBC, Ridley Scott Associates and Maverick Films before moving into writing. As a journalist, she’s been covering the intersections of art, culture, sex and womanhood for the likes of Dazed, i-D, AnOther, and Refinery29. She was a commissioning editor at British Journal of Photography, one of the world’s oldest and most influential visual arts publications, and senior editor of sex content for the world’s #1 health and sex app, Flo. As a cultural critic, she’s been invited to speak at events including Belfast Photo Festival, where she delivered the headline talk on the “female gaze,” and to pen a culture column for ITV platform Woo.

Hannah and Flossie have both studied screenwriting at City Lit.
