Ryan J Brown Screenwriter

Ryan J. Brown is the creator and writer of WRECKED, an original series currently being made for the BBC. He is developing three more original dramas for the BBC and has a further 10 original TV projects in development with companies including DNA, KUDOS, EUSTON FILMS, BIG TALK and BABY COW. He is currently writing an episode of Netflix fantasy series HALF BAD produced by Andy Serkis' IMAGINARIUM.


In 2018, Brown was named a ‘Talent to Watch’ by the RTS and Gay Times Magazine.


Brown won the BAFTA Rocliffe award in 2017 for his pilot WE ARE YOUR CHILDREN and was named an “exciting new talent” by Idris Elba. The script was also selected for the first-ever TV Brit List (UK’s Black List). The series has since contributed to the reopening of a decades-old cold case and is the inspiration for an upcoming SONY podcast with the San Francisco Chronicle.


In 2019, Brown was again featured on the UK TV Brit List (the only writer to have been on the list twice), this time with his BIG TALK developed pilot ONLY CHILD.


Ryan is repped by INDEPENDENT TALENT in the UK.
