Biography

Damon's recent projects include Everyone Quite Likes Justin with Justin Moorhouse for BBC Comedy, Puppy Love, with Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine and an original drama with Mainstreet Pictures for ITV. 


Previous credits include BBC4’s critically acclaimed series Getting On, which he worked on as a story and comedy consultant, Birds of a Feather and Coronation Street. His many highlights on Corrie include the funeral of the legendary Blanche Hunt, the wedding of Carla Connor to serial killer Tony Gordon, and the double episode tracking the immediate, heart-breaking aftermath of the 50th anniversary’s tram crash. 

He also originated a series of online standalone shorts for Corrie, Gary’s Army Diaries, the first of their kind for the show. These were so successful, that Damon was commissioned to adapt them for an ITV 2 one-off of the same name.
