Biography

Iain Morris and Damon Beesley co-wrote and executive produced E4’s hugely successful award-winning television comedy series The Inbetweeners.

The Inbetweeners Movie, produced by Bwark Productions/Young Films and financed by Film4/Entertainment Film Distributors, was released in the UK on 17 August 2011. Opening strongly, the film took £2.5m on its first day of previews and went straight in at No.1 in the box office. Their sequel, The Inbetweeners 2 again broke box-office records when it was released in 2014 and won a Comedy Award for Best Film.

Iain and Damon have co-written episodes of the cult hit HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords. Iain is also script editor for Channel 4’s multi award-winning comedy Peep Show.

Iain and Damon founded Bwark Productions in 2004 (recently sold to the Zodiak media group) – both had previously worked as comedy commissioners, Iain for Channel 4 (where he commissioned Peep Show and Phoenix Nights) and Damon had spent two years exec producing comedy and entertainment at Ealing Studios - prior to this he was commissioning editor for comedy and entertainment for E4.


The Inbetweeners was picked up by BBC America and the US version for MTV launched in 2012 with Iain directing an episode.
