Biography

Kieron writes for television with Robin French. In 2008 they were chosen as Broadcast Hotshots - a pick of young talent to watch.

Their comedy series Cuckoo transmitted on BBC3 in October 2012 starring Greg Davies and Andy Samberg, and was the most successful launch of a BBC3 comedy ever. It has since transfered to BBC1. The second series aired on BBC3 in Autumn 2014, starring Taylor Lautner as Cuckoo's long lost son.

Together Robin and Kieron have written series on both sides of the pond - their comedy Roomates transmitted in the US in Spring 2009 and their original series Trinity was on ITV2 in late 2009.

Kieron also writes comedy solo - and has been writing pilots for CBS and Shine in the US.

A journalist and theatre critic for the Evening Standard, Kieron has also written for children's dramas as well as the book and lyrics for the musical adaptation of Terry Pratchett's novel, Only You Can Save Mankind.
