Kieron
Quirke

Writer for film and television

Kieron Quirke writes comedy and drama for television. The first series of his latest comedy Defending the Guilty - starring Katherine Parkinson and Will Sharpe aired on BBC2 after a well-received broadcast pilot last September (’very, very funny’ - Daily Telegraph, ‘emphatically brilliant’ - Daily Mail)

Kieron is otherwise known for Cuckoo, the comedy he co-created with Robin French, starring Greg Davies and (at various points) Andy Samberg, Taylor Lautner and Andie Macdowell. It was the highest rated comedy debut on BBC3 ever, and has gone on to huge success, running on BBC3 and BBC1 for five series, and garnering BAFTA and Comedy Award nominations.

Kieron also develops drama, and for the US market. His other produced series include Trinity (ITV2) and Roommates (ABC Family), both created with Robin French. He also directs shorts.
