Georgia Lester

writer


TELEVISION

Georgia started her writing career in the SKINS writers room at the age of 18, pretending to be a cool teenager. Her improvised tales of drinking and drugs must have impressed because she remained on the SKINS team for five years, writing four episodes, including the Finale of Series 6. Georgia became the youngest ever writer on HOLLYOAKS at 19 and has written over 20 episodes, as well as being part of the core development team on E4s YOUNGERS; writing an episode on Series 1. She has had development projects with Kudos, NoHo, Feelgood Fiction and Lime.  Georgia was a Broadcast Hot Shot in 2011 and has (awkwardly) talked about her writing experiences so far at the Media Guardian Edinburgh Television Festival and The London Screenwriters Festival. In 2015 Georgia spent three months in New York, where she story produced E4s new structured reality show TAKING NEW YORK with TwoFour Productions, finally learning what ‘some scenes have been constructed for your entertainment’ actually means.  She has since story produced on TOWIE.  Georgia’s first feature script MULES was chosen to be showcased at the 2015 BAFTA Rocliffe’s Film Forum.
