Emily Rhodes



Jonathan Kinnersley

Emily has worked in the British TV/Film industry since she was 19 years old, whilst simultaneously studying English and Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths College (University of London). Emily graduated in 2011 with a first class degree.

In 2016, Emily was working as the Writers’ Assistant to Jez Butterworth on Season One of BRITANNIA when she was offered a place on the Writers’ Programme SERIAL EYES at the DFFB Film School (Berlin).

Emily moved to Germany to pursue her own creative projects at Serial Eyes. Having now completed Serial Eyes (2016-2017) Emily is based between the UK and Germany.

Shortly after Serial Eyes in 2017, Emily moved to Munich to work in-house at Bavaria Fiction as a Writer / Development Executive in the International TV Co-Productions Department, for Executive Producer Moritz Polter.

As a Development Executive, Emily is involved with multiple projects and partakes in different Writers’ Rooms: including Season One of the German-French co-production comedy GERMANIZED, Season One of the Finnish-German co-production crime drama, ARCTIC CIRCLE and Season Two of DAS BOOT. Emily’s role includes an interesting combination of story-producing and script-editing.

In parallel, Emily recently signed a development deal with H+V (Munich) to write her own TV concept: a dark family drama, LIFELINE. Emily was also selected to pitch her digital project, a female dramedy, PUMP as part of the Digital Pitch at Serien Camp (Munich).

Emily’s other industry credits include: Director’s Assistant to Matthew Vaughn on KINGSMAN, Producer’s Assistant to Kathy Kennedy on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, as well as Director’s Assistant/Script Coordinator on films such as Benedict Andrew’s UNA and Mick Jackson’s DENIAL.
