About Joel Nazar-Zadeh

After studying Film at University, Joel’s original TV adventure series was shortlisted for the C21 Script Competition in 2020. In the same year, he finalised in the Writerslam Amazon Audible screenwriting competition. This led to his first commission by Audible. He has since worked on an original development with Tall Story Pictures and contributed to a development room for Character 7. He was commissioned to write an episode of Sexy Beast for Paramount+.

As if there weren’t enough hours in the day already, Joel’s writing career has been built with passion alongside a Script Editing career. He started in development at Playground Entertainment, where he supported the slate and assisted in the writer’s rooms for All Creatures Great and Small (C5) and The Undeclared War (C4). He ventured into Script Editing working on The 39 Steps for Netflix and Sexy Beast for Paramount+ at AC Chapter One, and on Danny Brocklehurst’s Ten Pound Poms (S2/BBC One) for Eleven Film. Alongside these opportunities, he’s returned to development work and recently successfully pursued and pitched for the TV rights to an iconic British Film.
