About Matt Kennard

Matt is currently developing an original series LEGACY with Balloon Entertainment and the BBC. The series is centred around the complex and ambitious O’Connor clan, a hugely successful, working class, boxing dynasty from Manchester.

HYMN OF HATE, Matt’s debut short film which he wrote, directed and produced, is a First World War drama, starring Russell Tovey and Thomas Turgoose. The film has received multiple award nominations and screened at festivals worldwide.

He’s currently in development at Mini Productions with PRIMARY DEBATES, his debut feature film as a writer/director. The coming-of-age comedy drama follows the classmates of a small-town primary school during the 1992 General Election, as they embark on their first lessons in politics, propaganda, friendship and loyalty.

His comedy series NOT TRYING about a couple in their thirties who definitely do not want kids, co-written with Laura Aikman, was previously in development with Hattrick.

Matt has also worked with Retort and Sharp House Films.
