Philip Robinson



Emily Smith

Philip is currently adapting BEATLEBONE by Kevin Barry for H2L Media, who have also optioned his spec script GB, featured in 2018 on The Brit List

Working in the Emergency Department at one of London’s biggest NHS trusts was Philip’s starting point for his first TV pilot, BLUE LIGHT, a political thriller that marries detective story with hospital drama. This is in development with Keshet. He is currently developing new TV projects.

Philip has also written three feature scripts. Two character led dramas exploring universal themes set in unusual worlds, and an action conspiracy thriller with a double identity twist.

While Philip’s writing is character centred and emotionally engaging, it is equally commercial, lean and hard hitting.
