Jessica Connell

BBC Scotland

Jessica began her career working as a script reader for Electric Entertainment in LA; it was here that her love of creating original drama, and the creative process, flourished. She went on to work on animated productions for Disney Jr & CBBC for Indie Ko Lik Films before gaining a place on the Skillset training program where she worked as a script editor for BBC Drama. Following her traineeship she was hired as a Storyliner on BBC Scotland’s flagship program River City where she currently resides.

“Jessica has an extremely natural gift for storytelling, always showing drive and purpose and being true to character. Her knowledge, craft and love for the visual medium is exceptional and her work ethic and dedication is second to none.”
