Frances Poletti

Screenwriter, Freelance

Since graduating NFTS, Frances has worked with a collection of inspiring women who have helped shape and support her career, from Sharon Horgan to Vicky McClure. She loves to write dark crime dramas as much as comedic, heightened sci-fi worlds. In each of her series she creates a misfit female, trying to find her place in a world that challenges her identity. She also has a fascination with trauma and how that can be explored onscreen. Frances loves walking, returning to the Midlands to watch footy with her dad and being part of her local community in Hackney.

Frances's goal is to become a respected showrunner of successful British and American series, and to challenge the next generation.

"Fran’s passion, creative range and ability to find the emotional truth in everything is what makes her so special." Sian McWilliams, Head of Development, Left Bank Pictures
