Cara Jennings

Excitingly, I have just had my first TV comedy drama made for Sky Arts - ‘Handel and Hendrix’ is due to go out this summer.  I’ve also finished my first feature film script ‘Flamingos’ and ‘How To Burn a Million Quid’ a 6X30’ comedy-drama about the band KLF, which I wrote with Sean Grundy, was released on BBC Sounds and broadcast on Radio 6. I strive to create surprising, imaginative and funny scripts that resonate with our times and pride myself on being versatile and collaborative; able to lend my talents to new subjects, stories and genres.
