Kit Lambert

Kit is a Cardiff-based television writer and a past graduate of the BBC’s Continuing Drama Series Writers’ Academy. To date he has written multiple episodes for all four of the BBC’s Continuing Drama Series; EASTENDERS, DOCTORS, CASUALTY and HOLBY CITY as well as several episodes for the last four series of BBC’s FATHER BROWN and two series of THE CORONER. He is currently lead writer on the new BBC series SHAKESPEARE & HATHWAY – PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS and has written four of the ten episodes for series one. Kit has previously been commissioned to write an episode of CRITICAL for Sky One (Hat Trick) and two episodes of Red Planet Pictures’ BBC Wales TV drama, CRASH, created by Tony Jordan. In terms of his original work, he has a comedy-drama series idea under option to Hat Trick and is developing a new 5-part drama for BBC Daytime. Previously, Kit has had original series ideas optioned by both Company and Headstrong Pictures, and ITV commissioned two scripts of his original drama LIFERS, developed with Craig Cash’s company Jellylegs.

Kit is also a playwright, and has previously written plays for Paines Plough (Wild Lunch), Hijinx, Sherman Cymru, Kompany Malakhi, Dirty Protest and the Hotbed Festival (2012). He collaborated with four other writers on True Fiction’s production of THE EXQUISITE CORPSE (Edinburgh Festival 2008, Southwark Playhouse). Kit’s short play THE LUNCH BREAK was optioned by Fiction Factory Films following its debut performance in Cardiff. He has also written showcase scripts for the last four years for the acting students at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
