Comedy writer and director Lucy Forbes joins SMUGGLER for worldwide representation.
The London based filmmaker found breakout success with the darkly comedic coming of age story, In My Skin, for the BBC and went on to helm Channel/4 Netflix's critically acclaimed The End of the F***ing World Season 2.
Her work is characterised by her bold visual style, unique comedic sensibility and universally relatable characters. She finds inspiration in the comedy greats of the past like Mike Nichols, Hal Ashby and the Coen Brothers to create a body of work that is timeless while relatable to a modern audience.
Prior to her recent long-form successes, Lucy began her career in commercials helming campaigns for brands as diverse as ASDA, Carphone Warehouse, Comic Relief and Oreo, always infusing her trademark style.
SMUGGLER co-founder Brian Carmody says: “Lucy is an incredibly exciting addition to the SMUGGLER roster. She's clever, witty and charming both in person and in her work. Her experience is vast, ranging from television to commercials, celebrity and performance. We feel lucky to have the leading voice of the new generation of comedy directors joining the family.”
“After a very busy 2019 making back to back TV, I’m thrilled to be joining the wonderful SMUGGLER roster for commercial representation. There is an amazing team behind me there and I’m excited for this new chapter in my commercial career," says Lucy.
