Andy Potter

Andy is the extremely funny writer and creator of a number of critically acclaimed children’s  programmes including the 2017 BAFTA winning Class Dismissed (CBBC), which was also the only children’s programme to be nominated for a Comedy award at the 2016 RTS Awards. As well as developing new projects for children of all ages as part of the BBC’s in-house development team, he has also written for sketch shows, game shows and live events; always pushing comedy boundaries, while being aware of creative and commercial restrictions. In 2017 Andy left the comfort of the BBC to embrace new challenges as a freelancer and is excited to be exploring a range of new writing opportunities. He is currently developing original projects with Zodiak Kids and the BBC.
