James McCarthy

James McCarthy is a London based screenwriter. He loves writing “heightened genre” pieces, where he can add left-field elements to commercial ideas to make stories which are surprising and relevant. He particularly likes creating thrillers with tight, twisting plots, but also enjoys developing ideas that will play to a wide range of audience emotions.

Excited by both Film and TV, James has a current pilot TV script commission that’s yet to be announced and a recent feature screenplay sale which is also under wraps. He is currently developing a slate of new ideas/spec scripts for the coming year.
