Victoria Pile started out writing comedy for television and radio, before going on to develop her talent/passion for producing and directing. She spent her early career at the BBC, before honing her skills at a variety of leading independent companies.
She devised, produced and co-wrote the double EMMY award-winning sketch show Smack the Pony for Channel 4, as well as the surreal two-hander Los Dos Bros (winner of the Silver Rose at Montreux). Becoming as well respected for creating original visual style, to compliment a fresh comic tone, Victoria also directed episodes of both programmes, taking elements from the style of these two shows, Victoria then devised, produced and co-wrote the BAFTA-winning comedy Green Wing.
She has spent some time in Los Angeles, writing producing, and directing a sitcom pilot for ABC/Paramount and developing another with NBC. Back in the UK, as well as directing a number of commercials, Victoria is the co-founder of Monicker Pictures, the Brick Lane based company behind Campus, a University based comedy for Channel 4, which she also directed.
Her television comedy success means she is also in demand to direct commercials for the advertising industry – undertaking a long running Direct Line campaign for M&S Saatchi, featuring Chris Addison, Alexander Armstrong, Darren Boyd and Doon Mackichan.
The Delivery Man, created and directed by Victoria and written by Rob Harley and James Henry, began on ITV in April 2015.
