Andy
Yerlett

Writer for film and television

Andy has written and developed comedies for studios and indies, including: Eon Productions, Left Bank, Big Talk, Hat Trick, Mandabach TV, ITV & Sky.


His animated feature project Mole Patrol was selected for the BFI/Aardman Animation Lab, which was then picked up for Aardman’s film slate, where Andy has developed the movie script alongside a spinoff TV show. He has since worked on a number of animated kids shows, including developing a pre-school series for Ellipsanime, animated kids’ show Hippocampus for Escape Films, as well as writing for a new Blue Zoo / Netflix show.


Along with regular writing partner Si Uttley, Andy is the co-creator of adult animation series Isle of Todd for Wildseed Studios and also live action Jesus comedy JC:BC for AGC Studios & Golden Path Productions. Together, Andy & Si are developing adult animated comedies for Beano Studios, as well as other comedy features and TV projects.


Back in 2013, Andy’s comedy Bummer featured on the Brit List of best unproduced feature screenplays of that year. As it remains unproduced, he still mentions it. The same year, his BFI award-winning short Gutpunch was shot and later released by Vice.
