Award-winning Writer for Film and Television

Nicole Taylor's latest thiller series The Nest recently aired on BBC One to excellent reviews. Her feature film Wild Rose was released this year to excellent reviews. It is directed by Tom Harper, produced by Faye Ward, and stars Julie Walters, Jessie Buckley and Sophie Okonedo. The film has three BAFTA Scotland nominations including Best Writer and Best Feature Film.

Praise for Wild Rose:

"Taylor deftly nails the dramatic beats. More admirable still is her willingness to keep the sharp edges of her story intact" – Financial Times

Nicole won a BAFTA for Best Writer for her three-part BBC series Three Girls about the Rochdale grooming scandal. Three Girls aired to outstanding reviews and a powerful audience response, going on to win a BAFTA for Best Mini Series.

Praise for Three Girls:

“Searingly compelling drama” – The Times

“TV with this kind of power and significance is rare today - telling, or asking us something about ourselves, in the Cathy Come Home tradition - and to see it three nights running in prime time on BBC One is astonishing” – The Herald

Prior to writing Three Girls Nicole's multi-BAFTA nominated single drama The C Word was produced for BBC1 and starred Sheridan Smith.

Previously Nicole has written on numerous series, including Indian Summers for Channel 4, The Hour for BBC2 and Ashes to Ashes for BBC1.
