Our story

Script Angel was founded in 2011 by experienced script development professional Hayley McKenzie. After many years working in the film and television industry, Hayley realised that writers struggling to break in didn’t have the opportunity to work with experienced script editors to help them develop their work.

Script Angel was formed to offer professional, tailored script development support to emerging and developing writers.

We passionately believe all screenwriters should have the opportunity to discover, develop and achieve their full potential

Inclusivity lies at the heart of Script Angel’s values. All of the team passionately believe in the need for multiplicity of voices, perspectives and stories on our screens. They want to celebrate and amplify diversity of experience by helping writers from all backgrounds to be heard.

Helping writers with talent and professional ambition to unlock their potential and develop the skills they need to breakthrough drives the company’s endeavours.

Script Angel’s flagship screenwriter coaching programme was designed to replicate the one-on-one professional script development process that commissioned writers experience. It has developed to put the writer and their personal goals and aspirations even more front-and-centre by incorporating a personalised career development strategy to guide the script development work.

As word has spread about the high quality service we provide to emerging writing talent, so the Script Angel team has grown to enable us to help many more writers, all over the world.
