Script Angel has bolstered its screenwriter coaching team with the appointment of former Miramax development executive Kellye Carnahan.

Kellye began her career in Hollywood working at the Verve Talent & Literary Agency before moving to work for film producer Julie Yorn on We Bought A Zoo. She then joined Miramax where she supported the development and production of projects including I, Tonya, The 9th Life of Louis Drax and Bad Santa 2.

Since moving to London in 2018, Kellye has been working with companies including The Bureau, Mammoth Screen, Carnival, 42 and Bill Kenwright Films. Most recently she supported the writers’ room for the English language remake of the French series Call My Agent for Headline Pictures.
