JEN UPTON

With more than 15 years’ experience, it’s safe to say that Jen’s a Children’s Media veteran, albeit a very young one. She has worked in development and production at HIT, Chorion and Disney, acting as creative executive on preschool shows for 6- to 12-year olds. 

Always a screenwriter in the background, on the birth of her second child, Jen turned to writing full time, Head Writing for CBBC’s Bottersnikes and Gumbles, Dennis and Gnasher: Unleashed, and Digby Dragon for Nickelodeon, as well as developing and writing for other shows.

Jen specialises in bonkers, fast-paced comedy that is always full of heart.
