Lisa Gifford

Writer

Lisa was a brickie, barista, NHS Manager, film sales agent and wrestling ring announcer, before sensibly deciding to jack it all in to become a writer. She wrote a popular digital series, 3some, and after being contacted by many viewers to share their own experience of the issues in the show, became passionate about exploring contemporary life through her work. Lisa has gone on to be a writer on BBC’s EastEnders, and is one of the Edinburgh TV Festival’s Ones to Watch for 2018. She is currently developing a series of working class monologues with Jed Mercurio/Hat Trick Productions, and horror/thriller feature, Covetous, about the UK parole system, with Director Melanie Light.
