JAMES HENRY's writing career was launched with his original comedy Skiffy which won Channel Four's sitcom writing competition in 1998, going on to join the writing team for Smack the Pony (Talkback/Ch4), the Bafta award winning comedy series Green Wing, and Campus. A new sitcom pilot Delivery Man, co-written with Green Wing's Rob Harley, is currently in production with ITV.

James has written regularly for many childrens' series, including Bob the Builder (Hit/BBC), Shaun the Sheep and Canimals (Aardman/BBC) and the upcoming Duggee's Den for CBeebies. He is currently developing a Cornwall-set drama series about a group of retained firefighters for BBC1.

After writing an original feature script HERO TRIP, in development with the British Film Council, he is now at work on follow-up SF action script REMOTE.

James has written a fantasy novel for teenagers entitled The Curious Cabinet, and has a writing blog at jamesandthebluecat.blogspot.com
