Hello. I'm Sam Barlow. I’m a writer for kids TV. I’ve written for some of the best loved kids’ characters on the planet. I'm not one to brag but my work has contributed to a glittering pile of BAFTAs, Emmys, IFTAs, Prix Jeunesses, Broadcast and British and Irish Animation Awards.

 

I'm an experienced script editor and head writer, and I can oversee the scriptwriting for entire series. I work in development too and have a top secret slate of original projects on the go (details on request). I approach everything I write with masses of heart and humour, and with a deadly eye for story structure.

Bonus dinner party fact: I once co-wrote a song for the legendary Dolly Parton in the guise of a big-feathered country and western chicken (Dolly, not me). I'm quite proud of that.

Wildwoods

This is Cooper the Sasquatch and Poppy the Sugar Glider. They are the stars of Wildwoods - an ambitious, and very beautiful, puppet show for 5 to 7s that I was lucky enough to head write.
