For this event, we’re joined by the writer and actors of the sitcom Trying, the UK’s first original production for Apple TV+. The series follows the story of couple Nikki and Jason as they navigate trying for a baby and exploring adoption. With the second season confirmed, writer, Andy Wolton and actor Esther Smith will be talking Host, Scarlett Russell about their experience on the first season and plans for series two.
Andy Wolton started writing comedy in 2010. His first script won a national BBC sitcom competition and was read at an Edinburgh Festival showcase. In 2011 he was then awarded the prestigious BBC Radio Writer’s bursary. He has since written on dozens of radio and TV shows. In 2017 he was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist, a list of new emerging talent tipped as future stars. He is best known for writing Trying, Apple’s first ever British scripted comedy, and one of The Independent’s top 20 shows of 2020. Series 2 is currently in production.
Esther Smith is a BAFTA-nominated British actor and writer who trained at the Guildford School of Acting. On screen, she plays Rachel in BBC 3’s Cuckoo, now in its fifth series, and is a regular in BBC 3 British sitcom Uncle. She’s also starred in Black Mirror, Skins and Cockroaches. On stage, Esther has performed at the Young Vic in Fairview as well as being part of the original West-End cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre.
