Harry & Jack Williams
Writers & Managing Directors
Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning and BAFTA-nominated writer-producer duo Harry and Jack Williams set up their independent production company Two Brothers Pictures in 2014. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength, producing shows for Amazon, HBO, AMC, BBC, ITV and Sky. At the core of the slate is Harry and Jack’s writing partnership, with their first dramas for the company including BBC1’s ONE OF US and BBC1’s Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated drama THE MISSING. THE MISSING, which starred James Nesbitt, was also nominated for four BAFTAs, including Best Drama. This success led to a second series, starring Keeley Hawes and David Morrissey, which broadcast at the end of 2016 to critical and commercial acclaim.
Harry and Jack have only become more prolific since then, writing shows such as the hugely successful series THE TOURIST which aired on BBC1 in 2022 and became the most watched television dramas of the year. THE TOURIST will soon return for a second series, alongside the hotly anticipated BOAT STORY which stars Daisy Haggard, Paterson Joseph, Tchéky Karyo and BAFTA award winner Joanna Scanlan. Harry and Jack also penned both series of the suspense thriller LIAR- one of ITV’s highest performing dramas and winner of the Best New Drama TV Choice Award.
