Dead Canny Nominated for Best TV Situational Comedy Award 2023.

Anna Costello, the talented writer behind the hit show “Dead Canny” has just won the Rising Star award at the Royal Television Society North East & the Border Awards 2023. This is a huge achievement for Anna, who has been recognised for her exceptional talent and contribution to the UK TV & Film industry. 

From a young age, she knew that she wanted to pursue a career in writing, and she was determined to make her dream, a reality. After completing her degree in Creative Writing, Anna landed her first job as a junior writer on a popular television show. She worked tirelessly, learning everything she could about the industry and honing her craft. Her hard work paid off, and she was soon promoted to head writer, where she was able to put her own unique stamp on the show. She began writing for theatre, where she discovered a love for comedy and the power of laughter to bring people together. It was during this time that she began to develop the concept for “Dead Canny”, a dark comedy about a small town in the North East where everyone knows everyone else’s business. 

“Dead Canny” had great reviews for its quirky characters and hilarious storylines. The show was praised for its clever writing, and as an emerging writer, Anna ‘s talent is being recognised. The success of the show led to award nominations. 

Anna has proven that with hard work, dedication, and a passion for your craft, anything is possible. We can’t wait to see what Anna has in store for us in the future and we are excited to follow her journey as she continues to rise to the top of her field.
