Matt Baker

Matt's growing list of children's TV credits includes Digby Dragon, Wissper, Bottersnikes and Grumbles, Kazoops, Emmy & GooRoo, Wildwoods, and BAFTA award-winning favourite Clangers. He was also a core member of the writing team on Dennis and Gnasher: Unleashed and Luo Beo Bei, both of which have been nominated for 2019 International Kids' Emmys.

After his series of comedy shorts appeared on the BBC Comedy website, Matt quickly established himself as a writer for children of all ages, and recently appeared in Prolific North's list of 50 top scriptwriters working in the north.

In contrast to his children's work, Matt has also written the documentaries Dennis Rodman's Big Bang in Pyongyang (Showtime/Amazon), following the former basketball player's ill-fated diplomacy trip to North Korea, and Wildlands, a companion film to Ubisoft's video game 'Ghost Recon: Wildlands' investigating the violent South American cocaine trade. As long as he never includes any of those subjects in his children's writing we think he'll be all right.
