Catherine Wignall is a screenwriter and cat lover from England.

She made her feature film debut with the Blumhouse YA horror-comedy movie CRAWLERS (Hulu) and has recently finished writing the first season of a new MGM/Brat TV show called GOOD LUCK, HAVE FUN (YouTube). Additionally, she is currently developing a show based on the Savannah Reid Mysteries (a popular series with 26 books published so far) alongside production company Piller/Segan, and is working with Tapas Comics to develop new original work. 

Catherine is a BAFTA LA Newcomer, as well as a Fulbright Scholar, BAFTA Scholar, and a graduate of the UCLA Screenwriting MFA program. She is also the proud recipient of the Carl David Memorial Fellowship in recognition of her work promoting positive representation of LGBTQ life. In April 2021 she was named as one of Austin Film Festival's 'Screenwriters to Watch'.  
 

Although she set out to be a serious writer who wrote about serious things, Catherine has gradually come to accept that she can’t quite bury her wry sense of humour and is perhaps at least a little funny. She enjoys writing about young women and pop culture, tackling serious subjects in a light-hearted manner, and all with an eye to increasing diversity on the small and big screen. 

 

When not writing, she spends most of her time wishing she was a witch, a cat in a well-off family, or Harry Styles’ best friend. She is represented by Ensemble Entertainment.
