Nessa Wrafter


In 2018, Nessa wrote and directed the short film, Early Days, starring Maimie McCoy (Van Der Valk, Musketeers, White House Farm) and Adrian Bower (Gangs of London, The Last Kingdom), which was screened at numerous Oscar and Bafta-qualifying festivals internationally, winning multiple awards on the festival circuit. 

In 2021, Nessa was chosen by the screenwriter/showrunner Lisa McGee (Derry Girls, The Deceived, Being Human) for one-to-one mentorship as part of the BBC/ITV Mentorship Scheme with Dancing Ledge Productions. Lisa selected Nessa’s TV project, Reunion, developing it with her to take to international broadcasters.

Nessa has written an episode of internationally acclaimed drama Smother S3 for RTE/BBC Studios which broadcasts on RTE, Alibi, ABC, NBC and HBO in 2023. She has also written an episode of new RTE/BBC Studios thriller series Black Shore for RTE1 and a BBC Studios True Crime series for BBC3 - both will air in 2024. 

This summer, Nessa was named a Broadcast Hot Shot of 2023. She is developing an original TV project with RTE and a film through her production company, KLICK Productions. She has recently obtained the rights to adapt Eimear Ryan’s novel Holding her Breath.
