Hi, I'm Céin (pronounced "Keen" or "Key-un" if you're Irish - I'll take either!) and I'm originally from the Black Country in the West Midlands, UK.
I'm a writer and series director that specialises in comedy and works across both scripted and non-scripted formats; devotedly crafting, leading and delivering confident and ambitious, warm and funny TV.
My focus is always in finding the 'soul' of the show and approaching it with genuine heart, so audiences are left feeling fulfilled.
Alongside my writing partner Andy Kinnear, I'm the co-writer and creator of the BBC/Netflix scripted comedy series Top Coppers, the BBC true crime parody series Sexy Murder and the Channel 4 comedy thriller pilot Law Man, all of which I also directed.
I have also written, produced and directed across various comedy entertainment, factual entertainment and documentary formats, most notably as the showrunner (series director & exec producer) for the 2021 return of GamesMaster; the 90s cult video game challenge series where I was responsible for conceiving and implementing the creative vision that respectfully captured the spirit of the original while also satisfying a new 2020s audience..
I was recommend for GamesMaster by Channel 4 following a series of successful fact ent formats, including Peng Life for E4, Spencer and Vogue for C4 and In Bed with Jamie for E4, all of which were commissioned to series from my original pilots.
I have also completed numerous projects for E4's BAFTA winning structured reality series Made in Chelsea.
A lot of my work is available to see here on the Watch page.
