Sameera optioned her first screenplay in 2013 - a biopic of actress Vivien Leigh and her battle with bipolar disorder. Since then, the screenplay VIVLING made the BRIT LIST and she’s worked with companies such as Netflix, BBC, Fremantle, Lime Pictures and ITV Studios.

 

Sameera wrote three episodes for season one of the BBC/Netflix show GET EVEN, and two more for their second season. She is currently writing on the 10th season of THE DUMPING GROUND for BBC, and has various other projects in development with companies such as Rollem Productions and CBBC.

 

Sameera enjoys exploring messy, challenging, complex anti-heroes in a bold, accessible, and entertaining way. She has a strong desire to explore stories from the perspective of those who aren't as often given the microphone, and is drawn to topics that tackle themes of injustice, psychological battles, and real life, real strength, endurance stories - both through a comedic and a dramatic lens.
