Jodie Molloy

Jodie Molloy began her writing career with a string of successful collaborations with theatre productions, including the highly acclaimed Play 2, and Play 2.03 made by Auckland Theatre Company’s Second Unit. These shows were followed up with Sex with Strangers, Sex With Strangers 2 and the cult hit My Brother and I Are Porn Stars which played to rave reviews and several sell out shows in NZ, Australia, Edinburgh and the Soho Theatre London. In 2017 she wrote and directed the sell out monologue series The Voice In My Head at the Basement Theatre.

Jodie’s television credits began with co-writing one of New Zealand’s most successful comedies, The Jaquie Brown Diaries, a satire about the perils of a neurotic television presenter struggling to get more famous at the bottom of the world. Since then she’s worked collaboratively with the best talent and production companies in Australasia writing, storylining, script producing with a particular passion for comedy. She’s also produced more than three primetime documentaries through her production company www.perendale.tv. She has a comedy series in development with the ABC in Australia as well as a dramatic feature adaptation in advanced development and a multi -project deal with Bunya Productions.

Jodie has a MSt in Creative Writing from the University of Cambridge and is a regular columnist and media contributor in New Zealand.
