Kelsey Munro is a writer, researcher and journalist from Sydney, and the co-creator, producer and writer of the original Stan comedy-drama Bump.

Bump received critical acclaim and was the most-watched debut on Stan at its release in January 2021. It has screened on the BBC (UK), the CW (US) and HBO Latin America, and been renewed for five seasons. It has been nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 2022 Logies (Season 2) and Best Drama Series at the 2024 AACTA Awards (Season 3). Kelsey was also shortlisted in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards 2022 for scriptwriting, for Bump. The fifth season is in preproduction and will be released late 2024.

Bump was Kelsey’s first commissioned TV show. She has also written episodes for the crime drama Scrublands (Nine Network/Stan, 2023) and the Stan Originals coming-of-age drama Year Of (2023) and is currently developing several projects.

She was previously a Lowy Institute research fellow and a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra where she led a major project on authoritarian technology and human rights, and co-authored a landmark report into forced labour in global supply chains. As a journalist she was a news reporter covering state politics and education policy for the Sydney Morning Herald, where she was also a senior editor; and worked as a features writer for The Guardian and Rolling Stone, among others.

She lives in Sydney with her husband and kids.
