Kelsey Munro is a writer, researcher and journalist from Sydney, and the co-creator 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 sold to international markets including the BBC (UK), the CW (US) and HBO Latin America and been renewed for three seasons. Kelsey wrote the pilot and several episodes across the series, and worked as a producer on the second season – now in post-production – and will also produce the third season, which goes into preproduction in December 2021.
Bump is Kelsey’s first commissioned TV show. She has also worked on shows in development for Roadshow Rough Diamond and Scripted Ink. Her first original TV script, the comedy-drama Clicks was shortlisted in the 2017 Australian Writers’ Guild/AFTRS Script Showcase and the AWG PrimeTime competition.
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, kids and dog.
