Tom Ward is the co-star and co-writer of the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed series Please Like Me. The groundbreaking comedy-drama screened on Participant Media’s ‘Pivot’ network in the U.S. and Australia’s national broadcaster ABC TV, and is now seen around the globe on Hulu (USA), Amazon Prime (UK & Ireland) and Netflix. Please Like Me’s scripts have been awarded by the Australian Academy (AACTA Awards) and the Australian Writers Guild (Awgie Awards), while the show has won and been nominated for numerous other awards including AACTA Awards, International Emmy Awards, Rose d’Or Awards. The series was listed on Entertainment Weekly’s top 10 shows for two consecutive years.

The series pilot was selected for production as part of the Three network’s ‘Comedy Pilot Week’ before being commissioned as a full series. The 8-part comedy premiered on Three in 2019 to critical acclaim. “There’s an inherent cheerfulness to it, and that energy is massively appealing”TheSpinoff.co.nz
