In 2020 Thomas Ward came on board as Co-Executive Producer for season 2 of Everything’s Gonna Be Okay on U.S cable network Freeform. The project saw Tom reunited with collaborator Josh Thomas. The second season will premiere in late 2021, picking up off the back of the critically acclaimed first season which is currently streaming on Hulu and Stan.

Prior to this, Tom wrote a new series for ABC TV and All3Media – Diary of an Uber Driver. Tom was the sole writer on all six episodes. Diary of an Uber Driver was developed by Tom for Revlover Productions and premiered in August 2019 on ABC TV. The series was critically acclaimed and was optioned by streaming platform ‘Joyn’ for a German language version of the show. Diary of an Uber Driver is now streaming on Stan.

Between 2012 and 2016 Tom was 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 streaming on Hulu (USA), Amazon Prime (UK & Ireland) and Netflix. Please Like Mes 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.

In 2018 Tom co-created and script consulted the New Zealand TV series Golden Boy – a single camera sitcom about a young woman surviving small town New Zealand in the shadow of her rugby playing superstar brother. 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.

As a writer and script consultant Tom has been involved in the development of new projects from some of Australia’s most celebrated production companies including Causeway Films, Easy Tiger, Fremantle Media, Pursekey Productions and more.
