2021 SIR PETER USTINOV TELEVISION SCRIPTWRITING AWARD

Jack Robson

2021 SIR PETER USTINOV TELEVISION SCRIPTWRITING AWARD WINNER: JACK ROBSON, THE CORPSE THAT WENT TO WAR The Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award is designed to motivate novice writers worldwide, and offer them the recognition and encouragement that might lead to a successful career in television scriptwriting. Entrants are asked to create a completed half-hour to one-hour English-language television drama script.

This year’s winner, from the UK, is Jack Robson for his script, The Corpse that Went to War. Jack is an early-career writer hailing from the UK. He studied at the University of Cambridge, performing onstage and writing comedy in between reading a few books for his degree. He went on to study at Mountview in London, one of the leading drama schools in the UK. After graduating from drama school in 2019, he wrote and performed in his first play, I Woke Up Feeling Electric, a one-act existential comedy about a cheery AI assistant who starts to chafe against the role assigned to him. This play debuted in November 2019 in London, before he staged a revised version in February 2020. His play came down around three weeks before the whole world did! Although much of his experience so far lies in writing for the stage, he has been branching out into writing screenplays and teleplays. About The Corpse that Went to War It’s 1943 and the Nazis are winning. Luckily, Ewen Montagu hits upon an idea that might just change everything. All he has to do is convince his superiors he isn’t crazy and make the Germans believe in a man who never existed. But first - he needs to find a corpse…
