Tony Grisoni is a british screenwriter who recently took part in writing Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope (2016), one of the most influential dramas in last year. Previously, he wrote the British mini-series Southcliffe (2016) and the TV movie trilogy Red Riding (2009).

Currently, he’s developing a script for Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, a 10 part adaptation of the author’s main body of work, which was the original source to iconic movies such as Blade Runner (1982), Minority Report (2002) and A Scanner Darkly (2006). The series is being produced by Brian Cranston, and will be featured in Amazon and Channel 4.

Grisoni is also well regarded as a film writer, especially after collaborations with director Terry Gilliam such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Tideland (2005) and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, adaptation of Cervantes’ world-classic that, it seems, will finally see the light after an infamous 20 year development hell.

At Serielizados Fest, he will talk with Toni Garcia Ramon about everything surrounding his various projects.
