Cynthia Okoye joined Curtis Brown in 2008 having graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in Law (LLB).
She initially worked with agent Amanda Davis across her brilliant list of writers and directors in the theatre, film and television department before setting up her own list. Her mission is to find and represent unique filmmaking talent and enable them to build careers in the UK film and television industry, and beyond. Her list is an eclectic range of writing and directing talent. From the very new to the very established. From smart character-based comedy to bold drama and imaginative, distinctive surprising ways of storytelling. Her clients work across film, TV and occasionally theatre, and include Mickey Down (HBO’s INDUSTRY), Shola Amoo (THE LAST TREE), Tom Moran (THE DEVIL’S HOUR), and Francesca Gregorini (THE DROPOUT, KILLING EVE).
