Kristina Jilly, Founder
Kristina Jilly is a former HBO Europe writer with experience working on TV shows for RTL Television and production companies in Europe and the U.K.
She developed and wrote TV drama series for HBO Europe for over four years and worked on several shows for RTL Television such as ALTAR GIRLS, AMONG FRIENDS and LOVE ME NOW, where she held the position of story editor. Kristina has participated in numerous writer's rooms over the years and has projects in development in the crime, thriller, period drama and comedy-drama genres.
Kristina is drawn to complex, highly flawed, female anti-hero characters and is currently fascinated by how mid-life crisis is manifesting in Gen X. Her biggest influences in no particular order are the Cohen brothers, David Lynch, Aline Brosh McKenna, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.
With a BA from Melbourne University and a MA in Screenwriting from Royal Holloway, University of London, Kristina also teaches undergraduates at the University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria.
She is represented by Fiona Grant at Dench Arnold.
Kristina was born and bred in multicultural Melbourne, Australia. Her parents were Hungarian immigrants, refugees of the 1956 revolution. Curious to learn more about the old country and itching for adventure, Kristina got her first job teaching English in Budapest before being sent to teach journalists in a fast-deteriorating ex-Yugoslavia. After two years, realising she was broke, Kristina made the not-so-obvious transition into the cut-throat world of London headhunters in the late 1990s. She became partner in a recruitment company, married and had two kids.
About ten years ago, Kristina started writing professionally. What followed was a roller-coaster ride through the finicky world of TV writing. The constant that keeps her sane, you ask? Creating online content in a range of topics. She's also back in the classroom teaching at FHOÖ in Austria.
