Born in London, Jefferson Bannis studied Film and Television at UCA Farnham, Surrey. He then joined the BBC, accruing researcher and assistant producer credits in factual television on single subject documentaries and magazine programmes.
He started writing drama while freelancing in television and sold an option on his first feature screenplay, the story of two runaway slaves in 18th century London. Jeff’s interests include the history and politics of London. He did his postgraduate studies in urban regeneration at UCL.
Now, after a recent spell at the NFTS, Jeff has begun developing new series ideas for TV.
