Tom Kingsley is 32 and directs TV and film involving jokes and/or ghosts. He has just finished Jamie Demetriou and Robert Popper’s Channel 4 sitcom Stath Lets Flats, is currently directing the second series of Liam Williams’s BAFTA-nominated vlogger mockumentary Pls Like and will soon be starting work on Ghosts, the new ghost-based comedy from the stars of Horrible Histories.
Other recent work includes Jamie Demetriou's body horror comedy short Oh God for Sky Arts, and the opening episode of Channel 4’s spooky series True Horror. Tom also directs commercials with Blink Productions, and has had over 50% of his music videos shown at the BFI.
Tom has directed two features with Will Sharpe, the first of which - Black Pond - was nominated for a BAFTA, and the second of which - The Darkest Universe - wasn’t. Together, Tom and Will won the Evening Standard’s Best Newcomer award and were named by Variety as two of the Top Ten European Directors to watch.
The nation sighs, gathers its thoughts, and, as one, turns over to Channel 4 to watch Stath Lets Flats at 10pm
