Zoo Co are looking for a brilliant deaf writer who loves collaboration and creating bold characters with fun, highly engaging storylines to help them create Bossy, a brand new children’s show aimed at 5-9 year olds.
Bossy follows Beth who is clever, confident and wants to become the best leader in the world, and is often called ‘Bossy’ for it. They want the show to be a celebration of young, inclusive feminism, deaf culture and black culture. As such, Black deaf writers will be prioritised in our search. We are also open to applications from deaf writers/ storytellers from other backgrounds. The show will be performed primarily in BSL, and we will explore how we incorporate English through captioning and speech.
