Yero Timi-Biu is a London-based award-winning writer-director for TV, film and theatre. She specialises in comedy-dramas. Aside from fiction, Yero has been working in the media industry since she was sixteen; from journalism, script editing prime-time TV shows, audio production for documentaries and international radio stations, to press relations and communications. After studying screenwriting in New York, with an appetite to further explore story, Yero was selected as a participant for Soho Theatre’s yearlong Young Company playwright residency, graduating in 2016. In 2018, she won the BFI Future Film Festival New Talent award for her ICA London/Channel 4’s Random Acts commissioned short comedy-drama, Beneath the Surface, where she was writer, co-director and producer. She was then commissioned again by Channel 4’s Random Acts/Little Dots Studios to write the short film Two Minutes in collaboration with illustrator Adebanji Alade. Both films were broadcast online and on TV. She is currently developing her next film Signs with BFI, which she will shoot at the end of the year. Alongside creating her own content, she works full-time on the development team at BBC Films.
