Anthony Farrell


BAFTA winning writer/producer Anthony Q. Farrell has written for a variety of scripted and unscripted television series in the U.S. and Canada including NBC’s “The Office,” CBBC’s “Secret Life of Boys,” CBC’s “Little Mosque on the Prairie,” upcoming Marble and BYUtv series “The Parker Andersons/Amelia Parker.” He recently wrapped production on “Overlord & Underwood,” a sci-fi series he created. Upcoming for Farrell will be rejoining with Greg Daniels on Season 3 of Amazon’s “Upload” and writing the pilot for Apple's unannounced animated series about Anthony Anderson's childhood growing up in Compton.

Farrell recently announced that he will be running a four-week Showrunner program for Canadian BIPOC writers in the fall. As one of the most in-demand creators in Canada, he has taken what he learned as the only Black writer on The Office (S5) to become a leader and agent of change. Anthony took the masterclass of what he learned at The Office and brought it up north to his native Canada where he's been quietly dominating the scene and has been working hard with mentorship programs, majority female writer’s rooms and creative content that runs the gamut from teen shows to adult content.
