Emma Boucher

Hi, I’m Emma Boucher.

I write scripts for live action and animated children's TV. I'm a word nerd with a passion for making kids giggle.


Emma Boucher

Emma is a writer for live action and animated children's TV with over 60 broadcast credits. She developed My Petsaurus from Bumpybox's initial concept to series. It was commissioned by CBeebies and Emma wrote all 20 episodes. Her first commission was the pilot script for live action storytelling series Cartoonito Tales. The show went to series and she wrote all 20 episodes of series 1 and 2. She has written for animated series Go Jetters, Messy Goes to Okido, Wanda and the Alien and Wussywat the Clumsy Cat. Her innate sense of story, lightness of touch and regularly indulged inner child keep her writing fresh, fun and funny.

Here are some words that have been said about me.

“Emma is a smart and talented script-writer. Her writing has real wit and style. She is good on story-structure and characterisation. It’s always a pleasure to work with a writer who delivers such polished first draft scripts and who responds so intelligently to notes.”

Mark Holloway,
Script Editor for Happy Go Hopscotch

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emma now on two series of My Petsaurus. Emma was the sole writer for the series and was able to deliver 20 funny and smart scripts to our tight deadlines. When we initially approached Emma to work on the show she was quickly able to take our original idea and expand it into a fully functioning series with 'fleshed out' characters and humour, making it her own. Emma is a brilliant to work with she was always open to discuss ideas and tweak the scripts if necessary. I very much hope to work with her again soon.”

Sam Wright,
Co-creator and Producer of My Petsaurus

“Emma wrote the amazing scripts for Cartoonito Tales. She delivered beautifully written, charming scripts that combine energy, humour, magic and great values for the audience. I was particularly impressed at the way she made lengthy classics like 'Swan Lake' and 'The Magic Flute' fun and accessible for younger viewers.”

Brett Davey,
Creator and Executive Producer of Cartoonito Tales
