Ross Denyer, writer and actor

Ross Denyer


Ross was born in England and raised in Texas and North Carolina, which must be why so many people think he’s from Australia.

His passion for writing landed him a scholarship to an 8-week NYFA screenwriting course with Dan Kay (Pay the Ghost, I.T.), and his first TV pilot, The Relief, was a finalist in ScreenCraft’s Pilot Launch and Screenwriting Fellowship. His next pilot, What Darkness Brings, is a top-ranked script on The Black List and was selected for the ATX/Black List Writers Program.

He also directed and co-produced award-winning webseries The Verge in NYC and wore a half-dozen hats on his Western short film, Tell No Tales, now streaming on Amazon Prime.

Ross is currently writing a new sci-fi pilot and a Western feature. He lives and dreams in Los Angeles.
