A Broadcast Magazine “Hotshot”, Nida Manzoor is a prolific and award-winning genre-comedy writer and director.

With a stellar background in short-film, in 2018 Nida directed the first series of hit BBC comedy series “ENTERPRICE” – written by and starring Kayode Ewumi and in 2019 she directed two critically-acclaimed episodes of the cult BBC sci-fi show “Doctor Who” starring Jodie Whittaker.

In 2020, Nida conceived, wrote and directed the BAFTA and Peabody winning musical sitcom “We Are Lady Parts” for Channel4/NBC.

In 2023, Nida made her feature film debut with the critically-acclaimed martial-arts comedy “Polite Society”.

“One of the brightest, most ambitious young writer-directors in years. Nida and Edgar Wright share a fun, smart, quirky sensibility on commercial material that is quintessentially British”. – Nira Park (Producer : “Baby Driver”, “Shaun of the Dead”, “Hot Fuzz”)
