Chris Lang is the writer and producer of over one hundred and twenty hours of prime time British drama. He trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, leaving in 1983 to work at Nottingham Playhouse for six months. There he met fellow actor Hugh Grant, and the two of them formed a comedy writing partnership (later joined by fellow RADA student Andy Taylor) called The Jockeys of Norfolk, who enjoyed great success at the Edinburgh Festival, and who went on to star in their own TV comedy showcase. Chris is best known as the writer, creator and executive producer of the critically acclaimed and award-winning series Unforgotten.
In this podcast episode, Chris shares about his upbringing, creativity and how happiness is unrelated to career success.
