Michael Keillor grew up in the Scottish Countryside where lost
hours were spent scribbling stories while his imagination ran wild. After
Law School, traveling and a handful of jobs, Michael picked up a camera,
and taught himself how to make films.
Michael’s first paid writing gig was an early version of 'Grand Theft Auto', while his first screenplay was optioned by the BBC and his second secured a commission from Channel 4. Michael has continued to develop his craft directing TV drama and in
2012 was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA for 'Young James Herriot'. In 2013 Michael delivered the series finale to Andrew Davies' “Mr Selfridge” and has just wrapped prime-time legal drama 'Silk' for BBC One.
Michael has continued to write and direct his own material and has just delivered “Liam + Lenka”, a twisted Highland
love story backed by the BFI and Warp Films and staring Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Katarina Cas (Wolf of Wall Street, The Guard).
Based in London, Michael Keillor is represented for writing and directing
by Michelle Archer at United Agents and Phil D'Amecourt, Melissa Myers, Ryan Draizin at WME in LA.
Michael is also repped by US Lawyer Michael Schenkman.
