Michael Keillor grew up in the Scottish Countryside where lost
hours were spent scribbling stories while his imagination ran wild. After
Law School, travelling and a handful of jobs, Michael picked up a camera,
and taught himself how to make films.
Michael scripted an early version of 'Grand Theft Auto', but first film screenplay was optioned by the BBC, while his second secured a commission from Channel 4. While continuing to write, Michael also developed his craft directing TV drama for BBC, ITV, Sky & Channel 4.
In 2012 Michael was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA for 'Young James Herriot' while delivering the series finale to Andrew Davies' 'Mr Selfridge'. In 2013 Michael shot Peter Moffat's 'Silk' and in 2014 completed Jed Mercurio's highly acclaimed new medical drama 'Critical'.
Re-teaming with Jed Mercurio in 2015, Michael is currently in Post Prodcution on series three of the Bafta nominated BBC 2 Anti-Corruption thriller 'Line of Duty'.
In parallel, Michael has continued to write and direct his own material and just delivered “Liam + Lenka”, a twisted Highland
love story backed by the BFI and Warp Films, starring Iain De Caestecker and Katarina Cas.
Based in London, Michael Keillor is represented for writing and directing
by Michelle Archer at United Agents.
Michael is also repped by Phil D'Amecourt, Melissa Myers, Ryan Draizin at WME in LA
