Juliet May

Juliet May is an award-winning director who’s enjoyed a long (and hilarious) career in classic British television comedy. Over the years she has directed some of the most iconic television to grace our screens including the first three series of Miranda, three series of Call the Midwife, series four of Last Tango in Halifax and seasons one and two of the critically acclaimed Motherland for BBC2. Juliet also won an Emmy for her feature-length TV drama Dustbin Baby for BBC1 and a Royal Television Society Award and BAFTA for the children’s comedy series, Microsoap. 

Since signing for commercial representation in 2017, Juliet’s advertising career has gone stratospheric. To name just a few, she has directed a major television campaign for NOW starring Catherine Ryan, a loud-out-loud, physical comedy for Kellogg’s, a series of charming spots for Aldi’s Easter and a trio of films for British Airways Holidays that highlight her ability to nail typically British dialogue and awkward interactions.

Due to her extensive background in television, Juliet is incredibly efficient with time, totally professional and a delight to work alongside.
