Caroline Norris

TV Producer and Writer

Caroline has been producing prime time comedy since 2006 and TV more broadly since 1994. She co-created CBBC’s multi award-winning sketch show Horrible Histories, producing the first five series as well as 2019’s triple BAFTA-nominated Horrible Histories the Movie: Rotten Romans.

Other credits include Tracey Ullman’s double Emmy-nominated sketch show for BBC1, the pilot episode of Martin Freeman’s new Sky/FX series Breeders, Caitlin Moran’s Raised By Wolves (C4), Simon Blackwell & Chris Addison’s Trying Again (Sky), Sharon Horgan’s Dead Boss (BBC2), and BBC1’s BAFTA-winning The Armstrong & Miller Show.

Caroline runs a small production company, Citrus Television, with Giles Pilbrow and Dominic Brigstocke. At Citrus, she has developed and executive produced ITV1’s Newzoids, Jack Dee’s comedy entertainment series Don’t Sit in The Front Row, and CBBC sketch show Fit, as well as the BAFTA-nominated CBBC game show, Horrible Histories Gory Games.

Caroline went to Corsham Comprehensive School in Wiltshire where she had precisely no contacts in the television industry. Realising that you could make a career out of really liking watching telly was the greatest moment of her life.
