Ann Peacock

Ann Peacock is an Emmy- and Humanitas Award-winning writer who trained as an attorney and taught at the University of Cape Town Law School. After emigrating to the United States in 1986, she translated her interest in social justice and civil rights into writing screenplays. Ann's writing makes up an eclectic body of work, ranging from a Harlem Renaissance blues player, to the story of a black woman boxer, Korean War Marines, the life of Nelson Mandela, a remake of A Star Is Born and, most recently, a forbidden love affair between a woman officer and an enlisted man on a U.S. Navy Destroyer. Ann, a long-time fan of C.S. Lewis, was both thrilled and honored to be asked to adapt The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She lives in Los Angeles.
