Sarah LambertWriter | Showrunner | Executive Producer

Writer, showrunner and producer Sarah Lambert has created some of Australia’s most critically-acclaimed drama series in recent years. Most recently, Sarah was the writer and showrunner of The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, which is an Amazon Prime television adaptation of Holly Ringwald’s hit novel, starring Sigourney Weaver. The Lost Flowers of Alice Heart received widespread praise from critics, international and local audiences alike, and is Amazon’s most successful global launch ever for an Australian show. It was nominated for twelve AACTA awards, ultimately taking home Best Miniseries. Her work on the series additionally earned her an AWGIE nomination for Best Screenplay in a Limited Run series. Sarah was recently selected by Screen Australia and the Australian Writers’ Guild to participate in the second edition of The Creators Accelerator Program.

Prior to The Lost Flowers of Alice Heart, Sarah wrote on the tv series The Messenger for ABC iview. The Messenger is based on the novel of the same name by internationally bestselling author Markus Zusak. Sarah also produced and wrote on the miniseries Lambs of God for ABC iview, a gothic tale about three nuns living in an isolated convent who must confront an unwelcome visitor. Lambs of God received eighteen AACTA award nominations. Sarah received a nomination for Best Screenplay in Television at the AACTA awards, another for Best Television Series or Mini Series of 4 hours or less duration at the AWGIE awards, and won both Best Telefeature or Miniseries at the AACTA awards and Television or Mini Series Production of the Year at the SPA awards for her work on Lambs of God.

Sarah’s earlier work is equally impressive with many of her shows now recognisable classics in Australian television. Sarah wrote and created Love Child, a tv series which followed the lives of staff and residents in a 1960’s fictional Sydney hospital. Love Child received twenty nominations over the four seasons it ran, including Best Television Miniseries Original at the AWGIES, Best Television Drama Series at the AACTA Awards, and twice for Best Drama Program Logie Awards. Sarah has also written episodes for the award-winning shows The Doctor Blake Mysteries, A Place to Call Home, and Dance Academy, for which she was nominated for Best Children’s Screenplay at the AWGIES.

Sarah recently partnered with multi award-winning director Jane Manning and television executive Andrew Lambert to create their own production house, Lantern Pictures. Lantern Pictures currently has 10 projects in the early stages of development.
