Wiktor Piątkowski

“I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can’t stop eating peanuts.” (Orson Welles)
I created and co-wrote HBO’s first original series in Poland – Wataha (broadcast in HBO Europe’s 16 territories as The Pack and on Channel 4 in the UK as The Border; distributed worldwide by ZDF Enterprises). Over the last 8 years, I have worked as showrunner, head writer and writer on various shows (crime series, soap operas, scripted reality – more than 100 hours of television produced). From 2014 to 2015 I lived in Germany, and since then I’ve divided my time between Berlin and Warsaw. Since 2015 I’ve worked for companies from Germany, Austria, Norway, Italy, Belgium, Croatia and Poland.
At first I studied economics and psychology and then I graduated from the Polish National Film School. I’m an alumnus of “Serial Eyes” (organized by the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin and the London Film School), the European TV Drama Series Lab (organized by the Erich Pommer Institut Berlin and MediaXchange) and Racconti #5 (organized by IDM, Letterbox and Palomar). I am also one of the 2016 Berlinale Talents. I have a PhD in television marketing and run BAHAMA FILMS, an independent production company based in Warsaw.

Wiktor Piątkowski lives in Warsaw but works all over Europe.
His three favorite films/series are: Casablanca | Little Miss Sunshine | The Sopranos.
