Well done hi! Derry Girls writer comes in at number 11 in the ‘Radio Times TV 100 power list’

A Derry screen writer has narrowly missed out on being in the top 10 of the Radio Times TV 100 power list. Lisa McGee beat the likes of Gary Lineker and Piers Morgan to make it to the number 11 spot. She is best known for her hit show Derry Girls which recently topped the Radio Times Comedy Championship Final poll. The Channel 4 comedy, set in our very own hometown, has been highly acclaimed and won Best Comedy earlier this year at the Irish Film and Television Awards.
