Daniel Karlsson writes scripts for film, TV, radio and the stage. He has written or co-written the feature films Min pappa Marianne, Jag kommer hem igen till jul, All Inclusive and Hallonbåtsflyktingen. The films are on different parts of the scale between drama and comedy, but they are all about families in different stages of crisis. Daniel often gravitates towards stories that hurt, because that’s also where the humor is.

For TV, he has most recently been one of the main writers for the drama-comedy series Vuxna människor, and he has also written episodes for success shows such as Tunna blå linjen, SPUNG 2.0, Beck and Lite som du, aswell as writing for children’s tv-shows Allt och lite till, Allrams höjdarpaket and the Kristallen-awarded Lasse-Majas detektivbyrå. Daniel likes to switch between being a main writer and episode writer and he enjoys collaborating with others.

He has a recurring collaboration with Ida Kjellin with whom he has written Min pappa Marianne, the multiple award-winning radio series Mördarens apa and Exorcismen i Eksjö. 

For Swedish Radio, Daniel has been involved in writing two Christmas calendars, and the series F-som i sämst as well as Den oändliga historien.

Daniel also takes on assignments as a dramaturg for film and television.
