Some call him the reincarnation of Billy Wilder and Woody Allen, with just a splash of Sophocles. We just call him a skillfull screenwriter.

While starting out as an actor, Joakim Granberg shifted to screenwriting after being cut out of the David Fincher movie “The Girl with the Dragon tattoo”. Not only because he was deeply hurt, but also because he realized his dramatic skills was better used in writing. 

Since then, he has established himself as a comedic voice in television drama. Joakim uses the ups and downs of his own life in making painful comedy and relatable drama. He believes all drama is dead without a sense of humor. Take “Sopranos” or “Boogie Nights” for instance. Without the humor, you wouldn’t care to watch. That’s the philosophy by which he operates.

When not writing his own material, Joakim has been working writer’s rooms at several production companies, and as a script editor on more projects than he cares to count. At the moment he holds a position as an in-house script editor at SVT (Swedish Broadcasting Company).
