Pete Henderson was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. He graduated from Ireland’s ‘National Film School’, specializing in Screenwriting and Directing.
Although he’s been writing screenplays since his early teens, he turned professional in 2012. Before the school term ended, he was hired to write for London based Producer Michael Elson (Dredd, Troy, Casino Royale etc.). That same year, a Comedy feature he wrote placed well in the Hollywood based contest ‘The Page Awards’ and got picked up by an Irish production company. It is in talks with the Irish Film Board for moving into production.
He moved to Los Angeles in July 2013, and has been working as a writer, script reader and in the development department of a production company in Beverly Hills.
