Brauner Mattson posters

Writing partners James Iver Mattson and Barbara Brauner have been working together since their first feature script, Fluffy – about a very bad cat – sold to Disney.

Their romantic comedy spec script, Deliver Us From Eva, was produced by Focus Features and stars LL Cool J and Gabrielle Union.

They have also sold scripts to Fox 2000 and Paramount, and have been staff writers at Disney Feature Animation.

In addition to screenplays, they are the authors of a successful tween novel series called Oh My Godmother about an ordinary girl who accidentally becomes a fairy godmother. Published by Disney/Hyperion, there are three books so far.

Their most recent project was co-writing the Hallmark Channel Movie, Marrying Mr. Darcy. They are currently writing a Christmas script for Hallmark.

The team is represented by The Gersh Agency.
