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.

They co-wrote the Hallmark Channel Movie, Marrying Mr. Darcy, which aired in June, 2018 and had the highest “June Weddings” ratings in Hallmark History.

Their newest project is Northern Lights of Christmas for Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. It will premiere on December 2.

The team is represented by The Gersh Agency.
