Jeppe Gjervig Gram was born 1976 in Odense, Denmark. After working for 6 years as a drama series consultant for Danish network TV 2 he enrolled in the screenwriting program at the National Danish Film School graduating in 2007. Gram was headhunted by public broadcaster DR and employed as a regular episode writer on the one-hour drama series SOMMER, one of the highest rating shows on Danish television the last twenty years.
Jeppe Gjervig Gram then teamed up with head writer Adam Price and Tobias Lindholm to create the three-man writer’s room that created the first Danish political drama series BORGEN. The three writers developed the storyline for all episodes together, and Gram served as an episode writer on 10 out of the 20 episodes in seasons 1 and 2. Adam Price and Jeppe Gjervig Gram continued their fruitful collaboration working closely together on the 3rd season, where Gram worked on stories for all episodes and wrote 4 of the final season’s 10 installments.
