Jonathan Allouche is married and the father of two children. He comes from Montpellier and lives between Paris and Tel Aviv.
He’s a creator, script director, scriptwriter and talented dialogue writer. At only 36 years old, Allouche already wrote for the web, the radio, theatre, television and cinema. After studying literature, he rapidly entered the professional world.
In 2001, when he was 21, he cut his teeth as an author and comedian on the Comedy channel. From 2002 to 2004, he developed editorial contents for the biggest entertainment programmes on the main French channels.
Simultaneously, he worked on famous French anchor Arthur’s first one man show on stage. In 2005, he was noticed by humorist Gad Elmaleh, who made him his co-author for that year’s ceremony of the Césars and gave him the opportunity to write for Philippe Noiret, Alain Chabat, Pedro Almodovar, Monica Bellucci...
He’s a talented television programme creator and developer: among others, he imagined the News Show broadcasted on Canal+, which was the first French political game show. François Hollande, Manuel Valls, Nathalie Kosciusco-Morizet and many other politicians participated.
In 2009 he founded the Writing collective, an eclectic writing group made up of the best crossover authors and scriptwriters who all work for Writing, his production and edition company. In the course of a few months and during multiple years, Writing and the writing collective have become one of the most creative units at Canal+.
In 2017, with a record-setting budget of 18 million euros, Jonathan Allouche signed his first feature film, the new adaptation of Joseph Joffo’s iconic biographic work Un Sac de billes (A bag of marbles), along with co-writer and director Christian Dugay. The film was a success as it gathers great French actors such as Patrick Bruel, Elsa Zylberstein, Christian Clavier, Bernard Campan and Kev Adams, with more than 1.3 million tickets sold in France. The 250 000 euros script continues its journey as it’s currently being released in over 20 countries.
