To describe Isabella Rodriguez as a 'star on the rise' would be an understatement. Instead, she's a comet crashing through the Swedish comedy scene leaving a trail of laughter in her wake.
Her work for film and TV has put her firmly in the limelight of the Swedish industry.
Isabella has been behind comedy series such as 'Bauta', 'Kurs i självutplåning' and 'Drugdealer’, and in 2024 her upcoming work as a director is coming out at TV4, starring some of Swedens biggest stars in comedy and acting. Her films as a producer have been shown and awarded, at prestigious festivals across the world (Rotterdam, SXSW, Clermont Ferrand, BFI etc).
Isabella is drawn to comedy from the perspective of 'the outsiders', something to which she is able to apply her sharp comedic wit and timing. As she explains, 'I enjoy twisting norms finding an everyday life in pointed and dramatic situations as well as finding errors and a disrupted flow in situations that are usually portrayed as smooth, cool or very dramatic. This was the concept for Drugdealer, where a leader of a criminal gang has to handle situations such as employees birthdays, development interviews and his own fatherhood
