Created by Matilda Curtis and Ashley Storrie, Dinosaur follows Nina, an autistic woman in her 30s.

Ashley Storrie stars in this brand new six-part comedy Dinosaur, as Nina, an autistic woman in her 30s who adores her life living with her sister and best friend Evie.

Speaking about Dinosaur, Head of Commissioning for BBC Scotland, Louise Thornton, said "We’re thrilled to be working with our network colleagues and Hulu to bring this original comedy script to life. BBC Scotland has been supporting Ashley on her broadcasting journey for a number of years now with a variety of projects and we’re delighted to see her now taking a leading role in both a performance and writing capacity alongside Matilda."

"This series is another example of BBC Scotland’s commitment to developing Scottish talent and bringing it to mainstream audiences both across the UK and internationally. It’s an exciting project and we can’t wait to see it hit the screens."

To which Executive Producers Sarah Hammond and Daniel Walker for Two Brothers Pictures added "We are so excited to be bringing this wonderful series to life with the BBC and Hulu. It is a joyful and hilarious comedy full of heart with a fresh perspective. Matilda and Ashley tell a heartfelt love story between two sisters that holds a mirror up to the inconsistencies of the neurotypical world. We can’t wait for Nina’s story to develop on screen."
