Australian television script-writer.

Before working in television, Johanna Pigott had formed part of indie-punk band XL Capris, with fellow script-writer Tim Gooding, future Hoodoo Gurus member Kimble Rendall, and Julie Anderson. With husband Todd Hunter of Australian/New Zealand rock bank Dragon, she co-wrote 'Rain' for Dragon and 'Age of Reason' for John Farnham.

Pigott and Gooding collaborated on TV series Sweet and Sour, which followed the fictional band The Takeaways as they tried to break into the Sydney scene in the 1980s.

form y separately published work icon Mortified ( dir. Pino Amenta et. al. )agent Australia : Australian Children's Television Foundation , 2006-2007 Z1844380 2006-2007 series - publisher film/TV children's fantasy

Mortified follows the trevails of eleven-year-old Taylor Fry, as she copes with the general embarrassment of having parents, as well as being annoyed by her sister, jealous of her neighbour, and completely oblivious to her best friend's crush on her. The program inserts some fantasy elements into the otherwise straight comedy-drama by having Taylor speak directly to the camera, using elaborate fantasy sequences to explore her daydreams, and showing her over-active imagination as bringing seemingly inanimate objects to life.

Mortified was the last major work of television producer and screenwriter Angela Webber before her early death in 2007.
