Aug 2015 – ‘Diddy TV’ and ‘Class Dismissed’ film over summer

Two new sketch shows which I’ve written material for have been filming over the summer: ‘Diddy TV’, for which I’ve been a lead writer, is a sequel to the BAFTA-winning ‘Diddy Movies’. Again starring Dick and Dom, this time the show’s spoofing the TV schedules and ad breaks, from Strictly Come Dancing to Bake Off. ‘Diddy TV’ is set for broadcast on CBBC at the end of 2015. ‘Class Dismissed’, also for CBBC, is inspired by reality shows like ‘Educating Essex’, and takes place in a weird and wonky school, where the teachers definitely need more help than the students.

May 2014 – ‘A Long Long Crime Ago’ series commissioned

CBBC has commissioned a mini-series of ‘A LONG LONG CRIME AGO’, the show that puts fairy tale characters on trial for their crimes. I’ve been developing the show with BBC Scotland over the last two years, including a pilot script, and I’m now writing the four half hour episodes. The series will mix courtroom drama, CSI reconstructions, and fairy tale funny bits; shooting starts late 2014.
