I’m writing more sketches for Tracey Ullman‘s BBC1 topical sketch show, TRACEY BREAKS THE NEWS, with Brona C. Titley.

I’ve co-written the script for BAFTA’s ‘Films in the Frame’ programme with Brona C Titley.

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.
