Set phasers to fun!… I’ve script edited the first CBBC game-show with a live play-along app, LUDUS is showing on Mondays from 20 January. Set on a weird and wonky space transport, it’s made by Boom Kids, and the full run is 20 episodes. To play along live or on catch-up, download the app here.
I’ve won a development deal with VH1 in New York for a nostalgia reality TV show pitch I created with Brona C. Titley, ‘Teen Time Machine’. We pitched as part of the New York TV Festival – a Hollywood Reporter article on the festival deals and awards is here. We were artists at the 2013 festival as part of the Bafta Rocliffe comedy writing forum.
As a winner of the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Award 2013, my sitcom script ‘Nannies’, co-written with Brona C. Titley, was performed as part of a primetime event at the NEW YORK TV FESTIVAL on 23rd October. Greg Daniels, co-creator of The Office and Parks & Recreation (right), then gave us a live notes session on stage at the SVA Theatre.
I’m script editing a brand new futuristic game-show called LUDUS, set in a twisted virtual world. It’s being made by Boom Kids for CBBC, and the 20 half-hour episodes include a dual screen option where viewers can download a game app to play along in real time.
I’m writing episodes for a new series of Bafta-winning comedy THE SLAMMER on CBBC, including the Christmas special with a special star CBBC line-up, and all the festive trimmings!
I’ve been re-commissioned to write on a second series of the BAFTA-nominated Diddy Movies for CBBC with Carl Carter. The show is due to start filming in a few months… I’m also writing additional material for a new adult sitcom pilot with a supernatural twist.
I’ve been asked to join a panel at this year’s LONDON SCREENWRITERS’ FESTIVAL, taking place at the School of Film Media & Performance on the last weekend of the month. The session is about writing scripts for young people – if you’re around at the event, do come along and say hello!…
