YES! Meryl Streep is funding a writers lab for women scriptwriters over 40: it’s not all about men and it’s not all about bright young things. Lets hope an equivalent patron steps forward in the UK. Who would be British Meryl? Julie Walters? Helen Mirren?
I’ve just joined the BBC and took a trip up to BBC North: home of (mainly) comedy and sport. I’m loving the building with its “pods” for worker bees on every floor. Lets hope BBC Wales comes up with something equally dynamic when Llandaff HQ is pulled down.
