WORK IN PROGRESS

The Guerrilla Gardener.  TV series.

A gaslighted young wife struggles out of the shadow of her policeman husband, rediscovering the woman she used to be … by embracing crime.

Cora’s life is mapped out for her: in her late 20s, happily married to Matt and with a baby on the way, she’s leaving the inner-city neighbourhood she once loved, and sleep-walking into suburban contentment.
Until she wakes up.

This is a story about power struggles in a marriage, and a turf war power struggle in an inner city suburb.

The Colour Room.  Feature.

The story of Clarice Cliff.
In the 1920s, an impoverished young paintress from the drab, industrial Midlands refuses to be defined by her circumstances and dares to embark on a journey into colour and design that will lead her to become a leading Art Deco figure of the twentieth century.

Tinned Street.  TV series.
A drama inspired by true events: a working-class community’s fight for survival to save their rundown streets from destruction – which went on to win the Turner Prize.

Liverpool, present day. The few, disparate residents left behind on Rhiwlas Street wake up to demolition tape and eviction notices: regeneration is coming, and they’re no longer wanted. They have four months before the wrecking ball destroys their Victorian terrace homes to make way for a brighter, modern future.
With little alternative and everything to lose, the residents commit to fighting by guerrilla gentrification.
The fight is led by Ioan, a young, laid-back single father who has always worn his marginalised status like a badge of honour. It’s cost him his marriage and has kept him in near poverty. The threat of losing access to his kids propels him into action and – after a bumpy start – the fight sees him transform into a leader, a spy and a community champion, taking his neighbours with him.
