My TV scripts...

So Wicked (TV drama pilot)
London youths Ebony, Bailey and Reece are shocked to find themselves recruited as defenders of the human race against threats from the Underworld (which just happens to be situated beneath the city. Who knew?), taking over from Bailey and Ebony's parents who are now, quite frankly, too old and past it to deal with demons and monsters. If this doesn't earn the three of them serious street-cred, then nothing will.
