My TV scripts...

A while back, I had a sitcom in development with an independent production company, but sadly, the project didn't get past the pitching stage. Ah, well. Onwards and upwards!
Below are extracts of a few of my many scripts. Production companies or agents interested in my work can email me to request a full script.

Seven Magpies (TV drama pilot)
Lauren should be happy, but she's not. Five months ago, her six-year-old daughter was killed by a drug-driver. As a result, her mind is fractured, her behaviour is odd and her actions are unpredictable. Her husband thinks her erratic state of mind is down to loss and grief, but Lauren is hiding a dark secret, a sinister event which took place ten years ago. Like seven magpies, it's a secret never to be told.

Ghosting (TV drama pilot)
What do you get if you cross a stiff-upper-lip British Army officer from the 1940s in full battledress, a 90s girl wearing the iconic Gerri Halliwell union jack dress, a streetwise modern 16-year-old girl from an inner-city council estate and a young lad in a fast-food joint uniform? And what if they are all ghosts from different time periods who share a house together? These afterlifers are in limbo and their world is about to get dangerous.

Trudy Madeley Deeply (TV sitcom pilot)
20-something Trudy Madeley's life is a mess. After walking out on her boyfriend Rick for his constant infidelity, (and for giving her a rather nasty rash) she has no choice but to return to the family home. But a lot has happened since she's been away. Although still sharing the same house, her parents have separated. Also, her father's mid-life crisis has flared up again, and as such has a new teenage girlfriend in tow.

Complicated (TV sitcom pilot)
Sitcom about Spencer Grimes, a 22-year-old window cleaner who falls for Grace Young, a 41-year-old divorced mother of two with her own successful vehicle hire company. There are just two niggling problems. His current girlfriend Tiffany and his best friend Kirk are Grace's grown-up children.
