Cartoonist moving into comedy writing. My latest sitcom has been optioned by a production company. A broadcaster's shown interest, and I've been commissioned to write a second episode. Could still come to nothing, of course. Latest update - it's going ahead! Simon Callow in lead role, filming in February. Now to knuckle down to writing a third episode. And rewriting, and changing the order of the episodes, and rippling though (new phrase!) the themes, and rewriting, and cutting entire scenes, and rewriting...
Filming finished! I was there for the week-long Brighton shoot, great fun. Now for post-production...
The Rebel starts on July 20th at 10p.m. on Gold, and the subsequent two weeks.
Well, it happened. Overall pretty encouraging reviews, reasonable viewing figures. Fingers crossed for a second series!
