Two series (each 6 x 3mins) for BBC Comedy Online starring Brian Blessed as Henry VIII somehow living in a modern suburban semi with long-suffering sixth wife Catherine Parr.
The Exploding Heads
Ongoing work with Anthony Richardson, Ben Tonge and Keith Gubbins, covering diverse subject matter, all getting The Exploding Heads treatment.
This was co-written with Glen Long and was a spoof documentary in which my character had had all of his debts written off by a production company in exchange for allowing them to film him 24/7. It was all done under our own steam and we made 2 episodes a week for 6 months in 2009 (it nearly killed us!).
We assumed most people watching it would know it was a spoof. We were wrong! Some amazing things happened during the series, including becoming the front page headline in the Worthing Herald when we filmed an episode there.
To Earth With Love
Co-written with Jon Wright, on a bursary from the Film Council.
A sci-fi comedy feature about earnest, but clueless, aliens who journey to earth attempting to avert an ecological disaster. Based on the short film “Hello?” written by me from a story by Jon Wright.
Songs From A Distant Place
Co-written with Chris Vincze.
A feature-length comedy about what happens when the logic of TV adverts starts infecting the world at large.
Co-written with Glen Long, Hywel Berry and Chris Stimpson.
A surreal ‘skit-com’ set in a shared workplace, this is “Lost” meets “The Office”. How weird do things need to get at work before someone is brave enough to question it?
A mysetrious late-night talk show host binds this comedy together, for all the characters awake and / or working in the city through the night listen-in to his quietly insane ramblings.
