TV: A drama every day

Posted on Saturday, November 10, 2018 in TV

rainshadowNearly 20 years ago, when I was a struggling sitcom writer, someone at Channel 7 told me that a new production company called Screentime was looking for an afternoon teen soap.

My then co-writer Steve recalls that by the time I had driven from Epping (Sydney) to the city centre for coffee, I had nutted out a proposal for series that would eventually be called Breakers and run to about 400 episodes.

Screentime meanwhile went on to become one of the major players in Australian TV .

After that I created Crash Palace for Fox and Sky (UK) and co-created (with Tony Morphett) Rain Shadow for the ABC .

In between times, following my philosophy of never turning down a paying gig, I wrote for some weird and not-so-wonderful TV shows.
