Female writers slam glass ceiling in UK TV drama

Female writers slam glass ceiling in UK TV drama
76 women sign open letter to commissioners that claims British drama is “overwhelmingly written by men”.

A group of more than 70 female writers has accused UK drama bosses of failing to give them opportunities to ‘graduate’ from soaps to flagship primetime shows (reports Broadcast).

In an open letter to TV drama commissioners, 76 women, whose work ranges from EastEnders and Casualty to Midsomer Murders, Hollyoaks and Us series How To Get Away With Murder, claimed British drama is “overwhelmingly written by men”.

The letter was prompted by a recent ITV drama release that set out 10 upcoming shows for 2018, but featured just one written by a woman – Gwyneth Hughes’ adaptation of Vanity Fair. The broadcaster has since announced a second series of Kate Brooke’s detective drama Bancroft.

The signatories, who include The Coroner creator Sally Abbott, writer and actress Sarah Solemani and Debbie Moon, who devised Cbbc’s Wolfblood, said there is an “untapped resource” of female writers who have cut

Trailer Watch: A Girl Decides to Live as a Warrior in “I Kill Giants”

“I Kill Giants”: Rlje Films

“There are times when you have to ask yourself: Do I want to live my life as a coward or a warrior?” says a teen girl who’s embraced life as the latter in a new trailer for “I Kill Giants.” The fantasy film sees the line between imagination and reality blurring for Barbara (Madison Wolfe, “The Conjuring 2”) and her loved ones. The social pariah escapes the harsh realities of being bullied at school by committing herself to a magical world where she’s a hero — a world where she finds, hunts, and kills giants.

Barbara’s passion seems to cause her school counselor (Zoe Saldana, “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and others concern. The teen isn’t lacking in self-awareness. “I know that no one likes me. I know that everything I do looks crazy,” she acknowledges. But she doesn’t let that judgement stop her,

Director Steve Hughes interview: Creeped Out, Doctor Who

Louisa Mellor Jan 23, 2018

We chatted to director Steve Hughes about making Cbbc’s eerie anthology series Creeped Out and Doctor Who

TV and film-making is an arduous, competitive business. Unless a project is particularly close to the hearts of those making it, it’s unlikely to survive the process. Talent and a good idea can get you part of the way, but it takes really, really loving that idea to drive it through to the end, attracting more talent and love along the way.

Cbbc’s Creeped Out buzzes with love from the people who make it. A thirteen-part eerie anthology series inspired by Spielberg’s Amazing Stories, it tells emotionally resonant horror, sci-fi and fantasy-tinged tales that are suitable for kids and irresistible to adults.

Cbbc's Creeped Out: spotting the nerdy 80s movie nods

“Nods to Spielberg, Zemeckis, Joe Dante, even John Carpenter…” Director Steve Hughes (Doctor Who, Wolfblood) is telling me about the first time he read a script for Cbbc anthology series Creeped Out. “I remember begging ‘you have to let me direct this – it’s my dream job!’”

The scripts, Hughes recalls, had a real flavour of Amazing Stories (“one of my favourite TV series from the 80s”) and “were clearly written by people who loved the same films as TV shows as I did.” Those people were Bede Blake and Robert Butler, movie nerds through and through.

“Oh! The candy-striper vampire one in Are You Afraid Of The Dark? And the clown, The Ghastly Grinner!”

“The magician one in Amazing Stories. Definitely.”

“There’s one about a pool and this horrible, fleshy skeleton came out of it and grabbed these kids. Still now, if you Google it, it’s one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever seen, I can’t believe it was ever on telly.”

“The Never-Ending Story had something called The Nothing, that was really nothing, literally and figuratively. It stuck with me and freaked me out as a kid, the idea that things were disappearing and nothing was in its place.

Hereford to Unleash Supernatural Horror Film ‘Tormented’ (Exclusive)

Hereford to Unleash Supernatural Horror Film ‘Tormented’ (Exclusive)
U.K. production company Hereford Films has added supernatural horror film “Tormented” to its slate, the first in a series of America-set genre movies from the company.

Written and directed by Adam Stephen Kelly (“Done In,” “Kill Kane”), “Tormented” centers “on teenager Ashley Loren, who — in the aftermath of a tragic car accident — is haunted by nightmares of her dead sister, and must uncover her town’s dark past in the hope of vanquishing the malevolent spirit that terrorizes her from beyond the grave,” according to a statement.

Hereford Films CEO Jonathan Sothcott commented: “The glut of horror films released weekly to home entertainment platforms makes standing out from the crowd a particular challenge, and over-saturation of inferior product is going to be an increasing problem but our model for these genre films at Hereford mixes the best elements of Hammer and Blumhouse: unashamedly populist, high-concept and modestly budgeted horror

Wolfblood series 4 has changed everything and nothing. Underneath what's new, it's the same ace show with the same positive message…

Wolfblood series 4 hits the ground running... literally. First episode Captivity introduces its new urban setting and action-spy genre with a slickly directed nocturnal street chase that’s more Alias than Eolas. No longer a stranger to technology, formerly wild Wolfblood Jana has a headset and a mission. She’s the best agent in the business, and her prey doesn’t stand a chance.

In a fun twist, said prey turns out not to be a villain but Tj, the errant teenage son of Jana’s boss at swish multinational Segolia. He’s soon sniffed out and found mucking about in Katrina’s newly opened Kafe (a franchise don’t-you-know).

On their way home to mum, Jana and Tj cross paths with a couple of young Wolfbloods in
