CURRENT PROJECTS

DIAMOND ALICE - Treatment/Pilot Script

Brilliance will shine in the darkest of places.

  

In 1916, a clever young woman takes over London’s all female criminal gang, The Forty Elephants. She brings them to astonishing heights of power, battling other male gangs and the Metropolitan Police. 

Based on the real people and true events, Diamond Alice is a television series of six one-hour episodes, with development planned and researched for five seasons in total. Similarly to ‘Peaky Blinders’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’, it reflects current social issues around feminism, gender power relations, inequality and social mobility through a historical lens.

NEWS AND EVENTS

DHA Open Day Success

August 11, 2019

Back in June, the pilot episode of Diamond Alice, 'The Hoister's Code' was submitted to a literary agency in London who are hosting an Open Day on September 19th for underrepresented writers. 10 out of 580 entries were successful, of which 'The Hoister's Code' was one! 

So on September 19th, I will be lucky enough to go up to London, meet with some agents, producers, and other writers for a day that is bound to be really informative, interesting, and useful. 

Quarterfinalist at the 2019 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards

July 18, 2019

Very excited to announce that Alice has reached the Quarterfinalist round at the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, which is probably the biggest competition Alice has been entered for, at 7,200 entries. All of this 'almost success' means I probably have something good, but it perhaps just needs a redraft to make it to the final rounds of these events. 

Longlisted at Thousand Films

June 03, 2019

Another piece of fabulous news - Alice has been selected for the long list at Thousand Films, which is comprised of just over 100 scripts from nearly 2000 submissions - keep everything crossed for us! 

Edinburgh TV Awards sending Alice to Thousand Films

March 20, 2019

In exciting news today, the Edinburgh TV Festival were so impressed with Alice that they have asked to submit it on my behalf to a partnered initiative called 'Thousand Films'. Run by the makers of 'Killing Eve', this is a script competition to find new women writers - fingers crossed again! 

Longlisted at Edinburgh TV Festival All3Midea New Script Award

February 05, 2019

Really pleased to announce that Alice has made it to the top 50 scripts at the All3Media New Script category of the Edinburgh TV Festival New Voice Awards, and made it through to a second round of reading, but unfortunately didn't quite make it to the the very end. I just have to keep plugging away, I think! 

Interview on Medium

October 07, 2018

Following the appearance in the Special Mentions at London TV Pitchbox, Filmarket Hub have published an interview with me about Diamond Alice. It was really fun to talk about the project and how it came about. You can read it on Medium here!

FEATURED INTERVIEW BY FILMARKET HUB

September 21, 2018

In anticipation of the TV London Pitchbox event on September 28th, Filmarket Hub will soon be featuring an interview on Diamond Alice on their blog and across their social media. 

While we won't be pitching at the event, the one-page description of Diamond Alice will be in the program for the viewing of some great TV giants; Lionsgate, Sky, Virgin Media, e one, Caryn Mandabach productions, UKTV, Red Arrow, and others. It's a fantastic chance to get the project noticed, and an honour that the concept and script was judged good enough to present to them. Fingers crossed! 

QUARTERFINALIST SELECTION FOR WESCREENPLAY TV CONTEST 2018

September 03, 2018

Hot off the good news about the TV London Pitchbox comes the news that Alice has made it through the first round to be a Quarterfinalist in the WeScreenplay TV Pilot Contest 2018. 

With over 1000 entries, the competition was quite tough, but now it's down to 217, it's going to get even harder! 

The semi-finalists are announced on September 21st - so keep your fingers crossed! 

PITCHING EVENT FEATURE AT RAINDANCE'S TV LONDON PITCHBOX 2018

August 30, 2018

Fantastic news - Diamond Alice was chosen as one of the 'fantastic and truly inspiring' projects for 'Special Mention' by FilmarketHub for the upcoming Raindance/Filmarket Hub 'TV London Pitchbox' event on September 28th.

 

The event is a presentation of seven pitches to Sky, e one, Virgin Media, Red Arrow Productions, UKTV and Caryn Mandabach Productions, followed by a networking lunch. 

Although we unfortunately didn't get chosen to be one of the seven pitches, it's great that the one-page description of Alice will be in the program at the event.
