Sharing what it takes to write, develop and pitch a script, we have:
Oliver Lansley – The actual writer of the show.
Mark Talbot – Producer at Hat Trick Productions, the production company who brought the show to life.
Pete Thornton – Head of scripted at UKTV, aka the man who said yes to the script.
With writing tips, advice on how to get an agent and how to pitch, this is a unique opportunity to find out the best way to get your script to screen. Plus, we’ve been given permission to preview an episode from the show itself.
About the show: Robyn is a flack: a PR agent who promotes, publicises and protects her clients in the maelstrom of a modern media-led society. It’s her job to fix other people’s lives, despite the fact she is incapable of fixing her own. Starring Anna Paquin, Sophie Okonedo, Lydia Wilson, Rebecca Benson, and guest stars including Bradley Whitford, Darren Boyd, Alan Davies and Katherine Kelly.
Anna Paquin said, “Oliver Lansley has written six of the best scripts I’ve ever read. He walks that fine line between intense character driven drama and exceptionally intelligent humour. My character, Robyn, exists in a world where there are no moral absolutes and humour is used as a sharply executed defence mechanism to maintain the illusion of perpetual control. I am incredibly excited about tackling the creative complexities of Flack as an actress and for my company CASM’s collaboration with W and Pop.”
