Your upcoming series Nowhere Close - in a few words, what's it going to be about?


It's a very funny, dark, surreal comedy.


What were your sources of inspiration when writing Nowhere Close?


Fanni Compton had a character called Tracee and it was really just expanding the character's world.


How did the project get started in the first place?


Fanni and I met and just sort of synchronised, very similar outlooks and senses of humour and ambitions.


What can you tell us about Nowhere Close's co-creator and co-writer Fanni Compton, and what's your collaboration like? And how did the two of you first meet even?


Fanni is very funny, ridiculously hard working, a sort of Renaissance woman. We talk and our conversations sort of crystallise into ideas when we go off on various tangents of absurdity. We met on LinkedIn.


Do talk about Nowhere Close's brand of comedy for a bit!


It's DARK. We kind of approach various issues head on. I really find it difficult talking about certain characters without giving away stuff - suffice to say Nowhere Close goes to areas that other comedies don't.


As we speak, Nowhere Close is still in pre-production, but anything you can tell us about the series' cast yet, and why exactly these people?


co-creator Fanni Compton

Lots of talented people involved, Fanni Compton as the lead Tracee of course, Mickey Jones as Father Colin, Kelli Hollis of Shameless fame and Laura Rosana, so all good.


From what I know, you're currently running a fundraiser for Nowhere Close - so do talk about your campaign for a bit!


We need cash, filming is expensive but in all seriousness is there anything better to invest in than comedy? Not just any comedy but one that will make you howl.


Any future projects beyond Nowhere Close you'd like to share?


Too busy concentrating on Nowhere Close.


What got you into screenwriting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?


It's the only thing I am any good at. I would be utterly useless cannon fodder if I didn't have this one ability. I received no formal training. I failed at school or to be more accurate school failed me.


What can you tell us about your film and TV work prior to Nowhere Close?


I nearly wrote for TV, I met with the script editor of the Sky Atlantic series Critical back in 2015 and pitched ideas but it got axed. I've written for NewsRevue and The Treason Show and had various plays staged as well as had a book published in 2014 called The Gore Lounge, a dark satire of the future.


How would you describe yourself as a screenwriter?




Writers, filmmakers, whoever else who inspire you?


Dennis Potter obviously.


Your favourite movies?


Dune, The Silence of the Lambs, Heat, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from New York… Basically anything John Carpenter, Lucio Fulci [Lucio Fulci bio - click here], Norman J Warren, Alan Bennett, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Terry Gilliam, Michele Soavi and lots of others.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


With the pilot in pre-production I think I would really be tempting fate by listing things I deplore. Suffice to say if you watch the stuff I write I think you’ll know.
