Breaking into the industry is the dream of many a writer and Robert Thorogood is no exception. After being chosen as a finalist for the Red Planet prize, the big break finally came and he now has a prime time Murder Mystery series on BBC1 with over 6.5 million viewers each week.
Euro Scriptchat is delighted to have Robert Thorogood @robthor as a guest this Sunday.
Robert has been writing for many, many years without much success. He's written three feature films for independent producers, two one-off comedy dramas for ITV and a one-off historical drama for the BBC (none of which have yet been made). As well as this he's been constantly developing series and film ideas - and selling the odd treatment or pitch - but nothing much ever came of them, either. In fact, his primetime BBC 1 show Death in Paradise is his first ever broadcast credit. It's been an interesting journey to say the least, and he's learned a lot about why all of his previous ideas never quite made it and why Death in Paradise was the one that 'got away'.
Join us this Sunday the 20th November at 8pm GMT for a chat with Robert Thorogood.
