Television & Film: Drama

His career spans television, both dramatic and documentary, film, theatre, and journalism.

My television and film work began in the U.K., with an apprenticeship to director Carol Reed, then writing plays and series episodes for the BBC and Granada, as well as two independent films. After I moved to the U.S., I wrote for both network and PBS television in a variety of styles - straight fiction, adaptations , and docudrama.
