Bye Bye Blackbird

Comedy Drama (Feature)


Tom Bird can’t catch a break. On the verge of winning the World Beatbox series, his deadbeat dad dies and forces Tom to abandon his shot at the title. Selfish bastard. And if that isn’t bad enough, Tom has to get of out Belfast. Fast. Fleeing the vengeance of a Belfast Mobster, Tom stumbles upon his dad’s hidden past. A past that may just save his life.

Bye Bye Blackbird has been developed with the help of NI Screen as one of three winning entries for the NI Screen New Writers Focus (2017-2018). It was showcased by professional actors in front of leading producers and agents on 29th March 2018.

Co-written with Darren Gibson


After Midnight

6 x 30’ Comedy


After Midnight are one of the best wedding bands on the circuit. On stage they are electric. But a peek behind the curtain tells a very different story. No gig is the same. No commute without banter and incident. Four very different people forced together in a comedy crucible of personality clashes, vain ambitions and farcical disasters. Can their reputation survive?

An earlier draft of ‘After Midnight’ made it into the top 17% of the BBC Writersroom Comedy Submission window for 2017, gaining a full read. It has since been re-written following consultations with Hayley McKenzie at Script Angel

Karol Griffiths (Script Angel) has assisted in initial discussions of this project.
