Wodenbroad - TV series (In Development)
Writer: Rosamund Attwood
From breakthrough writing talent Rosamund Attwood comes WODENBROAD, a supernatural, black comedy, horror TV series set in the Norfolk broads. The show centres around teenager Avery and her band of friends as a body is pulled out of Wodenbroad; the lake and epicentre of this heightened and peculiar community. The show is a journey into rural England’s collective unconscious; into the ancient mythologies we can’t seem to shake, the absurd conflicts we cannot resolve, and the terrifying monsters who thrive in this darkness.
Hey Baby - Feature Film (In Development)
Writer/Director: Sophia Di Martino
From Writer Director and performer Sophia Di Martino (FLOWERS) comes HEY BABY a swaggering, queer, female-led relationship comedy about a rebellious, working class misfit hero Nina Gunner. Set in a romanticised version of Manchester, this is the story of Nina’s personal crisis after her girlfriend Irene becomes pregnant with their baby. A punk celebration of queerness and womanhood, and an empowering story about balancing individual freedom and identity alongside parenthood.
