Four Sugars, Just Like My Brother
This pilot script for a gritty 3 part drama series got James down to the final 26% of entrants for the 2020 BBC Writers Academy.
The story follows Jimmy a 30-something year old man as he returns to Dublin for the first time since running away as a child, to attend the funeral of his younger brother Declan.
Was Declan's death in the park really suicide? And why did Jimmy escape his life when he was just a boy?
I See You Harry
I See You Harry was James' first attempt at writing a feature length screenplay. This two hour film was written in 2013 and got to the second read through in the BBC Writersroom Scheme aswell as gaining some interest from agents at the time. A buyer nor producer transpired in the end and the script has sat gathering dust for 7 years....until now.
The story is a coming-of-age comedy drama about Harry, a 20 something year old man who is confined to a wheelchair after an accident. The story explores his relationship with his sister as she nears becoming a teenager and starting a new school.
