It all started by co-writing a spec screenplay that was subject to an intense bidding war. Harvey Weinstein eventually purchased the script for a significant sum, and for Kurti and his writing partner it blew open the doors to professional writing: 14 further well paid movie commissions, writing for hit TV shows such as Primeval, Robin Hood, Wolfblood and Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal, as well as flagship dramas for BBC Radio 4.

Kurti has also written a number of novels, and following a meeting with an emerging writer on last year’s MEET THE EXPERTS they are now working together on a film script.
