David is looking for new ideas and new ways of telling stories. Family drama/ crime procedural/young adult comedy/action - they all must have a strong sense of diversity a 21st century sensibility.
What we're looking: The Fuchsia Corner is focused on producing bold and thought-provoking content for film, TV and online distribution that feels original, fresh, modern and very well-executed.
Would love to meet someone who both writes and directs, bonus if they’re a woman, and whose work is about holding up a mirror to ourselves as individuals and as a society.
Currently looking for film and TV scripts emphasising story and character that can work in the UK and US. Collaborating with partners in LA.
We are looking for contained thrillers, action, historical action, true crime, and if a good romcom comes along then great!
Looking for writers with a passion for creating children’s shows; I’m looking forward to hearing about your experiences in the ‘smart, fart, heart’ school of writing!
Interested in genre projects that use their tropes to communicate social messages and pertinent, contemporary themes. Projects that strive to tell fresh, diverse, and inclusive stories and/or are authored by those from diverse backgrounds of all kinds.
The opportunity to learn and connect is a huge draw, and this kind of collaboration is vital to the work."
Deanna Turnbull, Screenwriter
Currently seeking: Live action - Adventure, thriller, sci-fi, comedy/romcom, family. Animation: Family/fantasy.
Looking for a good “hero’s journey” that tells a human story. We are also interested in thrillers and stories with a lovely twist. Changing the audience’s expectations and getting them “off guard”.
It was extraordinary, beyond my expectations… What a wonderful celebration of this art form, which we’re all so passionate about."
