I’ve been writing professionally for a long time now, with credits ranging from writing sketches on the BAFTA winning Smack the Pony to being head writer on a couple of TV entertainment show and commissions/options for nearly 10 sitcom pilots. Here are some of my recent projects:
THE REBUILDING OF TOM COOPER
I’ve just finished writing my first novel, The Rebuilding of Tom Cooper. It’s a sort of Bridget Jones for men in their late 30s, and should be released sometime in 2019. The aim has been to write a book that people who like Peep Show and Outnumbered will like, so if you’re in the market for 80,000 words worth of jokes and a good story – watch this space!
ONCE IN A LIFETIME
My current drama project is in development with a really great TV company. I don’t want to say too much about the premise, as I think it’s pretty special, so details will follow after it’s been taken on by a channel, but suffice to say it’s all very exciting.
COURT OF FOOLS
Court of Fools has been picked up and is moving forward with The Road Pictures. We’ve got an incredible producer in Summer in the Shade‘s Kate Turner, as well as an amazing team behind the camera. We’re currently raising funds to secure the remainder of our budget – for more details see the ‘Directing’ page.
WHEN HARRY MET SATAN & DEADTECTIVE
I’ve written two horror comedies which I’m hoping to make off the back of Shed of the Dead’s (see ‘Acting’ for more details) release. One’s been optioned already this year, so fingers crossed the next 12 months will see at least one of these projects moving forward too.
I’ve started writing for ads recently too (who would have thought refocusing on making indy-movies wouldn’t be a major money earner?). I’ve been writing on a new campaign starring Danny McBride and I’m starting to freelance for a number of other companies, so if you’re in advertising and need some help on a campaign, get in touch via the CONTACT SPENCER link at the bottom of the page.
