For our first Writer’s Room of the year we explore developing stories for a particular actor.
2013 brings us three new TV series – all of which have developed their story and script around their lead actors.
Agent Anna (TVNZ) starring Robyn Malcom, The Blue Rose (TV3) starring Siobhan Marshall and Antonia Prebble both premiered on television this month, and later this year new series Harry (TV3) will hit the small screen, starring Sam Neill and Oscar Kightley.
Join actor Robyn Malcom (Agent Anna), writer/producer Rachel Lang (The Blue Rose) and producer Steven O’Meagher (Harry) as they talk to Gavin Strawhan (Nothing Trivial) and look at all sides of the process when developing characters for specific actors.
Stay afterwards for a drink and a slice of pizza on us.
Drinks 7pm, 7.30 Start, Tuesday 26 February, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, Auckland, $5 koha appreciated.
