THE SLATE

Ali’s English

Determined to assimilate into his new country, Ali, a Syrian refugee, refuses to speak the truth about Casey, a racist bully at his school, only for the teenagers to become friends. And in the end only he can help unite a divided community by speaking his truth about the power of friendship. Ali’s English is based on Marcus Markou’s award winning short film Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times and unpacks similar themes of prejudice and friendship.

 

Ali’s English is set to shoot Summer 2020 in North Yorkshire and cast are attached.

Crazy Blue

A forgotten boy band star suffering a mid-life crisis is forced to re-evaluate his life choices when he takes in a rap-loving teenager and his rag tag family. Through this unexpected act of charity William finally finds the family he was missing, and learns that life can start again.  

 

Crazy Blue is an uplifting feature film celebrating unconventional family units and second chances. It is written by Marcus Markou, the filmmaker behind UK indie hit Papadopoulos and Sons. The script is in the final stages of development and we are currently attaching cast.

Papadopoulos! - The Musical

Working alongside pop and rock music composer John Themis and theatre director Tania Azevedo, we are developing the stage musical version of indie film hit Papadopoulos & Sons. We staged a hugely successful industry workshop presentation of the show in November 2019.

 

The show is a heart-warming, funny and uplifting musical experience showing a family reconnecting.

Oxford Blues

We are developing a TV reboot of the cult 1984 indie hit Oxford Blue’s. The series is a bang-up-to-date comic look at contemporary student life, about a dim American jock who cheats his way in to Oxford University to woo a British teen movie star. With a focus on unashamedly entertaining and romantic storylines within a diverse and eclectic group of internationally drawn students, the series light-heartedly explores the social anxieties and stories that are pertinent to University students today. A witty and subversive new comic drama with broad international appeal and an enduring cast of loveable (and indeed loathable…) winning characters, Oxford Blues is the next big binge-able hit for millennials and Generation X alike.

The project is at treatment stage and is written by the critically acclaimed writer and lyricist Jake Brunger.

Details of further projects to follow soon.
