Clare is excited to work with imaginative and hungry writers who have a true passion for telling stories. She currently works with DHA authors across every genre and some brilliant scriptwriters in drama, children’s (animation and live action) and comedy.

She is actively looking to work with more writers of drama and dramedy, across a broad spectrum. In particular she is drawn to contemporary human stories of community and culture which speak to who we are today, crime and thriller, and grounded speculative drama (but please no epic space wars or high fantasy). Scripts should always have a really clear voice and be rooted in authentic and fleshed out characters but she loves a strong narrative driver.

Some of her favourite TV series have been The Outsider, Unorthodox, I May Destroy You, Fleabag, Chernobyl, Black Mirror, The Sinner, This is England, Ozark, Misfits and Happy Valley. On the comedy side, recent TV favourites have been What We Do In The Shadows and This Country. Favourite films of all time are Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Oh Brother Where Art Thou.
