Clare is assisted by Emmanuel Omodeinde.
She works with scriptwriters in drama, comedy/drama and children’s (animation and live action) and well as a number of DHA’s authors, from debut novelists through to household names.
Clare is excited to work with imaginative and hungry script writers in all mediums who have a true passion for telling stories we haven’t seen yet. She is particularly drawn to those who have ambitions to write for television and to create series which are contemporary, original and commercial, with complex characters and emotional development at the heart but which are elevated dramatically. Glimpses into less explored territories and societies and stories with a socio-political bent, as well as commercially viable genre eg thrillers, ghost stories, speculative/near future/grounded scifi/reimagined worlds (not outer space) are all of interest.
She is not currently taking on pure comedy writers but is always keen to look at dark comedy and comedy drama (with an emphasis on the drama).
Some of her favourite recent(ish!) TV series have been Unorthodox, Annika, Happy!, Severance, Inside Number 9, Sweet Tooth, Des, The Looming Tower, Manhunt, The Great, Slow Horses, The Outsider, Am I Being Unreasonable, and Kevin Can Go F**k Himself.
