Hi – my name is Steve Roberts and I’m new here. As requested, I’m introducing myself, as someone who would like to join the forum. Now retired from public life, I am diving into writing a screenplay for a TV series with two collaborators, and I’m here to learn what I can.
For anyone who’s interested, the screenplay is centred around a true story and is a historical drama set in the early 19th century. Currently working on a step outline before embarking on dialogue, I’m passionate about the story which reveals a world where women were subjugated to the will of powerful men, treated as disposable by government, and where money made more money in the midst of utter poverty and deprivation. So not very different from our own times.
Looking forward to engaging with the community here.
