Oscar winning movies, Emmy-nominated TV shows – Paul Alexander has watched them all. But occasionally he opens his laptop and does a bit of writing.
Paul is currently writing a screenplay for Gold Circle Films in LA. He also recently signed a first-look deal to create (in collaboration with Paul Mendelson) three new comedies for indie producer Sly Fox Productions.
Paul’s current solo projects include the ongoing development of a new action-comedy for CBBC – Yo Ho High – and creating new standup material with (and for) Jasper Carrott.
Paul recently wrote, in collaboration with Thom Southerland and Irving Berlin(!) a brand new musical The Smallest Show on Earth, which toured the UK at the end of 2015.
Other current projects include writing a new musical with lyricist Penny Lane and composer Glenn Keiles (who did the music for Paul’s TV show My Spy Family) – who Paul previously collaborated with on a children’s musical, The Girl Who Saved Christmas.
He co-wrote the BBC Radio 4 sitcom The Castle (four series) and wrote several episodes of the Disney Channel musical series Groove High. Other recent work includes BBC sitcom Life of Riley, and Nickelodeon’s Summer in Transylvania. He also co-created the Dreamworks Animation TV series Neighbors from Hell (for TBS).
He spent a year writing for Emmerdale and created, script-edited and wrote half the four-season 48 episode run of the family sitcom My Spy Family for Cartoon Network (their first ever live action sitcom). He also script-edited series two and three of John Sullivan’s The Green Green Grass.
His screenplays include Staggered, which he also co-produced (and which picked up three awards including Best Film at the 14th International Festival Du Comedie at Vevey, Switzerland) and Seeing Double (the S-Club movie!).
