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 developing a new comedy/musical TV show for Lime Pictures. He has also been commissioned by Gold Circle Films to turn the comedy-with-music he wrote for them last year (From Me to You, currently in preproduction) into a stage show.
Also for the stage he is developing a new musical based on the world’s most famous consulting detective for West End producer AP Enterprises.
And for the big screen, he is writing a rollicking family-adventure screenplay (Pirate Academy) for Gold Circle Films.
Other TV ventures include signing a first-look deal to create (in collaboration with Paul Mendelson) three new comedies for indie producer Sly Fox Productions and other stage ventures include recently helping create some new standup material with (and for) Jasper Carrott.
His other current stage work includes development of Henry – A Killer New Musical based on the career of America’s first serial killer.
He also recently created – 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.
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 TV 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!).
