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 working writing the screenplay for Pirate Academy – a family adventure comedy for Gold Circle Films in LA, as well as a new stage musical based on the world’s most famous consulting detective for West End producer AP Enterprises.
For TV he recently signed a first-look deal to create (in collaboration with Paul Mendelson) three new comedies for indie producer Sly Fox Productions and helped create 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 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.
He co-wrote the BBC Radio 4 sitcom The Castle (four series) and for TV wrote several episodes of the Disney Channel musical series Groove High. Other recent TV 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 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!).
