About Marcus

Originally from Yorkshire, England, I presently live in Seattle. I started my career in the UK as a theatre director staging classical 16th /17th century plays in the London Fringe to 'sold out' audiences of 10 people (or often as not, one man and a dog!) Later, I started to adapt novels for the stage, while working in theatres with more numerous and comfier seats, which were actually screwed to the floor.

Adapting novels for the stage turned me onto scriptwriting and then TV Drama writing, and I have written for long-running BBC drama series ‘Doctors' and 'EastEnders’. At the moment, I work as a Story and Field Producer in non scripted TV, and I return to my first love of directing theatre whenever I can.

Inspired by my love of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, the spec TV pilot I am focusing on at present is 'HER MAJESTY'S SPYMISTRESS', a sixteenth century spy drama with a tough, headstrong female protagonist. I'm also turning the story into a novel.
