Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip
Rob Williams • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #431
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
A bonus treat this Friday as Pip is joined by writer of Channel 4’s new prison drama ‘Screw’, ROB WILLIAMS!
Rob of course has worked on a great amount of productions and works, but the focus this episode is the series Screw, and how it all formulated including the development and so on. The synopsis for Screw reads: “This is prison as never seen before – the uncensored, shocking and often darkly funny reality of life as a prison officer in an all-male prison in 21st century Britain” - and if that triggers your interests then this will be a perfect episode as Pip and writer Rob get deep into the mechanics and background of it all. A wide ranging chat which covers dystopian overload, teaching in prison, the lack of prison officer based shows, representation, being defined by the worst moment of your life, long running shows and the UK television framework, writing as part of a well oiled machine, writing to hooks and holding attention, Eastenders, Casualty, and loads more which will appeal to basically anyone with an interest in broadcast media. ENJOY!
