Inspired by a true story, SeaView is an urban, supernatural drama centred around Steven – a young man destined for great things who is quietly tormented by his gifts. Steven’s cousin Chez is desperate to finally cut ties with his illegitimate business and make an honest living, but when Steven is stabbed on a night out, Chez is forced to bury a dark secret and the family begin to fall apart.
Reality shifts and the realms of possibility are called into question as Steven’s gifts suddenly appear super-human. On a mission to discover what he’s truly capable of, can Steven liberate his family from the cycle of lies, crime and violence that have ensnared them?
SeaView celebrates a Black, working class, aspirational family, exploring the challenges they face in their efforts to achieve great things.
Following an open call earlier this summer, we’re delighted to be working with six Midlands-based writers in the writers’ room for our upcoming digital TV series.
Selected from a pool of 106 hopeful applicants, the six successful writers were Daniel Anderson, Annabel Brightling, Sophia Griffin, Sam Kurd, Dave Payne, and Rory Rawson.
For the past 15 weeks, these up-and-coming local creatives have worked with script editor Sophie Ellerby and series creator Corey Campbell to develop stories for the six-part series, set to premiere in 2021.
