Airing on Prime Time tonight....! So I just heard some pretty crazy news. About 3 and a half years ago me and
@kylieflavell decided we wanted to make a TV show. Neither of us had much clue about how to use a camera and we'd just started watching a few Youtube videos on how to edit, but we'd figure all that stuff out on the way. And so off we marched to Brick Lane to buy a whole bunch of vintage clothes and props to decorate our set. The set was my living room (overdue apologies to my old housemate @marcjacquesburtonpersonal who had to endure this madness for 3 months) and the show was to be a silent cooking comedy set in 1950's Naples (what else?!) And so it began. An entire summer of weekends spent acting out the parts of two Italian lovers who meet, fall in love, marry and go through 20 episodes of Sophia Loren / Marcello Mastroianni style melodrama. The highlight must have been me playing the part of my Italian mother complete with full length dress. Nobody can ever say I take myself too seriously (!). That we completed the show was a triumph over adversity. Who the hell were these two beginners who thought they could make a show on a shoestring? As ever 'the establishment' turned up their noses. But as ever, we wouldn't be deterred and after endless hours of editing @kylieflavell brought her vision to life (and has since become one of the most talented filmmakers I have ever known). Well anyway, we sold that show to @tlntv in Canada and tonight it premieres in Prime Time! I swear if this doesn't prove that you can make the most unbelievable dream come true then nothing does. You just decide exactly what you want, you ignore every single person who says it can't be done and then you just work relentlessly until it becomes reality. Simple. Well done @kylieflavell I'm so proud of you.
