An Ealing film director and screenwriter is looking for co-writers and a production company to help get a new TV drama series on air.

Rob Hurtt has written a one hour screenplay of a pilot episode of ‘I Dream Of Amber Falls’ which he described as ‘a weird and wonderful, spooky soap/crime drama set in the English Lake District’.

He is to be pitching it at major UK broadcasters and is currently on the lookout for support from a London-based TV production company and is also searching for more writers to work on the series.

Rob has made a number of highly acclaimed short films including ‘The Lock Keeper’ which was described as ‘very, very dark and very funny too’ and ‘Come Outside’ which Ricky Gervais said was the strangest thing he had ever seen.

Rob said, “Ealing has such a wonderful film history and it is about time that classic, innovative and edgy films and TV are produced here once again. My work will put Ealing back on the map!”

Anyone who wishes to support the project in any way can email their interest to him at rob_hurtt@hotmail.com or call on 07936 592 411 or 07783 648 481.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
