Back in September, when I was asked by AMS Pictures to work on more episodes of the docudrama show, The Price of Fame, I was absolutely thrilled to see that one of the episodes I was slated to write scripted drama and field produce for, was an episode celebrating the life and legacy of George Michael!

After an enlightening and emotional research period, I managed to secure a stellar line-up of interview contributors, including former Wham! manager, Simon Napier-Bell; Wham! backing singer Janey Lee Grace, and George's sax soloist Ed Barker. Completing the line-up was Rik Fylnn, editor of a George Michael special edition of Classic Pop magazine, and my dear friend, Zee Asha - backing singer for Culture Club. In December 2018 I returned home to London to shoot these interviews - what a treat!

I have recently finished writing the screenplay for the drama reconstruction segments of the episode and can't wait to see the amazing drama department at AMS bring George's story to life on screen.
