"THE MODERN WAY" is a tv series in development. I have been writing notes for this series since 2015. I have been writing the episodes since 2017 and I am currently on the 4th and final episode of Part one of the series. I have such a clear vision of how I want the series to pan out and be brought on to our television screens.

The story is inspired by True events and is based around a young Mod named Terry Harrison. Terry embarks on a journey through the 1980s Modernist subculture during his twenties. His journey is one that sees him becoming one of the most respected and successful Mods of his era . Clashing with Rockers , Skinheads , Soulboys , other Mods and some East End Gangsters. His journey to the top is by far an easy one. The story starts off in 1979 ,Raised in a poor working class household on a council estate in south west London. Terry lives with his mum and half sister Debbie as well as his alcoholic/ gambling addict step father Jim. Now 1982 and Forced to leave his family home at sixteen due to an argument which spiralled out of control between him and his step father , Terry gets taken in by one of his best freinds ,Peter Archer's parents, Richard and Pamela Archer. Who Terry forms a very close bond with and eventually sees them as his true mum and dad. During the time he stays there him and his three other School/ Mod friends Peter Archer , Graham Castle and Eddie Earnshaw form a close friendship with fellow Mods Barry Taylor , John Miller and Charlie Reed after a fight brakes out with some Rockers at a school friends house party. During this time the boys work at "Steves Wheels" a warehouse that specialises in cleaning Lorry wheels. Terry manages to get Barry , John and Charlie a job there and all the boys start working there full time once they have all left school. Now 1986 and Terry is running "Steves Wheels" Along with Barry and Peter whilst the others are working elsewhere . Terry gets caught up in some criminal activity which soon finds its way into his personal life . Affecting not only him and his friends but also the love of his life, his high school sweetheart Lacey Simmons.

With an incredible soundtrack that really sets the time of the story and an era which really was about the music , fashion and violence . This is a story that has humour , heart warming moments between friends and family , tragedy and violence.

I am starting off by searching for my Main characters for this project . I want to get a head start before pitching the story. So if this is something you think you would be interested in and you fit the bill for one or maybe more than one of these characters then please by all means apply .

Pay will be discussed when up and running.
