Marlon and Daniel are two working class writers who grew up together in South London. Their debut was the critically acclaimed Channel 4 drama series RUN for which they went on to win the RTS Award for Best Drama Writer and the BAFTA Television Craft Award for Breakthrough Talent.

Marlon and Daniel have since been commissioned to write GAIJIN, a period action drama based on the true story of a black samurai in 16th century Japan for Paramount, with Matt Reeves (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) executive producing. This is alongside RED STAR, an original sci-fi story being written for Warner Bros. with Braden Aftergood (Wind River, Hell Or High Water) producing.

Recently they have written for Sky Atlantic’s highly successful, award winning show SAVE ME as well as co-creating, with Ronan Bennett (Top Boy), a TV series based on the 2010 sci-fi film MONSTERS which is due to go into production later this year with Channel 4.
