Writing for my heroes…

They say never work with your heroes.
It’s probably a good maxim in life.
Yet I’m so glad, that in one case, I did.
Working with Ciaran Morrison and Mick O’Hara aka ‘Zig and Zag’ was one of the biggest thrills of my career. They presented a show called ‘Me:TV’ and I got the honour of scripting these iconic aliens…
The thing is, most of the time, when you write a script you hope that whoever is reading it will do it justice. You pray they’ll get the jokes, pause in the right places and (frankly) not drop the ball.
With Zig and Zag I had no concerns. Rather than worrying, I’d sit back and watch these two masters of their field raise what I’d written to whole new levels.
It was absolute bliss.
