A few years ago I sold my TV format to Talpa Media and it’s been sitting on John de Mol’s shelf ever since. Who knows, maybe one day soon he’ll take it off that shelf, blow the dust off and actually produce it. The Voice was on his shelf for 3 years before he decided to share it with the world so I remain hopeful. In the meantime, they liked my writing style and impressive, (and sort of embarrassing) knowledge of all-things-television and asked me to join their team as a writer and translator. Below is an example of some of the copy I wrote for their program catalogue.
