The Yard - By Alex Jones and Kate Dean
Stage Play & Film by Alex Jones
Unproduced TV Drama series, co-written with the playwright Kate Dean.
Set in the spectacular countryside of the Wye Valley, cradled in the lee of the Malvern Hills, The Yard is a comedy drama series concerning the setting up of a livery yard: the diversification project of Jude, a struggling dairy farmer and his fecund wife Eve. It is an earthy cocktail of the many different class types that live and work in our rural landscape – think Monarch Of The Glen meets Shameless. The series is written by two established multi award winning national and international writers, Alex Jones and Kate Dean. Kate herself is currently running a livery yard from a dairy farm, and has extensive knowledge and access to farming sources. Alex has worked on local farms and has a teenage daughter who has a horse on Kate's livery yard. This series will be unique, hard-hitting, but funny and always totally realistic.
