THE AFTER WARDSIn development (2018)
I’ve followed and encouraged Pete Jordi Wood’s work for some years now. He is a terrific writer who has worked tirelessly both for his family and his talent. Like Pete himself, ‘The After Wards’ is funny, sweet, fragile, telling and true. Deeply rooted in the harsh realities of post-industrial Cornwall it nevertheless takes flight into a delightfully absurd, sexy and strange world all its own.
– Mark Gatiss, Author, Actor and Screenwriter
Pete is currently adapting his forthcoming, debut novel THE AFTER WARDS for the screen with producers Tom Bidwell (My Mad Fat Diary, Watership Down) and Emma Burge (Shameless, The Village). The After Wards is a contemporary coming-of age story about a group of teenagers ageing out of the care system, having been rehomed in a remote coastal resort in Cornwall.
