Team Kitaab is in conversation with writer and screenwriter Derek Judge where he speaks about life as a writer and his recent releases under a joint pen name.
Derek Judge grew up in the UK where he was active in student theatre, serving on the Oxford University Dramatic Society committee, and producing and acting in plays in Oxford and the Edinburgh Fringe. After a detour via London, Manchester, and Sydney, Derek settled in Singapore where he continued his part-time interests in performing arts and creative writing.
In 2009, Derek graduated from a screenwriting course conducted by Oscar-winning writer Pamela Wallace and Emmy-nominated writer Ellen Sandler. He devised and successfully pitched the concept to Mediacorp for Point of Entry, a 1-hour TV drama that ran for four series. He then wrote episodes for Point of Entry, Silver Lining, Incredible Tales, In Cold Blood, for Mediacorp, and The Paranormal Zone, for Syfy.
