This is an interesting list:
Worth looking at carefully to see what the USP might be in each case…..
It's a salutary exercise to look through this list and ask what the USP might be in each case. Anything by Julian Fellowes is wonderful. Popular and even perennial themes involve posh people doing silly posh things, quirky troubled detectives solving crimes, poor people having a hell of a tough time, young people coping with rites of passage, etc.
Our project migh be suffering a bit -- in a negative way -- from the Poldark effect. Commissioners may think On Angel Mountain is too similar — same period, same rough coastal landscape etc. Poldark is doing its last season this year — and although the BBC has hyped it up, it's success has not been spectacular, and while there has not been a big fall-off in viewing figures, many critics and outside observers have started to feel bored. By all accounts, the actors have been bored too, and have wanted to go off and do other things.
