Fiona Seres has worked extensively within the Australian television and film industries and in recent times, expanded her profile to include the UK. She created and wrote The Silence for the BBC which aired in July 2010 to a record audience of almost 5 million viewers and extraordinary critical acclaim in the press:
‘The Silence is a vastly superior four-part thriller’ –The Times, ‘Fiona Seres’ tremendous tale’ – The Sunday Times, ‘taut, tense, well acted and smartly written’ – Arts Desk.
Fiona co-created the Australian series Tangle for Showtime, a story of two generations of two families colliding, connecting – sometimes at cross purposes – as they navigate their way around love, sex, money and politics. The series was nominated for five Logie Awards (Golden Globe equivalent), including Most Outstanding Drama Series, and several AFI Award nominations including Best Television Drama Series. Fiona was nominated for a NSW Premier’s Literary Award for her work on the show. She also wrote multiple episodes of the award-winning series Love My Way (series 1, 2 and 3) and was Head Writer on Dangerous starring Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom) for Southern Star. She is currently writing on a new series with Southern Star, Puberty Blues, based on the novel by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette.
Her projects in the UK include an adaptation of The Lady Vanishes which will air on Boxing Day 2012 BBC1 and in development are: Diamond, a three part serial with Shine for the BBC, Trust a 4 part thriller and One Big Happy, a family drama serial with Clerkenwell for the BBC.
