Location:  

The Development and Alumni Relations Team is delighted to welcome Mickey Down (Class of 2007) for a virtual talk about his experiences as a writer and co-creator of the acclaimed drama Industry. The show aired on HBO as well as BBC2 in late 2020 and has been commissioned for a second season.

Hear about the writing process, moving from finance into a creative career; pitching work to TV executives, and how to re-create a trading floor on an industrial estate in Cardiff! You'll have a chance to ask questions too!
 
Watch Industry, an eight-part series following a group of ambitious graduates vying for a permanent job in a fictional investment bank. (The show contains strong language, sexual content, and drug use)
 
This event is free to attend though donations to the City of London School Bursary Fund are welcomed.
