Geoff the Jedi – new BBC soap
27th May 2013
Not one to turn down a challenge, I was tasked with re-writing the entire Star Wars saga as a soap – featuring as many car crashes, affairs and explosions as possible.
I brought one thing to the table that George Lucas could not quite muster with the prequels – creativity.
Geoff the Jedi is the protagonist of this gritty East End drama, also featuring Mark and Anna – classic Jedi names. Listen to arguments, pub brawls, pregnancy and explosions, all within ninety seconds. Why waste months of television time when you can do it in just over a minute?
