Central Film School Industry Filmmaking Diploma alumna Hildegard Ryan is co-writing and directing a new short-form drama series - Overshadowed - for BBC Three, produced by Kay Mellor's production company Rollem Productions.

Described as "compelling, haunting and funny", the eight episodes will tell the story of a young Irish vlogger called Imogene (Michelle Fox) whose life spirals out of control when she meets the monster of anorexia personified.

The series is based on the stage play by Ryan's co-writer Eva O'Connor, and will stream on BBC Three in ten eight-minute episodes.

Kay Mellor is a screenwriter and producer of series like Fat Friends, In The Club and The Syndicate. She wrote:

“I am delighted to be championing Eva O'Connor and Hildegard Ryan who have something really important to say.”

We're really excited to see our alumni go from strength to strength, and eagerly anticipate Overshadowed launching soon.
