Tony Grisoni’s extensive screenwriting credits extend across film and television and include The Young Pope, Tideland and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.
Speaking to DQ, he reveals the origins of arguably his best-known works, Channel 4’s Red Riding trilogy and Southcliffe, which he describes as an “exploration of grief.”
He also explains his “visual” writing process and shares his thoughts on why a show’s success should not be credited simply to a writer or director.
Grisoni also teases forthcoming projects including The City & The City, based on China Miéville’s novel, and his work on Channel 4 and Amazon anthology Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams.
