She is co-writer on SISTERS – produced by Sleeper Films and Cineman (Angeli worked with Sleeper on THE FAVOURITE), Angeli is writing an adaptation of the Clare Chambers best seller SMALL PLEASURES and has written a TV series WATCHING BIRDS – an original idea about birding and predatory love.  She is producing two projects – a feature by writer Rebecca Lenkiewicz (SHE SAID, IDA), which is set in 10th century Norway and a Trinidad-set epic drama based on the novel THE WHITE WOMAN ON A GREEN BICYCLE by Costa award winning writer Monique Roffey. This very recent move into creating her own projects and with talented people she admires, Angeli is able to focus on the stories that express her passionate commitment to diverse and inclusive storytelling, especially highlighting women’s voices.
