CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

William Callaway, (late 20s-30s). News Reporter, Seat One, for SLWK News. Dating the Weathergirl (Heather). The most established member. A genial man built of pride and a weakness for temptation. Sees himself as a bit of a father figure.

Matt Booker, (20s-30s). News Reporter, Seat Two, for SLWK News. “Playing the field”. “Suave”, “smooth”, “sophisticated”. Everything Callaway wishes he could be, besides the burning alcoholism. A great connoisseur of one-upmanship and a bit of a prat.

Heather Wilson, (late 20s-30s). Weathergirl for SLWK News. Dating Will Callaway. Loving, intelligent and seductive. She is the constant thorn for Booker, with an acid tongue and a motherly streak. A great believer in getting even.

Maisie Hawthorne, (20s). Cue Card Writer for SLWK. Employed when the autocue broke three months ago, the youngest of the team. Wants to be in a relationship with Dan. Sweet, enthusiastic, but a little insecure, an overly-positive ball of energy who tries to hold the team together. Anxiety ridden.

Daniel Jones, (20s). Off-Site Reporter. Wants to be in a relationship with Maisie. Quiet off-camera and a little awkward, the often forgotten member of the studio. Close friends with Jessie, which may cause problems in his romantic pursuits… Should he ever make any.

Jessie Fletcher, (20s-30s). Floor Manager at SLWK. Presumed single. Studious and a perfectionist to the mark. A little closed-off, but not afraid to get things done. The second longest serving member of the team. Subtle as a brick. Work focused. A bit of a mystery.

Esme Blake, (30s-40s). Station Manager. Single by choice. Omnipresent in spirit, but rarely physically, with the temperament of a bulldog chewing a wasp. Brash, blunt and unforgiving. A woman of high heels and talon-esque nails who ultimately wants the station to succeed (and a payrise).
