Howard Overman on Panel Borders
Panel Borders: Writing Misfits
Concluding a month of shows about writing superhero stories, Panel Borders moves its attention from the comic book page to the small screen as Alex Fitch talks to Howard Overman about Misfits, E4's award winning drama about teenagers with superpowers doing community service. Alex and Howard talk about the genesis of the show, writing episodes that engage with other genres such as time travel and 'zombie noir' and the travails of having to write characters out and introduce new ones.
