A former Tameside College student, who is now a student and screenwriter for Netflix and the BBC, has seen his latest series become a smash hit.

Danny Brocklehurst studied A-Levels at the college, where he gained an insight into the TV industry. He went on to become a journalist for The Guardian before forging a career in screenwriting.

Danny’s latest series is ‘Safe’, a Netflix original he co-wrote alongside novelist Harlan Coben. The series, which stars ‘Dexter’ actor Michael C. Hall, revolves around a gated community in the UK and the abduction of a teenage girl.

It’s first series has a 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has received positive reviews. It’s become the latest hit in a long line of series written by Danny, such as The Driver and Shameless.

Jackie Moores, principal at Tameside College, said: “Danny has progressed amazingly over the years with his career and it shows that if you have the motivation and skills you can do anything.

“Upon seeing the work that he has produced, I hope that our students are inspired to do just as well once they leave college.”
