Fabian Chaundy commissioned for Chilean TV
Current UEA undergraduate Fabian Chaundy has been commissioned to write almost half the episodes for the tenth season of a popular children's TV show in Chile. Fabian is in the third year of his BA in English Literature with Creative Writing, having spent his gap year in Chile, where he secured a position with MEGA TV, a major national TV company, as a translator. He worked as a simultaneous interpreter on live TV, and adapted the Chilean version of Fox Entertainment's gameshow 'Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader'. MEGA TV then offered him the position of subtitler for children's series 'BKN', an award winning show in the style of 'Glee' or 'S-Club 7'. Fabian has now written original episodes for the show since season 7, and will be responsible for 14 out of the forthcoming season's 30 episodes.
