Now in its fifth year, B3 Media seeks diverse artists for its 2017 edition of TalentLab - an innovative creative development programme aimed at BAME artists, writers, creative producers, and filmmakers who are ready to take their careers to the next level.
B3 Media is a leading media arts network that understands the importance of representative storytelling. TalentLab 2017 helps diverse artists take their careers to the next level by transforming raw ideas and stories into outstanding projects through workshops and individualised support. The programme also enables participants to gain greater exposure and recognition in their fields via carefully curated networks with a list of industry mentors.

He was also Executive Producer and co-writer on the successful Netflix series The Get Down, created by director Baz Luhrmann and Pulitzer-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis.
