Northern Film School Student Adam Lloyd Jones joins the BBC team on 6 part TV drama 'Better'

Adam Lloyd Jones

Whilst at university I was generally struggling to find work placement.

When I contacted Film Buddy through my University it all began to change. From tailoring my CV for the right role, focusing my attention to a valid career path and encouraging to me apply for the numerous jobs Film Buddy advertises.

I then found myself being interviewed for a HETV BBC drama titled ‘Better’. The Film Buddy team, advised me on how to conduct myself through the interview and the things I should focus on and within 24hrs I had been offered a fulltime job working on the production as a PA.

I can’t thank Ben and his team enough for what the have done over the last few months and I highly recommend using this company to anyone in the film industry.

From the writers of Humans, Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, and Sister, Better is a thrilling redemption story set in Leeds, using the landscape of the city and surrounding countryside as a backdrop to what becomes an epic battle for one woman’s soul.

After a family tragedy is narrowly averted, a corrupt police detective undergoes a painful moral awakening and decides to put right 20 years of wrongdoing – but satisfying her newfound conscience won’t be straightforward. She slowly realises that her redemption will only be complete once she brings down the powerful gangster she has worked for all this time, a man she helped rise to power, and has come to love like a brother.

Better is Executive Produced by Mona Qureshi for the BBC and Jane Featherstone, Chris Fry, Lucy Dyke, Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley for Sister in association with Northern Sister.

Writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley say: “Better asks if a truly bad person can ever become good, and if so, how that could happen. The idea has been in our heads for 10 years, and we’re hugely fortunate to be telling it at last with the help of our old friends at the mighty Sister, in the great city of Leeds – and for BBC One, the perfect home for this very British story.”
