Maxine Fleming

Writer

Maxine Fleming created or co-created the Emmy-nominated Being Eve, Agent Anna (starring Robyn Malcolm) and black comedy Burying Brian. The former journalist began her scriptwriting career when soap Shortland Street launched in the early 90s. Fleming has gone on to write for Outrageous Fortune, small town drama Mercy Peak, and Cliff Curtis mini-series The Chosen.

I feel very lucky to have collaborated with some of the best TV writers in the business to make some great shows over the years.  Some times when I'm sitting around a storylining table laughing my head off (or occasionally getting teary), I can't believe I get paid to do this stuff. Maxine Fleming
