Washington, Mar 27 (ANI): Troubled rocker Pete Doherty is reportedly in talks to write a TV drama.
According to reports, producers at the BBC are certain that Babyshambles hitmaker would be able to use his experience with substance abuse, and battle with addictions to heroin and cocaine, in writing the drama.
“They want a pilot episode written in the next six weeks which will become a series, if he can come up with the goods,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling British tabloid The Sun.
The producers are said to be confident that Pete has a creative side, and would be able to write a terrific drama.
“BBC bosses think Pete has a creative streak that will produce some gritty TV. He’s seen it all as a hellraising rock star, so they want his experiences written in,” the source added. (ANI)
