BiographyHistory

Script-writer and script editor.

Glen Dolman's earliest television scripts were for the animated children's series Flipper & Lopaka, a Yoram Gross production in which the titular dolphin befriends a young Polynesian boy after saving him from drowning. Dolman followed this with scripts for several more children's and young-adult television programs: in 2000 alone, he wrote scripts for horror-themed puppet show Li'l Horrors; animated sequel to the successful Jonathan M. Shiff Productions ecological science-fiction series Ocean Girl, The New Adventures of Ocean Girl; and the animated children's show Gloria's House. In 2001, he wrote for entreprenurial drama Head Start, in 2002 for starting-over drama Always Greener, and in 2004 for young-adult science-fiction series Silversun: he also served as script editor for both Head Start and Silversun.

Somewhere around 2004, Dolman relocated to the UK. Between 2004 and 2005, he worked as script editor on long-running British police procedural The Bill. He followed this with work on long-running and award-winning Irish medical drama The Clinic, for which he was also script editor (2006-2007) and British children's series My Spy Family (2009).

In 2007, he was script editor on Alison Nisselle's bio-pic Curtin, and in 2010 wrote his own political biopic, Hawke, for which he won an AWGIE award and was nominated for both an AFI Award and the New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards.

His most recent scripts are for the Fergus Hume adaptation The Mystery of a Hansom Cab (2012) and High Life (2017). He has also served as script editor for Irish TV series The Clinic and for Parer's War.

In 2018, it was announced that he would write six-part series Bloom for Playmaker Media, to be directed by John Curran, in his television debut: the series will follow a devastating flood and the appearance of a mysterious plant that can restore youth.
