Notes

WRITING CREDITS Chum has been asked by Jungle Entertainment to be in a writers’ room and develop a show with them later this year, having also worked with them as an actor in such projects as TV series Moody Christmas (also on FOX in the US) and No Activity. Chum is currently in development with Scooter Braun Productions, creators of FX's number 1 show, Dave. A passionate advocate for diverse storytelling, in 2016, Chum was selected to be part of a panel discussion with US network TV execs at the SAG Foundation in LA, as a representative of the ABC (US) program on cultural diversity programs within the networks hosted by Adam Moore, head of diversity SAG-AFTRA. This took place with a live audience, and was live-streamed around the US, Australia and New Zealand. His writing scene "Duende" was selected for 2015 ABC Diversity showcase, Los Angeles and New York showcase. Chum previously developed projects in the US with Jim Parsons and Eric Norsoph at That's Wonderful Productions (Big Band Theory, Young Sheldon), Renate Radford at Elizabeth Banks' Brownstone Productions (Pitch Perfect) and Max Broude at Sarah Silverman's Jash Media.
