Title: Three Sumner Tales: TV scripts based on the Sting endorsed biography 'A Sting in the Tale' (TV scripts)
Author: James Berryman
ASIN: B00BLV58S6 
RRP: £2.03 (variable as an ebook)
Publication date: 26 February 2013

James Berryman has created a remarkable work of par excellence in creating three TV scripts (Three Sumner Tales) based on his best-selling biography ‘A Sting in the Tale’, the only ever authorised version on Sting’s life from the time he was simply known as Gordon Sumner to when he became Sting the rock-star. The adaptations of these scripts are in a distinctive style that distinguishes his work from others that are superficially similar. 

The joy of life and living in the 1960 and 1970s is the mainstay of these amazingly humorous scripts. Featuring life-long friends since their schooldays, Sting and James Berryman, these scripts not only reveal Sting’s early ambitions, but also uncover the fabric of the rise and further rise of Sting. In fact, a montage of what was yet to come.

Certainly, Sting was already in the making when Jim (as Sting calls him) Berryman shows us the ‘coolness’ of how Sting dressed and behaved, along how he respond appropriately to his strong desires to become ‘famous’ even before he became frontman for The Police. 

Each of these scripts by James Berryman is a tour-de-force, and delivered with a polished wit that could be compared to the creative writing style of John Sullivan. Jim Berryman’s script writing genius brings to each one of the 30 minute TV sitcoms a touch of class in terms of comedy writing that is side-splittingly funny and in the tradition of TV’s ‘Only Fool’s and Horses’, ‘Dad’s Army’ and ‘Fawlty Towers’. 

The highly structured storylines in ‘Three Sumner Tales’ are served with a dash of slapstick that has been tenderly crafted. The storylines chronicles their highs and lows in life, in particular Sting’s attempts to get famous and Jim’s to become rich. 

Already well known as the writer of the successful book ‘A Sting in the Tale, Jim Berryman is now steering more and more to the sitcom genre of writing. 

Jim Berryman and Gordon Sumner, also known as Sting the rock star, is as highly an unlikely friendship as there could ever be. From when they were both first year pupils at a rather austere Catholic school for boys, they have remained friends for over 50 years!
