In 2015, Allan appeared in the HBO mini-series Show Me A Hero, written by David Simon and Bill Zorzi, and directed by Academy-Award winner Paul Haggis. A true story, the series takes place in Yonkers, NY in the 1980s, when a federal court order forced Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Isaac) to build low-income housing in white neighborhoods, a decision that would ruin his political career and divide the city. Allan plays Edward Fagan, one of the defiant members of the Yonkers city council.
Highlights as a television writer include an episode of the CBS drama Michael Hayes, co-written with John Romano and named a TV Guide “Editorʼs Choice”; an episode of CBSʼ Family Law co-written with Paul Haggis; an episode of the NBC show, The Black Donnellys, and in 2015, 100 Code, co-written with Robert Moresco.
Allan has written and directed three short films. The Syndicate, a comedy, received the Audience Award for Best Short Film at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The Fence, a drama, received an Honorable Mention at CineVegas. And Vicʼs Café, a musical.
