FESTIVALS & AWARD SEASON – A Very Tactical Time

It’s that time of year for the entertainment industry: AWARD SEASON! When a bunch of people tell a bunch of other people that they did some good work. Pretty much every industry has something like this, architects, salespeople, bankers… they all do it. It’s only the folks in entertainment who put it all over your TV since, well, they control your TV.

And it’s been a damned exciting season for Tactical Girls! With a film festival run well underway, our indie comedy series has already started racking up some accolades and taking home some hardware: Tactical Girls won “Best Tv/Web Series” at the prestigious Canada Independent Film Festival in Montreal!

On top of that, Tactical Girls won “Best Performance” Canadian Emmy Award at the Canadian Screen Awards for Melissa D’Agostino’s charming and alarming performance as Dougy!

And the very same week of the CSA award presentation, Tactical Girls also screened as official selection at the Seattle WebFest! What a month!!

You can watch the first season of Tactical Girls on Amazon Prime, and there’s lots of exciting news coming up, so keep your eyes here for updates!

“TACTICAL GIRLS” An Absurd Combat/Comedy

Over the past two years, I’ve been writing one of the funniest, wackiest, most absurd scripts I’ve ever worked on, and I’ve been working on it with two incredible co-writers: Melissa D’Agostino & Diana Bentley.

And this summer, we’re finally putting this series on the screen.

Office01

Starring My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘s incomparable Maria Vacratsis, Orphan Black‘s hilarious Kristian Bruun, the spectacularly funny Ted Dykstra, and Nicole Stamp, along with the multi-talented Melissa D’Agostino and Diana Bentley, “Tactical Girls” is the story of three women who can’t stand the horrendous boss of the trucking company they work at, and so to vent their frustrations they go on tactical missions together.

What the F#@K is “TACTICAL GIRLS”?

My new comedy mini-series, “Tactical Girls” just wrapped secondary photography, and we’re closing in on our post-production goals. It’s wacky, it’s mad-cap, it’s hilariously crass and violent.

Watch my co-creators, Diana Bentley and Melissa D’Agostino explain it:

SIX DAY ROAD – Episode Zero

“When two sworn enemies awaken in the snowy wreckage of an avalanche, their only hope for survival lies in reconciling their differences.”

This is a single episode of a 9-part Post-Apoclayptic Western series that plays in the same univierse as Six Reasons Why. I made it with some very talented folks: Melissa D’Agostino, Caden Douglas and Marco Timpano.

I hope you dig it!
