ACTING DEAD Now Available for Streaming on Amazon
Acting Dead, a web series created by Brian Beacock and produced by Beacock, Susan Bernhardt, Paul Nygro, and Leonian Pictures, is now available for streaming at Amazon.com. Access is free for Amazon Prime members.
A 'Zom-Com' which has gleefully been described as Shaun of the Dead meets Arrested Development, Acting Dead tells the story of Tate Blodgett (Beacock), a down on his luck, unemployed actor, who after being turned down for role after role, decides to take matters into his own hands and become a Zombie so he can finally get work in the many Zombie movies and television shows being made. Along the way, as things aren't working out so well, he meets Alex Carboneux (Jillian Clare), a former child star whose temper has stalled her career. Alex decides
to take matters into her own hands, which doesn't work out so well either.
In 2016, actress Patrika Darbo won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy Series (the inaugural award in that category). Brian Beacock and Susan Bernhardt are known for their earlier web series, the critically acclaimed McCracken Live! (Beacock) and Miss Behave (Bernhardt). Along with Beacock and Clare, Acting Dead boasts a wide array of talent including series regulars Chris Galya, Patrika Darbo, Paul Nygro, and John Yelvington. Season One guest stars are Debbie Gibson, Eric Martsolf, Carolyn Hennesy, Sean Kanan, John J. York, Cocoa Brown, Christine Lakin, Lori Alan, Erin Matthews, Gary and Larry Lane, Peter Allen Vogt, Sheila Sheila, Mitch Silpa, and Jacee Jule.
Season Two of Acting Dead is currently in production for an early 2018 release. Brian Beacock is repped by Heather Provost at Provost Entertainment.
