Web Series ACTING DEAD Wins Four Indie Series Awards

Acting Dead, a web series created by Brian Beacock and produced by Beacock, Susan Bernhardt, and Paul Nygro, won four Indie Series Awards (ISA) at the sixth annual ceremony, held on April 1 at the historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, CA. Acting Dead is the semi-dark tale of the world of Hollywood Zombies in which actors Tate and Alex, trying to get cast in any number of ever-growing zombie-based TV shows and movies, actually become ... zombies.

Nominated for 10 ISAs, Acting Dead took home four: Best Writing for a Comedy (Beacock), Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Galya), Best Guest Actor in a Comedy (Vogt), and Best Comedy Series. The ceremony was hosted by Acting Dead's own Eric Martsolf.

Brian Beacock and Susan Bernhardt are known for their earlier web series, the critically acclaimed McCracken Live! (Beacock) and Miss Behave (Bernhardt). Acting Dead, a 'Zom-Com' which has been gleefully described as Shaun of the Dead meets Arrested Development, features Beacock, Jillian Clare (Alien Abduction), Chris Galya (Disney's Jessie), Patrika Darbo, Nygro, and John Yelvington. There are guest appearances by (in alphabetical order) Lori Alan, Cocoa Brown, Debbie Gibson, Carolyn Hennesy, Sean Kanan, Christine Lakin, Eric Martsolf, Mitch Silpa, Peter Allen Vogt, and John J. York.

Acting Dead may be seen on JTS.TV or at www.actingdead.com. The production team is now preparing the second season and will be appearing at festivals and conventions throughout 2015. Facebook.com/Acting Dead Twitter.com @actingdead
