Anthony Mariani's Tv Pilot : THE DEARG DUE (THE RED THIRST) has made The Red List: #1 Horror Television (One-hour) in the past month. Top 3 % of all projects on Coverfly. Top- 20 All-time one-hour TV. Top 2 % All- Horror projects. Top 5% All one-hour TV projects. Top 20 One-hour Horror TV for the year. THE BLACK LIST "The premise, which is sort of Promising Young Woman meets Quantum Leap with some adult Hocus Pocus vibes, is a pretty interesting amalgamation. And calling it such is in no way meant to imply that it's not unique; on the contrary, the somewhat strange mixture is decidedly unique and an intriguing read."
DEAD NAME, an original pilot written by Audrey Webb, has won numerous awards, the latest of which is finishing in the Top 10 Mystery/Crime/Thriller category for the Table Read My Screenplay Genre Competition. "For many years, I volunteered as a victims services counselor, arriving at crime scenes with first responders," says Webb. "I witnessed first-hand how male officers were expected to behave more stoically than their female counterparts in the face of violent crime. I wrote DEAD NAME in response. It's a story of a homicide detective who has experienced her career from two very different worlds and now must try to reconcile them. Callie Davis explores her world with humor and intellect, and her discoveries hold truths for us all."
