Meet Joe. He's the new Death. Not by choice, mind you, but by contractual obligation. Why? Let's just say the original Grim Reaper had a few too many before his visit with Joe and... had a bad fall. Talk about FALLing victim to your job.

It turns out Death wasn't as immortal as we all thought! Lo and behold, Joe must become the new Grim Reaper.

Or, in his case, more like the Dim Reaper.

This is the story of Joe and his new life as the new Death. It's a little dark, but you'll laugh anyways. We hope.

The tone of the show will be heavily influenced by the comedic tones of works like Seven Psychopaths, Louie, Family Guy, Derek, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Showrunner, Director

David Manuel is an Independent Filmmaker and Improviser based in Vancouver. He's an SFU Film Grad, Leo Award nominee, and all around humble guy.

He laughs at the wrong times.

Mikaela Osmak's Profile Image

Mikaela Osmak

Marketing / Social, Assistant Director

Growing up, my parents figured me for a nurse or a lawyer. They figured wrong. I ended up with a "World Literature" degree and certificates in "Being Dramatic" and "Liking All Things Artsy Fartsy... Film Included".
My days involve coffee and marketing. My nights involve improvising and the pub. My dreams involve sloths and the Millennium Falcon. My life involves comedy.

    Good idea for a pilot, this is a project that can go pretty much anywhere. Simple, funny concept.
