Dead Set at Comeback

“He´s dead, but tell that to his ego”

It sucks being dead. Tommy Steele had it all, and now he´s but a ghost of himself. Literally. For a while, he was the hottest star of Hollywood, and it seemed he could do no wrong.

Most people feel the dead should stay on their own side. Tommy won´t hear of it, he is determined to make a comeback.

This is the pilot, series bible available on request.
