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.

The Writer: Ville Nummenpää

I'm a screenwriter and a novelist. Three official credits on IMDB (There should be a couple more, who knows who updates them?). I have one 12-ep. TV-series to my name, one stage play, four books (Two for kids, two for grown-ups), and various stints here and there. Episode here, a few sketches there, short movies and short stories, etc. I do comedy, cause I'm not funny. But why stop there. I also want to do horror, action, science fiction... in one word, entertainment. I live in Finland. Always happy to connect with like-minded, passionate story tellers, of which there are plenty here.
