RICK DANFORD - SHOWRUNNER/DIRECTOR
Tampa's own Rick Danford is the Creator of the show and looks to put something together that will not only be entertaining but also provide a lot of talented people he has had the good fortune of meeting a chance to display their talents. Much like many other series' DAWN AND THE DEAD will feature a concept and a story line conceived by Mr. Danford, but he will not be directing every episode. Instead he wants to help bring some talented directors to the forefront and give them a chance to work together to bring the most out of this show. He'll direct the pilot episode which he wrote himself and then he intends to bring others in to not only direct other episodes but also to help write the scripts so they get a chance to add their own flavor to the show, while sticking to the overall series arc.
