What happens when you are the Grim Reaper?
Well, you are probably getting to know a lot of death or dying people, right? And if you want to have a Talk Show to make a living for yourself? Well… you probably don´t get many guests (from the living).
There´s probably Felicia Day and Joss Whedon to thank most for this whole Webseries bonanza going around the Internet, populated as it is now with many many web series (mainly comedy, but there´s everything if you look enough). Some of them arenot making it, some of them are hits, and some of them are just starting the process of evolution into a bona fide web success. Same as in regular TV Shows and series, that can be succesful, cancelled, have good or bad reviews. The big difference is web series don´t get the luxury of the lead in, and have to grow their own audiences from scratch.
Here, at Seriesandtv.com I´m trying to do my best to help, and therefore offering this space to all those webseries creators that may be around to help put the voice out about their shows.
In this one, Sandra Payne takes us on a fun ride into the life of Death (strangely as it seems) while we accompany the Grim Reaper on his struggles to produce a Talk Show of his own.
The series stars Tom Konkle (from Safety Geeks: SVU and Invention with Brian Forbes) he also improvs. And Sandra is (as often happens on WebSeries) Creator/Producer/Director.
The Talk Show is called: Ask Grim: Rappin´with the Reaper, and it features the Grim Reaper and his episodic guests (Well, he doesn´t get guests to come, but answers people questions).
The title song is called Rap Me Girl by Dmitry Lifshitz.
Show started on October 2010 when they launched for the first time with a Grim Reaper in some sort of a Russian Accent. And we get to see the Grim Reaper answering some viewers questions.
