Heart in a Jar

When they aren’t being terrorized by the messy curse of motherhood, the unimaginable contradictions of marriage and the impossible quest for sanity amidst domestic absurdity, three suburban soccer moms must battle against their own sadistically evil doubles.

Personal lives are turned upside-down, marriages destroyed, careers disrupted and friendships threatened, while at the same time they must struggle to hide a bizarre and shameful secret from family and friends.

Starring Ellen Sandweiss (Cheryl), Betsy Baker (Linda) and Theresa Tilly (Shelly), the female leads of Sam Raimi’s classic cult horror film “The Evil Dead”, this twisted comedy/drama series promises a cliffhanger at every turn.

Episode 1: Linda speaks her mind and Cheryl discovers she's not alone when she's alone.

Take Your Book

Shelly greets the morning, while Linda enforces the rules.

Come With Us

Shelly teases, Linda flirts and Cheryl fantasizes.

SLUT

Cheryl and Linda worry about Shelly. And with good reason.

No Refunds, No Autographs

Cheryl pushes her book... and some buttons. Shelly drops a bombshell.

That's Not Me

Linda gets a surprise and the bumpy road takes a strange turn.

A diverse variety of eclectic interests paved the way for writer/director/producer David O’Malley to create the genre-busting web series “Dangerous Women.” Part comedy, part hyper-drama, with tantalizing doses of horror, suspense, satire, soap opera, fantasy and even sci-fi, “Dangerous Women” charts reckless forays into uncharted territory.

As the screenwriter of the film noir comedy spoof Triple Indemnity (released as Fatal Instinct by MGM/UA), David honed his humorous vision at the elbow (and funny bone) of that film’s director, comedy legend Carl Reiner. Stir in the twisted influences of Sam Raimi, Joel and Ethan Coen, Steve Martin, and Robin Williams, plus a decidedly warped fascination with Rod Serling, and you have the bizarre recipe for what has become “Dangerous Women.”

Under the pseudonym Phillip Leftfield, David recently wrote and directed Dark Honeymoon starring Daryl Hannah, Roy Scheider, Eric Roberts and Tia Carrere, which, as a life experience, was a disturbing journey through betrayal, deceit and Hollywood hell worthy of a movie itself.

He has also written and directed the feature films Mountain Man, Kid Colter and Easy Wheels… written and produced The Dread, Kalamazoo? and Edge of Honor … penned the screenplays for The Boogens, Hangar 18, House of the Dead and Beyond the Wind River…and toiled in creative servitude on numerous screenplay development deals for MGM/UA, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Walt Disney Productions and David Permut Productions, as well as for noted producers Richard Zanuck, Lawrence Turman, Joe Wizan, Greg Foster, Andrew Lazar, David Foster and Larry Brezner.

His television credits range from the fuzzy-faced “Grizzly Adams” to the fuzzy-brained Robin Williams in “Mork & Mindy” … plus numerous television movies, comedy and music specials and documentaries.

David received the Prix du meilleur Scenario by the Festival International du Film de L’Internet for his short Internet film Basic Training. He has also been honored with an Emmy Award, a Silver Medal from the Atlanta International Film Festival and the Award of Excellence for directing from the Film Advisory Board.

Now known as the Ladies of the Evil Dead, they appear at conventions and Evil Dead events/screenings and have developed a cult following of their own. For the recent release of The Evil Dead, the Ultimate Edition, the ladies produced a documentary called Life After Dead, documenting their lives as the “ladies” and featuring several guest appearances by fellow cast members and celebrity Evil Dead fans including Alice Cooper.

At the same time, Ellen resumed her film career, appearing in several films including the recently released mockumentary Brutal Massacre: a Comedy, featuring numerous cult icons including Brian O’Halloran (Clerks) and Gerry Bednob (40 Year-old Virgin), Satan’s Playground, directed by upcoming horror director Dante Tomaselli, and the soon to be released My Name is Bruce, directed by and starring her old friend Bruce Campbell. She also resumed stage acting, most recently appearing in the Detroit Jewish Ensemble Theatre production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well…

Ellen would like to thank Strike TV and her co-producer/writer/friend David O’Malley for giving her this opportunity to produce her first web series and appear on-screen again with her favorite “ladies”.

Lisamarie is no stranger to entertainment. She started performing at the age of 6 as a competitive ice skater before moving on to design school in Boston. While working as a model/actress there, she discovered a love for styling and art direction, which led to production design work for the Polaroid 20x24 camera and many photographers and filmmakers.

After moving to New York City, Lisamarie made a name for herself in New York's independent film circuit wearing many different hats, from directing to production design to script supervising to acting, for companies like Lucasfilms, Leva Film Works, Indigo Films, Time Inc, and the History Channel. She co-directed the short documentary The Little Baby Face Foundation, which aired this past spring, and is currently in post-production on her documentary film Vinnie's Rock n' Roll Boneyard.

She feels lucky to have worked on some of StrikeTV's first productions with Katherine Butterfield, Harlan Bosmajian and Larry Lerner. And from that work she was then recommended to David O'Malley and Ellen Sandweiss for work on “Dangerous Women” as a production designer . Lisamarie is grateful that StrikeTV has made her transition from New York City to Los Angeles quite enjoyable and very smooth.

In 2006 Carrie moved to Los Angeles with $300 and a 20 year old mixer. In the following 24 months she worked on projects with no budget to little budget to we sorta have a budget, and her sound package has grown with her experience on LA sets. She started out so green she was a bit yellow and now is past green and working on some shade of blue that matches certain seas in foreign lands. It's been a long hard haul but she feels so lucky to work in an industry that she loves. Carrie is a huge sound geek and loves the challenge of figuring out how to get the best sound for each shot.

Carrie now owns a nice digital sound package that grows a little with each show. Several of the projects she’s worked on have gone to festivals and won awards. Burgua dii Ebo was nominated for the Grand Jury award at Sundance in '08, Towards Darkness premiered at Tribecca in '07, Donnie & Ginger has won awards around the world and recently got distribution, and The Line has gone on to win 6 awards at 6 different festivals and was featured in American Cinematographer and Kodak's InCamera Magazine.

Carrie plans on working with sound for the rest of her life, or until her ears fall off, whichever happens first. She’s been lucky to work with the wonderful people involved with Strike TV on this project as well as on "Me First", and "Faux Baby".

In the following 24 months she worked on projects with no budget to little budget to we sorta have a budget, and her sound package has grown with her experience on LA sets.

Carrie now owns a nice digital sound package that grows a little with each show. Several of the projects she’s worked on have gone to festivals and won awards.

David O'Malley

  Series Creator  Writer  Producer

A diverse variety of eclectic interests paved the way for writer/director/producer David O’Malley to create the genre-busting web series “Dangerous Women.” Part comedy, part hyper-drama, with tantalizing doses of horror, suspense, satire, soap opera, fantasy and even sci-fi, “Dangerous Women” charts reckless forays into uncharted territory.

As the screenwriter of the film noir comedy spoof Triple Indemnity (released as Fatal Instinct by MGM/UA), David honed his humorous vision at the elbow (and funny bone) of that film’s director, comedy legend Carl Reiner. Stir in the twisted influences of Sam Raimi, Joel and Ethan Coen, Steve Martin, and Robin Williams, plus a decidedly warped fascination with Rod Serling, and you have the bizarre recipe for what has become “Dangerous Women.”

Under the pseudonym Phillip Leftfield, David recently wrote and directed Dark Honeymoon starring Daryl Hannah, Roy Scheider, Eric Roberts and Tia Carrere, which, as a life experience, was a disturbing journey through betrayal, deceit and Hollywood hell worthy of a movie itself.

He has also written and directed the feature films Mountain Man, Kid Colter and Easy Wheels… written and produced The Dread, Kalamazoo? and Edge of Honor … penned the screenplays for The Boogens, Hangar 18, House of the Dead and Beyond the Wind River…and toiled in creative servitude on numerous screenplay development deals for MGM/UA, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Walt Disney Productions and David Permut Productions, as well as for noted producers Richard Zanuck, Lawrence Turman, Joe Wizan, Greg Foster, Andrew Lazar, David Foster and Larry Brezner.

His television credits range from the fuzzy-faced “Grizzly Adams” to the fuzzy-brained Robin Williams in “Mork & Mindy” … plus numerous television movies, comedy and music specials and documentaries.

David received the Prix du meilleur Scenario by the Festival International du Film de L’Internet for his short Internet film Basic Training. He has also been honored with an Emmy Award, a Silver Medal from the Atlanta International Film Festival and the Award of Excellence for directing from the Film Advisory Board.

Trained as a stage actress and singer with numerous live performance credits, Ellen took an extended hiatus from full-time acting to pursue simultaneous careers as mother of two and non-profit administrator. In recent years, she also worked as a personal growth and professional development seminar leader for a national seminar company. Last year, after sending her youngest off to college, she promptly moved from Detroit to LA to embark on part two of her entertainment career.

Best known for her role as Cheryl, a.k.a. the monster in the cellar or the “tree-rape chick” in Sam Raimi’s cult classic The Evil Dead, Ellen started making appearances in 2001 with her fellow Evil Dead actresses and “dangerous women”, Theresa Tilly and Betsy Baker. Now known as the Ladies of the Evil Dead, they appear at conventions and Evil Dead events/screenings and have developed a cult following of their own. For the recent release of The Evil Dead, the Ultimate Edition, the ladies produced a documentary called Life After Dead, documenting their lives as the “ladies” and featuring several guest appearances by fellow cast members and celebrity Evil Dead fans including Alice Cooper.

At the same time, Ellen resumed her film career, appearing in several films including the recently released mockumentary Brutal Massacre: a Comedy, featuring numerous cult icons including Brian O’Halloran (Clerks) and Gerry Bednob (40 Year-old Virgin), Satan’s Playground, directed by upcoming horror director Dante Tomaselli, and the soon to be released My Name is Bruce, directed by and starring her old friend Bruce Campbell. She also resumed stage acting, most recently appearing in the Detroit Jewish Ensemble Theatre production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well…

Ellen would like to thank Strike TV and her co-producer/writer/friend David O’Malley for giving her this opportunity to produce her first web series and appear on-screen again with her favorite “ladies”. Oh, and check out another great Strike TV series called Anyone but Me – Ellen’s daughter Jessy Hodges, now an actress in New York, plays the character Sophie.

  "Simone"

Jennifer Ann Massey was born in Houston, Texas and raised in the suburbs right outside of the city - Pearland to be exact. As a child she loved to be dared to cry at slumber parties. She always obliged while thinking of her puppy dying or anything else somber. Loving the affect she had on her friends, she fell in love with acting. Not thinking this was a real job, she went back to jumping on the trampoline and forgot about acting for a while.

Soon after graduating from high school, her life took a different turn when she was asked to move to NYC to model. It is a career that has taken her all over the world. Realizing this wasn’t a so-called real job either, she decided to move to LA to study acting. She has since landed roles in several pilots and series, including roles on “Two and a Half Men”, “CSI:Miami”, “That 70’s Show”, “Monk”, and “The West Wing.” Her movie credits include the soon-to-be-released drama Mindsight and The Jinn.

In her spare time she enjoys eating, sleeping and watching movies. She is also working diligently on some self-diagnosed phobias: Logizomechanophobia (fear of computers), Mycophobia (fear or aversion to mushrooms), Rhytiphobia (fear of wrinkles), and Pteronophobia (fear of being tickled by feathers).

  "Janitor"

Who says actors are dumb? Tim grew up working on cars, building houses and blowing up toys with fireworks. ...ok, maybe a LITTLE dumb... After landing a lead role at age five, Tim’s love for acting was sparked. He went on to land lead roles in his high school plays and even won a state championship for a One-Act.

After high school, he decided to get a “real” job and graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He went to work at NASA as the Shuttle Orbiter Medical System (SOMS) Engineer at Johnson Space Center. Six months later, he went back to night business school at the University of Houston and received his M.B.A. with emphasis in finance and management.

Even while his career at NASA was going great, Tim couldn’t stay away from acting. He began to book leads in feature films in the Houston area. Nothing else could thrill him like working on a film set. When he could no longer delay the inevitable, Tim put in his notice at NASA, and moved to New York in 2004.

Tim’s stay in the City was regrettably short. Even though he loved every moment of it, from Broadway to Opera in the Park, he realized that he had to move to LA to fully pursue a professional film acting career. So in 2005, Tim moved to Los Angeles.

Since moving to Los Angeles, Tim has been making waves on television and film, with credits including a lead in the soon-to-be-released film Mindsight, and the role of Gunther in the TV show “Passions”. He continues to study acting on a weekly basis and realizes that he can never fully “arrive” as an actor. He feels very blessed to be working with incredible casts and crews and is humbled by every set.

It's been a long hard haul but she feels so lucky to work in an industry that she loves. Carrie is a huge sound geek and loves the challenge of figuring out how to get the best sound for each shot.

Carrie now owns a nice digital sound package that grows a little with each show. Several of the projects she’s worked on have gone to festivals and won awards. Burgua dii Ebo was nominated for the Grand Jury award at Sundance in '08, Towards Darkness premiered at Tribecca in '07, Donnie & Ginger has won awards around the world and recently got distribution, and The Line has gone on to win 6 awards at 6 different festivals and was featured in American Cinematographer and Kodak's InCamera Magazine.

Carrie plans on working with sound for the rest of her life, or until her ears fall off, whichever happens first. She’s been lucky to work with the wonderful people involved with Strike TV on this project as well as on "Me First", and "Faux Baby".

A diverse variety of eclectic interests paved the way for writer/director/producer David O’Malley to create the genre-busting web series “Dangerous Women.” Part comedy, part hyper-drama, with tantalizing doses of horror, suspense, satire, soap opera, fantasy and even sci-fi, “Dangerous Women” charts reckless forays into uncharted territory.

As the screenwriter of the film noir comedy spoof Triple Indemnity (released as Fatal Instinct by MGM/UA), David honed his humorous vision at the elbow (and funny bone) of that film’s director, comedy legend Carl Reiner. Stir in the twisted influences of Sam Raimi, Joel and Ethan Coen, Steve Martin, and Robin Williams, plus a decidedly warped fascination with Rod Serling, and you have the bizarre recipe for what has become “Dangerous Women.”

Under the pseudonym Phillip Leftfield, David recently wrote and directed Dark Honeymoon starring Daryl Hannah, Roy Scheider, Eric Roberts and Tia Carrere, which, as a life experience, was a disturbing journey through betrayal, deceit and Hollywood hell worthy of a movie itself.

He has also written and directed the feature films Mountain Man, Kid Colter and Easy Wheels… written and produced The Dread, Kalamazoo? and Edge of Honor … penned the screenplays for The Boogens, Hangar 18, House of the Dead and Beyond the Wind River…and toiled in creative servitude on numerous screenplay development deals for MGM/UA, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Walt Disney Productions and David Permut Productions, as well as for noted producers Richard Zanuck, Lawrence Turman, Joe Wizan, Greg Foster, Andrew Lazar, David Foster and Larry Brezner.

His television credits range from the fuzzy-faced “Grizzly Adams” to the fuzzy-brained Robin Williams in “Mork & Mindy” … plus numerous television movies, comedy and music specials and documentaries.

David received the Prix du meilleur Scenario by the Festival International du Film de L’Internet for his short Internet film Basic Training. He has also been honored with an Emmy Award, a Silver Medal from the Atlanta International Film Festival and the Award of Excellence for directing from the Film Advisory Board.

Ellen Sandweiss

  "Cheryl"  Producer

Trained as a stage actress and singer with numerous live performance credits, Ellen took an extended hiatus from full-time acting to pursue simultaneous careers as mother of two and non-profit administrator. In recent years, she also worked as a personal growth and professional development seminar leader for a national seminar company. Last year, after sending her youngest off to college, she promptly moved from Detroit to LA to embark on part two of her entertainment career.

Best known for her role as Cheryl, a.k.a. the monster in the cellar or the “tree-rape chick” in Sam Raimi’s cult classic The Evil Dead, Ellen started making appearances in 2001 with her fellow Evil Dead actresses and “dangerous women”, Theresa Tilly and Betsy Baker. Now known as the Ladies of the Evil Dead, they appear at conventions and Evil Dead events/screenings and have developed a cult following of their own. For the recent release of The Evil Dead, the Ultimate Edition, the ladies produced a documentary called Life After Dead, documenting their lives as the “ladies” and featuring several guest appearances by fellow cast members and celebrity Evil Dead fans including Alice Cooper.

At the same time, Ellen resumed her film career, appearing in several films including the recently released mockumentary Brutal Massacre: a Comedy, featuring numerous cult icons including Brian O’Halloran (Clerks) and Gerry Bednob (40 Year-old Virgin), Satan’s Playground, directed by upcoming horror director Dante Tomaselli, and the soon to be released My Name is Bruce, directed by and starring her old friend Bruce Campbell. She also resumed stage acting, most recently appearing in the Detroit Jewish Ensemble Theatre production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well…

Ellen would like to thank Strike TV and her co-producer/writer/friend David O’Malley for giving her this opportunity to produce her first web series and appear on-screen again with her favorite “ladies”. Oh, and check out another great Strike TV series called Anyone but Me – Ellen’s daughter Jessy Hodges, now an actress in New York, plays the character Sophie.

Most recently, she appeared in Haymoon Productions' Witches' Night, and Brutal Massacre: A Comedy, with her Evil Dead pals Ellen Sandweiss and Theresa Tilly.

Her TV commercials include ads for Sears, Big Boy, Dramamine, Bank of America, Comcast, and more.

Betsy was a nationwide public speaker for Chevrolet, and also narrated auto shows for many years, opening car doors and showing off fine leather interiors and ergonomically correct handles.

She has performed with “Musicana” at The Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach, Detroit Opera Company, and The Greg Purcott Trio in Detroit. Betsy is currently showing off her singing and comedy skills with her one-woman cabaret shows in New York at The Duplex, and LA's Gardenia.

Jennifer Ann Massey

  "Simone"

Jennifer Ann Massey was born in Houston, Texas and raised in the suburbs right outside of the city - Pearland to be exact. As a child she loved to be dared to cry at slumber parties. She always obliged while thinking of her puppy dying or anything else somber. Loving the affect she had on her friends, she fell in love with acting. Not thinking this was a real job, she went back to jumping on the trampoline and forgot about acting for a while.

Soon after graduating from high school, her life took a different turn when she was asked to move to NYC to model. It is a career that has taken her all over the world. Realizing this wasn’t a so-called real job either, she decided to move to LA to study acting. She has since landed roles in several pilots and series, including roles on “Two and a Half Men”, “CSI:Miami”, “That 70’s Show”, “Monk”, and “The West Wing.” Her movie credits include the soon-to-be-released drama Mindsight and The Jinn.

In her spare time she enjoys eating, sleeping and watching movies. She is also working diligently on some self-diagnosed phobias: Logizomechanophobia (fear of computers), Mycophobia (fear or aversion to mushrooms), Rhytiphobia (fear of wrinkles), and Pteronophobia (fear of being tickled by feathers).

While working as a model/actress there, she discovered a love for styling and art direction, which led to production design work for the Polaroid 20x24 camera and many photographers and filmmakers.

She co-directed the short documentary The Little Baby Face Foundation, which aired this past spring, and is currently in post-production on her documentary film Vinnie's Rock n' Roll Boneyard.

She feels lucky to have worked on some of StrikeTV's first productions with Katherine Butterfield, Harlan Bosmajian and Larry Lerner. And from that work she was then recommended to David O'Malley and Ellen Sandweiss for work on “Dangerous Women” as a production designer . Lisamarie is grateful that StrikeTV has made her transition from New York City to Los Angeles quite enjoyable and very smooth.

Best known for her role as Cheryl, a.k.a. the monster in the cellar or the “tree-rape chick” in Sam Raimi’s cult classic The Evil Dead, Ellen started making appearances in 2001 with her fellow Evil Dead actresses and “dangerous women”, Theresa Tilly and Betsy Baker. Now known as the Ladies of the Evil Dead, they appear at conventions and Evil Dead events/screenings and have developed a cult following of their own. For the recent release of The Evil Dead, the Ultimate Edition, the ladies produced a documentary called Life After Dead, documenting their lives as the “ladies” and featuring several guest appearances by fellow cast members and celebrity Evil Dead fans including Alice Cooper.

At the same time, Ellen resumed her film career, appearing in several films including the recently released mockumentary Brutal Massacre: a Comedy, featuring numerous cult icons including Brian O’Halloran (Clerks) and Gerry Bednob (40 Year-old Virgin), Satan’s Playground, directed by upcoming horror director Dante Tomaselli, and the soon to be released My Name is Bruce, directed by and starring her old friend Bruce Campbell. She also resumed stage acting, most recently appearing in the Detroit Jewish Ensemble Theatre production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well…

Ellen would like to thank Strike TV and her co-producer/writer/friend David O’Malley for giving her this opportunity to produce her first web series and appear on-screen again with her favorite “ladies”.

  "Simone"

Jennifer Ann Massey was born in Houston, Texas and raised in the suburbs right outside of the city - Pearland to be exact. As a child she loved to be dared to cry at slumber parties. She always obliged while thinking of her puppy dying or anything else somber. Loving the affect she had on her friends, she fell in love with acting. Not thinking this was a real job, she went back to jumping on the trampoline and forgot about acting for a while.

Soon after graduating from high school, her life took a different turn when she was asked to move to NYC to model. It is a career that has taken her all over the world. Realizing this wasn’t a so-called real job either, she decided to move to LA to study acting. She has since landed roles in several pilots and series, including roles on “Two and a Half Men”, “CSI:Miami”, “That 70’s Show”, “Monk”, and “The West Wing.” Her movie credits include the soon-to-be-released drama Mindsight and The Jinn.

In her spare time she enjoys eating, sleeping and watching movies. She is also working diligently on some self-diagnosed phobias: Logizomechanophobia (fear of computers), Mycophobia (fear or aversion to mushrooms), Rhytiphobia (fear of wrinkles), and Pteronophobia (fear of being tickled by feathers).

Lisamarie is no stranger to entertainment. She started performing at the age of 6 as a competitive ice skater before moving on to design school in Boston. While working as a model/actress there, she discovered a love for styling and art direction, which led to production design work for the Polaroid 20x24 camera and many photographers and filmmakers.

After moving to New York City, Lisamarie made a name for herself in New York's independent film circuit wearing many different hats, from directing to production design to script supervising to acting, for companies like Lucasfilms, Leva Film Works, Indigo Films, Time Inc, and the History Channel. She co-directed the short documentary The Little Baby Face Foundation, which aired this past spring, and is currently in post-production on her documentary film Vinnie's Rock n' Roll Boneyard.

She feels lucky to have worked on some of StrikeTV's first productions with Katherine Butterfield, Harlan Bosmajian and Larry Lerner. And from that work she was then recommended to David O'Malley and Ellen Sandweiss for work on “Dangerous Women” as a production designer . Lisamarie is grateful that StrikeTV has made her transition from New York City to Los Angeles quite enjoyable and very smooth.

In 2006 Carrie moved to Los Angeles with $300 and a 20 year old mixer. In the following 24 months she worked on projects with no budget to little budget to we sorta have a budget, and her sound package has grown with her experience on LA sets. She started out so green she was a bit yellow and now is past green and working on some shade of blue that matches certain seas in foreign lands. It's been a long hard haul but she feels so lucky to work in an industry that she loves. Carrie is a huge sound geek and loves the challenge of figuring out how to get the best sound for each shot.

Carrie now owns a nice digital sound package that grows a little with each show. Several of the projects she’s worked on have gone to festivals and won awards. Burgua dii Ebo was nominated for the Grand Jury award at Sundance in '08, Towards Darkness premiered at Tribecca in '07, Donnie & Ginger has won awards around the world and recently got distribution, and The Line has gone on to win 6 awards at 6 different festivals and was featured in American Cinematographer and Kodak's InCamera Magazine.

Carrie plans on working with sound for the rest of her life, or until her ears fall off, whichever happens first. She’s been lucky to work with the wonderful people involved with Strike TV on this project as well as on "Me First", and "Faux Baby".

David O'Malley

  Series Creator  Writer  Producer

A diverse variety of eclectic interests paved the way for writer/director/producer David O’Malley to create the genre-busting web series “Dangerous Women.” Part comedy, part hyper-drama, with tantalizing doses of horror, suspense, satire, soap opera, fantasy and even sci-fi, “Dangerous Women” charts reckless forays into uncharted territory.

As the screenwriter of the film noir comedy spoof Triple Indemnity (released as Fatal Instinct by MGM/UA), David honed his humorous vision at the elbow (and funny bone) of that film’s director, comedy legend Carl Reiner. Stir in the twisted influences of Sam Raimi, Joel and Ethan Coen, Steve Martin, and Robin Williams, plus a decidedly warped fascination with Rod Serling, and you have the bizarre recipe for what has become “Dangerous Women.”

Under the pseudonym Phillip Leftfield, David recently wrote and directed Dark Honeymoon starring Daryl Hannah, Roy Scheider, Eric Roberts and Tia Carrere, which, as a life experience, was a disturbing journey through betrayal, deceit and Hollywood hell worthy of a movie itself.

He has also written and directed the feature films Mountain Man, Kid Colter and Easy Wheels… written and produced The Dread, Kalamazoo? and Edge of Honor … penned the screenplays for The Boogens, Hangar 18, House of the Dead and Beyond the Wind River…and toiled in creative servitude on numerous screenplay development deals for MGM/UA, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Walt Disney Productions and David Permut Productions, as well as for noted producers Richard Zanuck, Lawrence Turman, Joe Wizan, Greg Foster, Andrew Lazar, David Foster and Larry Brezner.

His television credits range from the fuzzy-faced “Grizzly Adams” to the fuzzy-brained Robin Williams in “Mork & Mindy” … plus numerous television movies, comedy and music specials and documentaries.

David received the Prix du meilleur Scenario by the Festival International du Film de L’Internet for his short Internet film Basic Training. He has also been honored with an Emmy Award, a Silver Medal from the Atlanta International Film Festival and the Award of Excellence for directing from the Film Advisory Board.

W. Gregory Turner’s music has been heard in a variety of productions ranging from films and television shows to videogames and interactive entertainment. A graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA), his interest and experience in a wide range of styles and genres has served him well throughout his career.

In television, Greg has worked on such shows as ‘Matlock,’ ‘Jake and the Fatman,’ and MOWs such as ‘To Sir with Love, Pt. 2’, directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring Sydney Poitier. His work in the video game industry spans over 100 titles including ‘Iron Man,’ ‘Casper: Friends Around the World,’ ‘Land Before Time: Return to the Great Valley,’ ‘Dragon Rage,’ and ‘Army Men: Air Attack II,’ as well as several titles featuring Elmo, Big Bird and the cast of Sesame Street. Greg was also chosen to score one of the first ‘serious’ games entitled ‘Re-Mission,’ which was featured in Wired Magazine.

Greg’s recent work includes scoring the films ‘Holyman Undercover,’ ‘Waiting to Pop the Question’ and ‘The Wheel,’ as well as creating and designing the sound and composing the score for the realtime audio adventure ‘Soul Trapper’ for the iPhone. This ground-breaking application represents an industry first – the audio-only videogame, and has been hailed as the first game to feature ‘Triple-A Audio.’

‘Dangerous Women’ represents the first collaboration between Greg and the show’s creator David O’Malley, both natives of Battle Creek, Michigan (where they lived a few miles apart, but did not know each other.) Greg now lives in Thousand Oaks, CA with his wife of 24 years, Laura, and their 18 year old son Michael. (Greg still lives a few miles from David – but now does know him!)

Lisamarie is no stranger to entertainment. She started performing at the age of 6 as a competitive ice skater before moving on to design school in Boston. While working as a model/actress there, she discovered a love for styling and art direction, which led to production design work for the Polaroid 20x24 camera and many photographers and filmmakers.

After moving to New York City, Lisamarie made a name for herself in New York's independent film circuit wearing many different hats, from directing to production design to script supervising to acting, for companies like Lucasfilms, Leva Film Works, Indigo Films, Time Inc, and the History Channel. She co-directed the short documentary The Little Baby Face Foundation, which aired this past spring, and is currently in post-production on her documentary film Vinnie's Rock n' Roll Boneyard.

She feels lucky to have worked on some of StrikeTV's first productions with Katherine Butterfield, Harlan Bosmajian and Larry Lerner. And from that work she was then recommended to David O'Malley and Ellen Sandweiss for work on “Dangerous Women” as a production designer . Lisamarie is grateful that StrikeTV has made her transition from New York City to Los Angeles quite enjoyable and very smooth.

  Sound Recordist

In 2006 Carrie moved to Los Angeles with $300 and a 20 year old mixer. In the following 24 months she worked on projects with no budget to little budget to we sorta have a budget, and her sound package has grown with her experience on LA sets. She started out so green she was a bit yellow and now is past green and working on some shade of blue that matches certain seas in foreign lands. It's been a long hard haul but she feels so lucky to work in an industry that she loves. Carrie is a huge sound geek and loves the challenge of figuring out how to get the best sound for each shot.

Carrie now owns a nice digital sound package that grows a little with each show. Several of the projects she’s worked on have gone to festivals and won awards. Burgua dii Ebo was nominated for the Grand Jury award at Sundance in '08, Towards Darkness premiered at Tribecca in '07, Donnie & Ginger has won awards around the world and recently got distribution, and The Line has gone on to win 6 awards at 6 different festivals and was featured in American Cinematographer and Kodak's InCamera Magazine.

Carrie plans on working with sound for the rest of her life, or until her ears fall off, whichever happens first. She’s been lucky to work with the wonderful people involved with Strike TV on this project as well as on "Me First", and "Faux Baby".

It is so great to see the Evil Dead girls again. This show needs to be made into a prime time series!

badgn (21st July 2009)
ROFL! I love this. You seriously need to get this made into a show on tv, a movie, something. These mini shows are phenominal. Hurry up already and make some more. I'll pass this along to everyone I know. Maybe it will help.

When will there be more episodes? I need to see what happens!

It was a pleasure meeting you ladies!

asho89 (15th March 2009)
HILARIOUS! The first few were slow but these last few episodes have been amazing. Ellen Sandweiss yelling at that old woman was incredible. More!!!

Carlos A Selmonosky (5th March 2009)
Great, wish it became an established TV series.
Looking forward to non ending future episodes

flimfrik (4th March 2009)
just caught up! I am loving this series...

Ellen Sandweiss (2nd March 2009)
We Dangerous Women just want to thank you all for watching our series and especially for your wonderful and witty comments.

We've reached the final episode, FOR NOW. So what's next? Well, this is when the real work begins: please keep passing this link around and help us increase our views so that some company out there will decide to sponsor us, enabling us to make more episodes and eventually answer that question we know is burning in your mind: when do the Dangerous Women start kicking some ass? Stay tuned....

Andrew Eisen (1st March 2009)
I'm really digging the three leads. They're an absolute hoot to watch! Not sure where the plot is going to go but that's just part of the fun. Doppelgangers? Clones? Evil twins? Pod people? Well, probably not that last one. Very much looking forward to more. Keep it up!

LantzALot (1st March 2009)
Still lots up in the air. I surely hope there are more episodes to come.
