Award winning filmmaker Joe Wilson brings us Vampire Mob, an indie web series showcasing a hitman vampire forced to live with his mother-in-law, for eternity. The series is completely independent, getting its money strictly through audience donations; they raised over $10,000 in order to create their story.
“After losing all our money on Kickstarter, we raised the budget of $10,000 on our own site and got to make a story – no network, no company, no FCC, no sponsor – nothing to fuck it up! Just people helping people tell a story. We shot an 80-page script with 23 actors, and I’ve never worked harder making a project happen than this one! We also worked with fight choreographers Jan Bryant and Dan Speaker, who have worked on Hook, Master and Commander, and Army of Darkness.”
It was back in the summer of 2010 that we first reported on Joe Wilson's web series Vampire Mob, and now we've heard from Joe that Season Two has begun with six episodes already available, including “Dinner for Six” with cast members Kirsten Vangsness ("Criminal Minds"), Emmy winner Marcia Wallace ("The Simpsons") and Tony winner Rae Allen ("The Sopranos").
The road hasn't always been a smooth one for writer/director/editor Wilson, who told us, "After losing all our money on Kickstarter, we raised the budget of $10,000 on our own site and got to make a story - no network, no company, no FCC, no sponsor - nothing to fuck it up!

This morning, as you might have heard, the 2011 Emmy nominations were announced. But after a perusal of the list of those lucky enough to score nods, we found ourselves with questions. Lots of ‘em, in fact! Such as: Is this the first time four actors – Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Ty Burrell — from one show have been nominated in a single category? Why was PBS’ Downtown Abbey nominated in the Mini-Series category when a second season is in the works? And: Why is Cloris Leachman showing up in the Guest Actress category when »
