press release



On September 22nd, 2018, the second episode of the original comedic web series My Death Co. will be released. The series follows a recently deceased man, Sam (Jon Huck), as he’s forced to work as a grim reaper in the afterlife. Sam has to learn to connect with and bring closure to those on the brink of death and, in doing so, finds meaning in his own (after)life. Created by Shawn McDaniel and Ben Hammond as a method of depicting loss in a more positive light, My Death Co.’s dark humor stands out and invokes a sense of hope in dark times. Directed by McDaniel and scripted by Hammond, episode two was shot at the Workaholics house in Van Nuys, CA and stars Huck alongside Marem Hassler, who debuts in her role as Janice Pemberton, the head of My Death Co.

Along with the release of episode two, My Death Co. is participating in the Middle Coast Film Fest in Chicago, Illinois from September 21-23. Jon Huck has been nominated for best actor in a short, and the team hopes he can bring home the award to add to the list of accolades the series has received so far. Accolades include winning Best Film at the New York City Popup Film Festival and monthly winner of the Miami Indie Film Festival for May 2018.

“My Death Co.” lead Jon Huck has appeared in Comedy Central’s “This is Not Happening” and “Live at Gotham,” as well as MTV’s “Punk’d,” NBC’s “Superstore” and CBS’s “Angel From Hell”. He will also appear later this year in “Hidden in the Heart of Texas: The Official Hide and Go Seek Documentary”.
