Also…here is my latest photo and bio:
Bill’s debut feature, Runaway, premiered to universal accolades at Tribeca and Toronto. It went on to take the top prize at the prestigious Austin Film Festival and was subsequently released by eOne Films. Last year, Bill signed on to collaborate with his longtime mentor, Tony-winning and Oscar-nominated Mark Medoff, to adapt Medoff’s play, The Wager, for TV. Most recently, he is in development with Emmy Award-winning More/Medavoy Productions on Hope Springs, an original one-hour family drama. Nikki Deloach (MTV’s Awkward) is attached to star, and the project is currently under consideration by a major cable network. He has also been in development with Echo Lake Entertainment’s TV division (SyFy’s Van Helsing) on Way Beyond, an original one-hour drama set in the world of the commercial space race, which is currently out to networks. He’s been a featured panelist, moderator and pitch competition jurist at the Austin Film Festival screenwriters conference and Scriptfest/The Great American Pitchfest. In addition to his work in Hollywood, Bill is Faculty-in-Residence for screenwriting at the acclaimed Scottsdale School of Film+Theatre.
