Bishop Shoots Improv Pilot

Bishop Improv is Marshall Givens, Julia Wackenheim-Gimple, Tom Christensen, Jaime Moyer, & Clayton Froning

My improv team, Bishop, just shot a super fancy pilot for the web.  You can see us here in studio in front of the green screen.  I had a blast working with the very capable cast and crew, and can’t wait to do it again!

Highlights definitely include Clay smashing Taco Bell into my face for 5 minutes straight, playing the Kardashians’ dog, and working with dynamo Chelsea Heath.

The cast includes me, Marshall Givens (Bloodsucking Bastards), Julia Wackenheim-Gimple (God Particles), Jaime Moyer (2 Broke Girls), & Clayton Froning (Teen Wolf).

New Reel

Several of my projects from 2009 are mired in post-production, but the footage marches on in my demo reel. You can see the video here, on the Reel page (http://Reel.Tom-Christensen.com), or on YouTube. Enjoy!

The Start-Ups is the latest and greatest production from Lord Dynamite Films. The improvised pilot stars the core ensemble from Lord Dynamite, which made the feature film Thanks for Dying earlier this year.

The series centers around loosely organized criminals in Los Angeles, brought together by the current economic downturn. I play Lars Gunderson, an ex-special forces soldier who is out of his element in civilian life.

Release TBD.

The cast of The Start-Ups includes, but is not limited to:

Peter Berube
Tom Christensen
Anne Flanagan
Clayton Froning
Tyler Jolley
Eden Malyn
Kayla Morissey
Jeff Perkins
Mark Pinckney
Jill Slattery
Elizabeth Triplett

The film was written and directed by Peter Berube, and co-produced by Peter Berube and Danny Shelby
