Angelwood Pictures announced at the 2015 Angelwood Pictures’ Angel Awards that its comedy web series “World’s Worst Director” will be returning for a third season. It’s now been announced that it’s getting a whopping 20 Episode order! And that’s not the only new change. The season is currently being written by ten additional writers.
Frank O’Donnell, Mary C. Ferrara, Alexander Hauck, Audrey Noone, Jeremy Labrie, Brianna Shockley, Curtis Reid, Krystal Hall, Charlie Alejandro, and Michele Mortensen are currently hard at work writing the comedy mockumentarty series.
The web series surrounds the character Moses (Seth Chitwood) who deals with the drama of creating a film project. This season, Moses returns from New York to convince his old assistant, Katie (Mary C. Ferrara), to work with him. He is soon forced to create a short film for a prestigious film festival and thus thrown back into the local indie film world full of egos, crazies, divas, drama, and stress. Meanwhile, other problems arise in his personal life – including a competing production company.
Seth Chitwood created the series in 2012. The series ran for two seasons and was cancelled in 2013. Now, it will make a full return and is expected to premiere in September. Chitwood will also return as the creator and head writer.
