So doing an online series is on my list of projects to create. But coming up with an online series, the daunting task of picking a genre some what haunts me. I watch a lot of television shows that range from comedy, drama, horror, pretty much everything. One of my favorite shows is Supernatural, and while watching the show I realized something. Being an actor on that show is the best job security an actor can have.
Why? Because it is a show centered around magic and the supernatural world, it doesn’t stick to natural laws. How many times has a character died and came back to life. Or the fact that Heaven, Hell and Purgatory is actual sets on the show. So even if the character was to get killed off, we actually get to see them because those places exist within the show. We even get to see characters that did not have deep storylines but was a figure of importance early on in the series, get to become a complex character.
Prime example is Dean and Sam’s mother. She was always a figure of importance as she was the reason Sam, Dean and their father continued to hunt, but she died episode one. Now in season 12 she is getting to grow her character Mary.
So as an actor, it would be best to be casted on a show like Supernatural because no matter how many times your character dies, you always have a chance to come back in some sort of capacity. Allowing the actors to still get steady work and letting the writers keep the same characters circulating while growing the story.
So when it comes to the series I make; something sci-fi is a possibility to give me that creative freedom to break natural laws. And shoutout to Supernatural going into it’s 12th season!
