The Story

Haunted by the memory of seeing his parents murdered in a car bomb, Gabriel Bishop wrestles with the news of his brother’s engagement to the daughter of the man he believes is responsible for his parents’ death.

Dangerous Deeds is a short film about two rival families, the Bishops and the McCarthys, and the events that connect them. Gabriel Bishop, fueled by his anger and hatred of David McCarthy, the man he believes was behind the murder of his parents, vows to take vengeance on the McCarthy family. But when his brother becomes engaged to David’s daughter, Gabriel must make a choice between revenge and hate for the McCarthys or his love for his brother.

From the short film, we hope to launch Dangerous Deeds into a powerful, high-stakes TV drama series that will explore even deeper into themes of revenge, justice, forgiveness, courage, PTSD, mental health, etc. Our hope is that this short film will help to build interest and an audience for the series and serve as a proof of concept for potential distributors and investors.

The Team

Brad Sells (Creator)

For as long as I can remember I have always had a desire and passion to create my own television show. As a Christian counselor and life coach for the past 11 years, I knew the themes I dreamt of in my head could be helping and healing to individuals and families like the ones I counsel.

As we all know the world stopped in 2020 and for the first time in my life, I had nothing but time to dig into some great entertainment and pour out my passion into a script. This project is a calling on my life and that includes my mission is to entertain and teach life moments through art.

In 2017, she met her manager, Willie Johnson with J3 Productions, at a local runway show. He helped her get her start back into modeling and commercial acting. After a lot of prayer, she quickly knew that God was leading her away from her degree and to make the leap to follow her passion. She is now signed with The Campbell Agency in Dallas for acting/modeling. 

Outside of her career, Alisha is a member of Personal Powerhouse (a women’s faith in film group) as well as mentoring several young women into modeling/acting with integrity and grace. She thanks God for giving her with an opportunity to help others on whatever set she is on.
