About these projects, Patrick Harney said:
Half Blood is a series that will be on Amazon Prime created by Melisa Sandlin, and directed by Tony McCants. I play Nicholaus who is the brains of the operation. Filming for the pilot will be happening toward the beginning of this year.
Locker 42 is also a Vigilant Entertainment Production as well as an AxeFin Production. Written by Nolan Bryand and Jeff Kapp, and Directed by Jeff Kapp, I’m acting and producing on it. I’ll be starring in it as Officer Conlan along side a cousin of mine Axel Harney who will be playing Detective Hayes. It’s a crime drama that I can’t wait to get started on! Axel and Shane Schanski are producers on it as well. The plan is to start production toward the end of the year!
The Denny Dooley Story is directed by Aaron Russman and is expected to be released toward the end of the year. I play a small part who is the lead vocalist and guitar player named Chick who leads Chick and the Ravens. It takes place in the late 60s-Early 70s. Also, for The Denny Dooley Story, there is original music in it and my I’ll be singing a song that’s my bands song. We will be recording that song this year.
Electron Blade. A TK2 Films production. Created by Callie Bussell and Tommy Kraft, the pilot is being finished by Tommy so it can be pitched. I play a philosophical stoner named Sindricus, (somewhat channeling my inner Matthew McConaughey) who doesn’t speak much, but when he speaks, it’s important. The release date of the pilot is still unknown at this time.
And then finally, Debutante is a short film by Ryan Cole also starring Courtney Green, Joe Gaskill, and Kristin Vandermeer. That’s expected to release this year as well.
