My Dead ClownMy Dead Clown
by David Rousculp (click for video)

Bill is at the top of his game.  He is the most admired funeral director in town.  He lives above the funeral home and hopes to buy the place when the owner retires.  This perfect world comes to a screeching halt when Bill's wife tragically dies.  Bill loses his faith and his will to live.  With no hope in sight, and struggling to keep his job, a bizarre turn of events happen happens that brings a dead professional clown to life.  Bill, thinking this is his "Pink Slip," tried to get rid of the clown, but the clown is here to stay.  This crazy clown is wound up and unpredictable.  Ironically, it is up to this clown to save the day and Bill.

Allie Chapman, a firefighter/ paramedic, is seeing to the wounded Police Officer Jake Brecker.  A spark between the couple grows and flares up as a conflict of interest when Officer Brecker applies for a position at the Fire Academy.  The Fire Chief presses for recommendations, citing the "unpredictability of fire," and the extreme danger that could arise from a firefighter who wasn't 100 percent ready and prepared.  A deadly fire leads to an investigation that consumes all involved.
