Shawn Piller #FFF Friday Favourite Four

Posted: June 28, 2013

It’s Friday and we're putting the finishing touches on another wonderful week with an extra-special edition of our fun feature that takes the #FF one 'F' further...and shakes up Twitter's popular acronym with a SABS twist.

The Sea and be Scene #FFF is your weekly chance to discover the four favourites of your favourite East Coast folks. The four questions will always stay the same... only the folks will change and this week…

We're throwing the spotlight on a fella who's used to working behind the scenes on everything from feature films to hit TV shows.  Producing, executive producing, creating, writing, directing - this man has done it all...incredibly well!

This USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate has put his degree to great use with projects that include include...

Stephen King’s DEAD ZONE starring Anthony Michael Hall - The series debuted June 16, 2002, on the USA Network and it was Dead Zone, Wildire, Greekthe highest-rated premiere in cable history. The show ran 6 seasons and is now syndicated globally.

ABC Family’s hit series GREEK - In 2007, he, along with partner Lloyd Segan, executive-produced the series which was ABC Family’s highest rated series ever. GREEK ran for a remarkable 6-season cable cycle and brought the network unprecedented new viewers.
