Based on a short play written by Keilly, Playing Dead follows Grace, an out-of-work actress that lands a part-time job as Death. To pay the bills, Grace agrees to be the grim reaper’s little helper. Taking each assignment to escort someone to the other side proves to be harder than it looks and Grace suddenly finds herself breaking all the rules in order to get the job done.

Recognized by millions of fans for his roles in sci-fi and horror flicks, Raimi has starred in numerous film and television projects including USA Network’s “Xena Warrior Princess,” all three Spider-Man movies, Adam Sandler’s Reign Over Me, and the newly released Drag Me to Hell.
