My friend Ed wrote an insanely cool original web series called Angel of Death that debuts today on Crackle.
Angel of Death stars Zoe Bell (who you've seen double all kinds of people, but probably didn't know it. She also spent much of Death Proof riding around on the hood of a car being awesome) as an assassin who "gets stabbed through the skull; she survives, but the head injury leaves her with an awkward side effect: She suddenly develops a conscience."
Ed talked to Hero Complex (one of the best comic/sci-fi/geek blogs on all of the 'tubes) about the show:
He said the plot was inspired by medical reports he saw about a Texas man who walked into an emergency room with a hunting knife jutting out of his skull.
"Then I had this image of this assassin standing, like, in a doorway holding a gun with a knife sticking out of the top of her head and blood trickling down her face," Brubaker said. "They green-lit it before I even wrote it, and they started filming two weeks after the final draft. I guess that's the world we're living in right now."
Ed is awesome. His Incognito and Criminal are two of my favorite comic series, ever, he made me want to read Captain America (then made me a fan), and his The Man Who Laughs is a must-read for Batman geeks.
