About Joe McClean

After studying Shakespeare in college, nepotism from a construction worker Uncle in NJ delivered the education that would actually keep Joe fed. Over the years, his time swinging a hammer dwindled as he studied at the Royal National Theatre, acted in touring children's theater, wrote & directed indie films (shorts and features), joined the WGA, and started a family.

Currently, Joe is in post production on Viral, written and produced by Joe, directed and starring Blair Underwood, and also starring Sarah Silverman, Jeanine Mason, and Alfre Woodard.

He's in the middle of a 2-book deal with Harper Collins Publishing, based on a pilot he wrote, for which Joe and Blair Underwood retained the rights for film and television.


The pilot for his 4-part limited series P.O.W. Story was a finalist for the Humanitas Award at the Austin Film Festival.

With a library of completed scripts and new ideas at the ready, Joe is always on the lookout for opportunities to move his pages to the screen, no matter how twisted that road may be.
