B.T. Calloway - creator, head writer
After completing filming Dave Plus One, while the rest of the crew did something useful, Ben went to work writing scripts because he needed something to do. Having come up with the title It Came from the Bottom of the Ocean, But also From Space in a hot tub in Jindabyne years erlier (true story), he had the idea of trying the story as a radio play. That worked, so he wrote another, and another, and well you get the idea. He basically just wants to be Rod Serling.
Ben lives in Sydney, enjoys napping, making things up, and long walks to and from coffee shops.
