About WOLFPACK OF RESEDA

Ben March hates his life. The torture of listening to motivational speeches from the slimy head salesman at work, the depressing apartment and foul smells of his Animal Control officer roommate at home, and – most of all – the crappy car that shuttles him between the two. There seems to be no escape from his suburban despair until one night he is bitten by a mysterious creature in the woods. Could he now be a werewolf?

Suddenly, he has the instincts of an alpha dog. For the first time, he pushes aside the mundane to do what he really wants with his life. Forming his own “wolfpack,” Ben makes his lair in Reseda, and has the run of the Valley. But soon, the threat of the murderous beast within him begins to rear its ugly head.

Mixing elements of workplace comedy with the conventions of horror, WOLFPACK OF RESEDA is a unique take on office life, the supernatural, and “winning.”
