Comedy Scams Swindles Schemes Web Series

Scams, Swindles, and Schemes — a web show starring Devin Whitlock and Onicia Muller

‘Scams, Swindles, and Schemes’ is a friendship web show thingy where we look at internet culture stuff, everyday problems, and ideas that may be more pervasive than you thought. Then we determine if something is a Scam, a Swindle, or a Scheme!

I produced a TV pilot! — Onicia Update

Happy Black History Month! I PRODUCED MY FIRST FULL-LENGTH TV PILOT!!!!

Having a television show that runs for 3+ seasons is one of my big career goals. Filming a pilot is a looooong way from that goal, but it is a major milestone. I won’t share the entire pilot because we’re shopping the idea and seeking additional funding to produce the other 5 episodes of season 1. However, I can share the trailer. 

Special thanks to Peter Sagnia for trusting me with his story idea and to Diane de la Haye and Maya Montrell for providing additional writing and story support.

When I have a moment, I’ll post the full project details with cast and crew info. Please, ‘like’, share, and leave a comment.

2021 Resolution and Goals
In December, I shared that I didn’t want to make plans for 2021, but I lowkey felt inspired to write and workshop a new half-hour pilot. I also wanted to rest more. Well, I did just that. I took the entire month of January off. I feel pretty refreshed.

I wrote a new pilot called Matched. Very thankful to my friends Devin Whitlock and erica Dreisbach for their feedback and encouragement. Now I have a kickin’ script to submit to Sundance’s Episodic Lab and Warner Media Access’ (f.k.a. HBOAccess) fellowship.

Blast into Adventure! – Onicia Update

Amma be honest with you. Emotionally, I’ve been feeling like a smooth 5/10. Then, my aunt passed away in November, and I dipped to a rocky 4/10. Now that I’m rested and replenished my ice cream levels (Thanks, Donni), I’m feeling like a 5 again. It’s not great, but it’s better than where I was. 

So, what’s new?

Blast into Adventure!
Chicago writer and corruption connoisseur, Paul Dailing created an amazingly spooky and funny audio drama Blast into Adventure. Synopsis: A COVID-quarantined suburban dad starts listening to a 1940s radio show that shouldn’t exist. Then the show starts listening back. 

It was a pleasure voicing Amaya Watkins. While my on-camera acting is usually best described as wet cardboard, thanks to my wonderful acting coach and co-star Devin Whitlock, I can confidently say that I did my thang. Skip ahead to episode 8 if you want to hear me act out a marital dispute that rivals Scarlett Johansson’s and Adam Driver’s performance in Marriage Story.

Caddy Club
Story Play Media‘s latest animated project, Caddy Club is going into production. Synopsis: A group of young troublemakers who become crime-fighting superheroes when they discover a magical portal at a youth golf program. After reading the script, I’m excited to see Kafi Kareem‘s film. Caddy Club is a wonderfully funny story that reminded me of C.S Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. I loved the elements of magic and Caribbean folklore. Please help bring this project to life by shopping their merch and sharing their other project Big Man Dan.


2021 Resolution and Goals
Friends, I ain’t making no plans for 2021. This morning I had a fleeting thought about writing and workshopping a half-hour stand-up comedy set. But really, I just want to relax more, enjoy more art, encounter new characters, and play. If you have enough hope in your tank to make plans for 2020, check out ASE Beauty’s 8 Health and Wellness New Year Resolution Ideas .
