Joe recently wrote for the TNT drama 'The Librarians', co-wrote 'Something Blue' for Black Label Media, and adapted 'Serpent’s Bite', starring Anna Camp, for Grey Eagle Films.

Filmmaker's note

With 'Delivery', we wanted to play with the idea of free will. Every character in this movie is a prisoner, each held hostage by their job, their relationships, their fears, to varying degrees. This inspired our color scheme of green, yellow, and red - the omnipresent traffic lights in our life that warn us, stop us, or encourage us. We all have decisions, some of which seem innocuous at the time, but ultimately will decide if we reach our destinations or die on the road. And it’s our choice to obey or ignore those warnings: to break free from what holds us back in life, or to stay 'locked up' indefinitely.
