At twelve years old, James Seale murdered all of his friends. In a short horror film.
Ever since, he embraced a passion for storytelling on the page and screen. After graduating NYU, Seale was hired to shoot commercials and music videos in Manhattan, honing his skills as a director, cinematographer and editor. Soon after, he moved to Los Angeles to work in feature films and television.
As a screenwriter, Seale has written MAMA’S BOYS for producer Joel Silver/Warner Bros. and sold his spec action/thriller TOMORROW MAN to Paramount Pictures. In television, he was hired by Carlton Cuse (executive producer of LOST and JACK RYAN) as a series writer and also secured a two-pilot deal with NBC and producer Warren Littlefield.
Directing credits include the feature film MOMENTUM (SYFY/Dimension)
with Teri Hatcher , the claustrophobic action/thriller THROTTLE (Screen
Media) and ASYLUM (HBO), starring Malcolm McDowell and Robert Patrick.
Seale’s films have premiered on HBO, SyFy, HD Net, and UK’s Channel 4,
and have been released by Universal Home Entertainment, Dimension Films and Buena Vista Home Video.
His graphic novel SAFEHAVEN is being adapted into a 10-episode series
by Strong Studios, Screen Media and Michael Bay’s 451 Media Group,
with Seale serving as creator, showrunner and Executive Producer.
Seale will executive produce two new psychological-drama series
SPREE and PRIME and also direct the horror-thriller SALVAGE.
