The producers are Todd Garner of Broken Road Production and Adma Herz and Joshua Shader of Terra Firma Films. The screenwriters are Tom and Tim Mullen, who co-wrote the short MLB vs. Survivor.
The Kickstarter project, which as of this writing has 17 days to go, has already raised nearly $49,000 on a goal of $6,000. Sullivan’s Sluggers will tell the story of a minor league baseball team battling flesh eating monsters.
