29 Sep , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse from Zero Gravity Media

Zero Gravity Media has announced the highly anticipated world premiere of “Chaser” on Saturday, November 5 at The Mansfield Playhouse.

From award-winning director and Mansfield-native, Daniel Roemer, comes Chaser, an independent, micro-budget film described as a dark comedy set in none other than Mansfield, Ohio. The upcoming 8-episode television series will make its world premiere at The Mansfield Playhouse presented by Whitten Studios with special thanks to Dream Huge Realty.

Originally filmed as a feature-length movie and later turned into a television series, “Chaser” tells the story of Eddi Sebastian, a down and out film editor who discovers the power to “re-edit” his life. Using this new power, Eddi attempts to change reality. Will Eddi get the life he always dreamed of? Or will the power prove too dangerous?

“Chaser” will premiere on Saturday, November 5, at 1:00 PM at The Mansfield Playhouse, 95 East 3rd Street, Mansfield, OH 44902. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online through Eventbrite at: and on the Zero Gravity Media Facebook page @ZeroGravityFilm. The series is rated TV-MA (mature audience, ages 17+) for language. Immediately following the premiere, director Daniel Roemer, will be available for a brief Q&A followed by light refreshments and a meet and greet with the cast and crew.

Roemer, founder of Zero Gravity Media, Mansfield resident, and award-winning filmmaker, says the series, which was filmed in Mansfield and the surrounding community, utilizes local talent alongside talent from Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago. The starring actors of the series are Russ Russo, Gia Bay, Daniel DeWeldon, Haley Bedocs, and Roger Moore.

Locals associated with the film include writer/director Daniel Roemer, actors Haley Bedocs and Roger Moore, producers Suzanna Hammond and Andrea Wittmer, producer/composer Rob Hemmick, filmmaker Eric Sparks, and numerous other crew members and extras.

Roemer says it is an honor to debut the series in his hometown of Mansfield, OH where most of the project was shot and most of the series’ story takes place. He is humbled by the opportunity to share his project with the Mansfield community, which generously supported the project. The goal for premiering the series in Mansfield is to celebrate the local donors, actors, producers, crew members, and businesses that came together to create and support the artistic project.

“Projects such as this offer the local community the chance to create something they can take pride in. They bring people together, inspire new ideas, and encourage everyone to grow and gain new skills and experiences. And hopefully it also provides the community with new press and visitors, furthering Mansfield’s reputation of being an innovative and creative community!” says Roemer.

Roemer plans to distribute the TV series and says there has already been interest from more than one distributor. A trailer of the series is available for preview at

Major donors supporting the development of the film include Dr. and Mrs. Peter and Valerie Roemer, David Martin, Daniel Bugg, George Whitten, and Jeremy Howe.
