Bill's debut feature, Runaway, premiered to universal accolades at Tribeca and Toronto. It went on to take the top prize at the Austin Film Festival and was subsequently released by eOne Films. Recently, Bill was tapped to adapt the true crime bestseller, Running with the Devil. More/Medavoy is attached to produce, and the production is in talks with a major studio to finance and distribute.  Most recently, Bill signed on to collaborate with his longtime mentor, Tony-winning and Oscar-nominated Mark Medoff, to adapt Medoff’s play, The Wager, for TV.  Bill is also in development with Echo Lake Entertainment’s TV division (SyFy’s upcoming Van Helsing) on an original one-hour drama.  Announcements regarding this project are forthcoming.  He's been a featured panelist, moderator and pitch competition jurist at the Austin Film Festival screenwriters conference and Scriptfest/The Great American Pitchfest. In addition to his work in Hollywood, Bill is Faculty-in-Residence for screenwriting at the acclaimed Scottsdale School of Film+Theatre.
