Bloody Disgusting got the scoop on the first casting for HBO’s pilot episode of All Signs of Death, which comes from the creator of pay cabler’s earlier hit “Six Feet Under” and current smash “True Blood”. We can exclusively confirm that Ben Whishaw (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), Clayne Crawford (“24”), Mercedes Masohn (Quarantine 2: Terminal), Ron Yuan (“Prison Break”), Jeremy Ray Valdez, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali (Predators), and Kelsey Ford (Vampires Suck) all star in the pilot directed by Ball, from a script by Charlie Huston, who also penned the crime noir novel “The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death” from which the series is based. Get story details inside.“With his teaching career derailed by tragedy and his slacker days numbered, Webster Fillmore Goodhue makes an unlikely move and joins Clean Team, charged with tidying up L.A.’s grisly crime scenes. For Web, it’s a steady gig, and he soon finds himself sponging a Malibu suicide’s brains from a bathroom mirror and flirting with the man’s bereaved and beautiful daughter. Then things get weird: The dead man’s daughter asks a favor. Every cell in Web’s brain tells him to turn her down, but something makes him hit the Harbor Freeway at midnight to help her however he can. Soon enough it’s Web who needs the help when gun-toting California cowboys start showing up on his doorstep. What’s the deal? Is it something to do with what he cleaned up in that motel room in Carson? Or is it all about the brewing war between rival trauma cleaners? Web doesn’t have a clue, but he’ll need to get one if he’s going to keep from getting his face kicked in. Again. And again. And again. ”
