Production Story

Veteran TV and film actor Tim Abell portrays Robert, the Iraq War vet, in Clubhouse. Abell met Shapochka on the Los Angeles set of the film Cross. It was about a year later when Shapochka sent Abell the Clubhouse script. The actor was impressed: “One thing I liked about the script is that there are scenes that come out of nowhere and are so unexpected.”
