Director Biography - Anna Salinas, Heather Alarcón Higginbotham

Anna and Heather are two Florida-born latina comedians who have been writing, performing together since 2013, under the moniker "John Baxter." Their viral parody trailers (including, most notably "A Star Is Korn') have been featured in Vulture, Mashable, Revolver Magazine, and more. They've also produced several short films under the imprint Pickle Films, including FOGHORN, which premiered at the Highland Park Independent Film Festival.

After meeting at the Upright Citizens' Brigade in LA, their first full length live sketch comedy show - Cootertown - premiered at the Funny Women Fest back in 2015. Other sketch shows include Save Florida - a collection of Florida-centric vingettes - and Mean Cops, a satire about two Boston dude-cops battling toxic masculinity.

Director Statement

PINKIE is a horror-comedy that explores the perseverance of love, even in the face of the apocalypse. The pilot follows a bitter hermit woman named Axel, living at the edge of civilization. When her optimistic old lover Heath tracks her down, she wants nothing to do with her. But when danger finds them, Axel and Heath must work together to survive. As the season continues, the two will face a string of apocalyptic obstacles, while making sense of their strained relationship and complicated history. Using both Mad Max and Wes Anderson's Hotel Chavalier as references, we sought to create a world that felt both tender and familiar— and of course, really fucking weird.
