Dani Barker is an actress, writer, and producer originally from British Columbia, Canada. She traveled to New York after selling an original episodic series to TBS where she played the lead. Dani worked directly with the showrunner as a writer and consulting producer under NorthSouth Productions. This series was originally acquired from VH1, who created a pilot starring Dani and four Canadian friends based off her popular web series Starvival. Starvival earned a lot of attention and became popular on Youtube in 2014 after garnering millions of views, landing Dani on the front page of Entertainment in the Toronto Star and featuring her on websites like BlogTO, Seriesandtv.com and Tubefilter. Simultaneously, Dani developed and sold a second series called Squirm to Canada’s largest LGBTQ+ network, OUTtv. Dani’s project Follow Her, a psychological feature thriller directed by Sylvia Caminer, will be the first of many upcoming films.
