Chemosabe is a dark comedy Web Series series created by Keith Walker and Devin Elting, and starring Keith Walker, Devin Elting and Diana Sanchez. The show follows the life of Myles Foreman, a man who was diagnosed with cancer but is no longer in remission. Myles is forced to start treatment with the help of his sister and best friend Death.
The idea came from the experiences of the two writers as roommates since Walker’s cancer diagnosis in 2008. Walker thought there was a shortage of shows that dealt with people living with cancer in their 20s and 30s, Most shows deal with people who are really young when they are diagnosed or when they are much older, but what about the people who are in the middle? The people, who are struggling to pay rent and hospital bills on time, the people who are trying find their place in the world all while trying to stay alive.
