Jason and his two brothers spent their childhood living out of cheap motels and shitty cars, always staying just one step ahead of the law. 

To authorities, their father was a criminal—a fugitive, but to Jason and his brothers he was simply their Con Man Daddy.

Jason has channeled his true-life exploits into a One-Hour TV Drama Series.  Con Man Daddy is the Pilot episode.


An imaginative boy and his brothers hold on tight as their con man father and bipolar mother keep the family on the run during the 1970s and ‘80s, but as his father’s crimes become personal, the boy must make a decision that will change the course of all their lives.

Waller has written and recorded an extensive library of memories and misadventures

in preparation for the series’ episodic content.

Producer/Writer/Comedian  Don Reed has been a mentor to Jason throughout the writing process and continues to lend his expertise and guidance.   Don Reed introduced Jason’s remarkable story to the producers at

NPR’s award-winning radio show and podcast Snap Judgment.

Snap Judgment interviewed Jason about the complex relationship between father and son.
