Additionally, O’Fallon created the sci-fi show ‘Mysterious Ways,’ which revolves around anthropology professor Declan Dunn’s pursuit of miracles and wonders, supported by his grounded friend, psychiatrist Peggy Fowler.

Over the years, O’Fallon has been busy directing episodes of various popular shows. His recent works include episodes of Paramount+’s ‘The Game,’ which offers a contemporary exploration of Black culture within the realm of professional football. His credits include series such as Netflix’s ‘Firefly Lane,’ BET’s ‘American Soul,’ and Lifetime’s ‘UnREAL.’ Additionally, he has contributed to acclaimed productions like Fox’s ‘House’ and ‘Prison Break.’

Mahon’s previous works include appearances in an episode of ‘House,’ Richard Elfman’s ‘Shrunken Heads,’ and the Western series ‘Lucky Luke.’ Additionally, she has contributed as a writer and director for the TV special ‘Elepalooza!’
