Beemer plays district attorney Evan Blackwell on the Emmy-winning digital drama series, The Bay (Amazon Prime). He is vying for the Emmy Award for "Oustanding Supporting Actor in a Digital Drama Series."
Last year, Beemer was nominated for his exceptional scenes in the courtroom, as part of the trial of Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans), which he executed well as Blackwell, and were worthy of an Emmy as well.
This year, in season four, Beemer's character's storyline got more even complex and intense, especially in the scenes with his father John Blackwell (played by veteran soap actor Ronn Moss), and his confrontation with Pete Garrett (portrayed by Kristos Andrews) and his new love interest, Tamara Garrett (Celeste Fianna).

For the majority of the first half of the fourth season, Beemer is a revelation, and nails every scene with conviction. He allows his creativity and range to shine, and hopefully, that will be sufficient to earn him his well-deserved first career Emmy Award.
