Week #1 Show Teaser Zombie #1

The Dead are...acting? Steve gets top billing as Zombie #1 in the crappy B movie "Brain Reapers 3", but when the cast takes a break during reset, he can't help but steal the show.

Steve is a middle aged, attractive, only slightly decayed zombie. He is well spoken and well mannered. He was an actor - though largely unsuccessful - before being “turned” and believes strongly that if “Livers” can play vampires, werewolves, and other miscellaneous ghouls, why can’t a zombie play a leading man? Zombie #1 is a slice of life comedy. Think Walking Dead meets Seinfeld.

What can I say about myself that I haven't already said about myself to myself? I like things that are funny, like this writeup. It's funny right? I like to write but no one seems to care for it so, in order to subject people to my creative stupidity, I'm forced to produce as well. So its a win-win! There, now you know everything about me.

When asked: "Samantha, do you prefer to be in front or behind the camera?"
I reply: "Mel Gibson."

While playing the role of a zombie in the short film, " A Zombie Ate My Conscience", a thought occurred to me: Why not cast real zombies as zombie extras. Through much hard work and imagination the world of Zombie #1 has taken shape. Wanna know more? So do we!

    Great idea, love the cinematic approach, different from any zombie movie and I feel this would be different from all tv series out there since most zombie films are usually the same.

    Show has tons of potential to explore comedic zombie jokes!
