TOWN OF THE LIVING DEAD stars producer, no-nonsense taskmaster, and “mama bear” Tina Teeter, and director John M. Ware, a lifelong horror junkie fulfilling his life dream of making his own zombie film. The series also features the film’s lead actor Bryan Boylen, co-star/aspiring Cosplay photographer Chase Lawrence, and lead actress and recent mother, Catie Teeter. Rounding out the crew are Terry Hunter (special effects/make-up/zombie recruitment) and Laura Bramblette (lead zombie coach/assistant to the producer).

 

For zombie aficionados, Space offers more ‘brain candy’ with new episodes of zombie thriller Z NATION, Fridays at 10 p.m. on Space. Starring Tom Everett Scott and DJ Qualls, Z NATION kicked off with a bang with 319,000 viewers tuning into the premiere, making Space the #1 non-sports network in its timeslot among the key A25-54 and A18-49 demos. The 13-episode series follows a group of ordinary citizens who are tasked with transporting the only known human to have survived a zombie bite across the United States. In an all-new episode of Z NATION, “Philly Feast” (Friday, Sept. 26 at 10 p.m. ET), the survivors make their way through the mean streets of Philadelphia, where they cross paths with a group of psychotic outlaws with ties to one of their own.
