Today during Comic-Con@Home, Syfy unveiled it’s very bloody and very fun-looking trailer for their upcoming new zombie series, DAY OF THE DEAD. The series is a homage to George A. Romero’s zombie lore and film of the same name. The series is set to debut on the network this October. Check out the trailer below.
During today’s panel entitled Day of the Dead: Adapting a Legend, the show’s creators and key cast members gave a behind-the-scenes look at the new series and how it pays homage to Romero’s shambling undead and gave a first look at the series trailer.
The series from Abbott Street Films and Cartel Entertainment (Creepshow) is based on George A. Romero’s classic 1985 horror film of the same name. It follows six strangers, as they try to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. The ode to Romero’s famous flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.
Day of the Dead stars Keenan Tracey (Bates Motel), Daniel Doheny (Alex Strangelove), Natalie Malaika (Fractured), Kristy Dinsmore (Vikings), and newcomer Morgan Holmstrom.
