Napoleon Dynamite himself, Jon Heder, will headline a new web series, Woke Up Dead, about a young man who finds himself plagued by ever worsening zombie-like symptoms.
According to the press release: Heder stars as Drex Greene, a regular recent college grad who finds himself undergoing an inexplicable transformation that begins when he wakes up at the bottom of a water-filled bathtub. Drex’s roommate Matt, who has been eagerly filming his demise, informs him that he’s easily (and inhumanly) been underwater for more than a half-hour. As he starts to develop zombie-like tendencies, Drex finds it increasingly difficult to focus on his new job and his love life, so he enlists the help of two friends, Cassie and Matt, to help him uncover the truth about the peculiar changes he is experiencing. In the process, Drex meets his match – an exotic beauty named Aurora – who may hold the answers to Drex’s many questions. Drex must decipher whether he really IS a zombie, like Matt is convinced he is, or whether he’s something entirely different.
Josh Gad (The Rocker), Dan Roebuck (Lost), Meital Dohan (The Sopranos), Krysten Ritter (27 Dresses), Jean Smart (24) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) will be featured alongside Heder in this ongoing comedy series, which you can preview below:
