Another image for Ghost House Pictures and FEARnet’s new series, Zombie Roadkill starring Thomas Haden Church and David Dorfman, has landed in our mailbox, and in addition to that we now know when you can see the show’s premiere.
FEARnet will debut the first two episodes of Zombie Roadkill on October 4th and then release one new episode of the six-episode series daily through the 8th. The terrifyingly twisted new show will also play on the FEARnet On Demand VOD network with the first three episodes becoming available on October 14th and the final episodes becoming available October 21st.
Ghost House’s partners Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, together with Jim Burns, shepherded the project along with Ben Ketai and Sarah Donohue as Executive Producers. Innovative director David Green helmed the project penned by Henry Gayden.
Academy-Award nominated actor Thomas Haden Church co-stars as a tough as nails Park Ranger who teams with an unsuspecting teenager, played by David Dorfman, to escape a cursed stretch of highway that resurrects roadkill in the form flesh-eating zombie animals. This new breed of terror is not just playing dead.
Zombie Roadkill also stars Toni Wynne, Jeff D’Agostino, Cherilyn Wilson, and Michael Blaiklock and centers around a group of college kids as they are driving on an unfamiliar road. Everything seems fit for a road trip to the lake, but when the group accidentally runs over an unsuspecting squirrel, they quickly realize there will be a price to pay. The cursed road brings the zombie squirrel back to life to haunt the kids. After the kids crash and everyone is injured except the younger brother, he is forced to set out on a journey to defeat the ancient curse and save his brother and friends before it is too late.
Dig on the new still below along with a pretty funny “PSA” starring Thomas Haden Church from the Zombie Roadkill teaser site.
