How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse – Season One

Part “Walking Dead,” part “Hunger Games.” This web series is the next evolution of zombies

Los Angeles, CA January 30, 2015 – Ten years after the zombie apocalypse was supposedly averted; a new outbreak causes 18-year-old Norm Elman to learn the frightening truth of both the zombie threat and the safe haven that has kept him and others alive.

Dr. Elman clearly knows something. Why else would he release his zombie test-subjects? We know the answer, but we’ll never tell…unless our campaign is successful.
We’re an independent operation. One sunny afternoon in August, our writer, Justin, sat down for lunch with our director, Stewart, and asked: “Are you going to eat that?” And also: “Want to direct the pilot for a web series idea I have?”

After reading the script for the first episode and outline for the first season, Stewart agreed. The pair brought Hannah onto the team to executive produce, and they all got to work.

Five months later, we’re here with no studio backing, no distributor deal, and no investor agreement. We only have our vision, our first episode, and you.
If you’re a fan of the zombie genre, web series, or high quality storytelling in general, ask yourself: Don’t you want to learn How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
