work hard for the brain.
6/4/16 & 6/18/16
EPISODE ONE (6/4/16)
SUMMARY: A television P.A. - who is also a zombie - holds
a sign encouraging the audience to shout "BRAAAAIINZ!" at
strategic moments. As he stands off to the side, the story
begins: Jamie, Darren and Tyrone are on the run from zombies;
they flee as Tyrone falls victim. The zombies are wearing
business suits, and include the confident Markus and the
nebbishy sad sack Dave. Dave's excited that he's caught the Cool
Black Guy in the story, elated that it'll mean a promotion. But
after he goes home to his wife, Cindy, and his disaffected
teenage kids, Adam and Samantha (all also zombies), Markus stops
by to give Dave some bad news: Tyrone wasn't the Cool Black Guy
after all; he was the I.T. Nerd, and was just cast against type.
Dave is frustrated, and Cindy isn't thrilled either.

EPISODE TWO (6/18/16)
SUMMARY: A zombie casually eats his victim - who is now a
zombie himself - and the two chat about what life as a zombie
entails, until they are suddenly cut down by the zombie hunters,
who are on their way to a community that has reportedly found a
cure for zombie-ism. Meanwhile, in a zombie business meeting,
Dave gets demoted to the mall for suggesting that being cured of
being a zombie would be a good thing. Upon returning home, he
finds his colleague and alleged friend Markus sleeping with
Cindy. His life in shambles, and unable to provide any brains
for his family - the cupboards are bare - Dave unburdens to his
daughter Samantha. He decides he's going to start living to the
fullest and stop living like a zombie, but Samantha is unmoved.
She's going to stay home and wait for her mother... she'll be
coming home with Markus. Who will be bringing brains.
