They work hard for the brain.

2 Episodes
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.
