Syfy’s Day of the Dead TV series has fleshed out its cast with five new members. Keenan Tracey (Bates Motel), Daniel Doheny (Alex Strangelove), Natalie Malaika (Fractured), Morgan Holmstrom, and Kristy Dinsmore (Vikings) are joining the series based on the George A. Romero zombie movie.
Abbott Street Films and Cartel Entertainment are producing the series with Steven Kostanski (Leprechaun Returns) set to direct its first four episodes and executive produce. Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas are the show’s writers and showrunners. Production is already ongoing in Vancouver, Canada, for the 10-episode series.
Synopsis: “Day of the Dead is the intense story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. This ode to George A. Romero’s famous flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.”
