ACTING DEAD – A Must Watch Zomedy Series From Brian Beacock

Acting Dead
The much anticipated web Zomedy Acting Dead, launched the pilot episode today on JTS.TV, the first of a 10 week roll out schedule. Plans are in place to release the first half of the season beginning today, and each Tuesday thereafter, then take a two week break from the actual show, but continue the Tuesday release schedule with two surprise episodes (you have to wait to find out what those are). The back four episodes of the series will follow with the Season One finale set for June 24th.

ACTING DEAD stars Brian Beacock (Mulholland Dr.) as Tate Blodgett, a down on his luck, unemployed actor, who after being turned down for role after role, decides to take his career into his own hands, and becomes a Zombie, simply so he can finally get work in the many Zombie movies and television shows. Along the way, he meets Alex Carboneux portrayed by Jillian Clare (IFC’s Alien Abduction), a former child star, who’s temper has stalled her career, until she also decides to take matters in her own hands, which doesn’t turn out so well either.

Creator and series star Brian Beacock said “I’m really excited about the launch of Acting Dead. For me, zombies and Hollywood always seemed like a perfect fit. I’m so proud of our entire Acting Dead cast and crew and I think we’ve got a really amazing and funny show on our cold, dead hands.”
