SYFY’s Day of the Dead is based around a group of strangers trying to endure the first 24 hours of an undead attack. This ode to George A. Romero’s legendary flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a pack of ravenous zombies trying to rip them apart.
The 10-episode series is written and created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, who will also be serving as showrunners. It stars Keenan Tracy, Daniel Doheny, Natalie Malaika, Morgan Holmstrom, and Kristy Dawn Dinsmore.
