Web Zomedy “Acting Dead” launches new site
Official trailer releases and series gets a first look at festival
HOLLYWOOD, CA (March 21, 2014) – ActingDead.com has launched and so has the trailer for the star-studded ZomCom set to make it's online premiere April 22nd. But first, the comedy will make a sneak peek debut at the Los Angeles Web Series Festival (LawebFest) on Friday night, March 28th at 10pm, and then again on Sunday night, March 30th at 6pm. The largest web series festival in the world, boasting a record 314 selected shows for 2014, returns to the Radisson Hotel near LAX.
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 (Alien Abduction in theaters April 4th), 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.
Show runner and star Brian Beacock said "We're very excited about ACTING DEAD's World Premiere on March 28th at LAweb Fest. It's an amazingly fun and important event and we're so proud to be a part of it. Plus today is the launch of the ACTING DEAD Official Website and the premiere of our Official Series Trailer! There's so much going on, it's got our brains on overdrive. Of course, that comes with the territory when working on a zombie comedy series."
Besides Beacock and Clare, the series boasts an impressive group of talent including series regulars Chris Galya, Patrika Darbo, Paul Nygro and John Yelvington plus Season One guest stars Debbie Gibson, Eric Martsolf, Carolyn Hennesy, Sean Kanan, John J. York, Cocoa Brown, Christine Lakin, Lori Alan, Erin Matthews, Gary and Larry Lane, Peter Allen Vogt, Sheila Sheila, Mitch Silpa and Jacee Jule.
