    WokeUpDead

    Woke Up Dead is a new live-action zombie comedy from Electric Farm Entertainment appearing on Sony Pictures Entertainment’s online video network, Crackle.com. The original online series stars comedian Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), Josh Gad (Back to You, The Rocker), Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, 27 Dresses), Jean Smart (24, Samantha Who?) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld). Woke Up Dead, marks Heder’s first foray into the world of web programming and takes place in various locations around Los Angeles, California.

    The story of Woke Up Dead follows Drex Greene (Heder), a regular recent college grad who finds himself undergoing an inexplicable transformation that begins when he wakes up at the bottom of a water-filled bathtub.  Drex’s roommate Matt, who has been eagerly filming his demise, informs him that he’s easily (and inhumanly) been underwater for more than a half-hour.  As he starts to develop zombie-like tendencies, Drex finds it increasingly difficult to focus on his new job and his love life, so he enlists the help of two friends, Cassie and Matt, to help him uncover the truth about the peculiar changes he is experiencing.  In the process, Drex meets his match – an exotic beauty named Aurora – who may hold the answers to Drex’s many questions.  Drex must decipher whether he really IS a zombie, like Matt is convinced he is, or whether he’s something entirely different.

    Josh Gad stars as Matt, Drex’s roommate who is determined to profit from his friend’s changes and Krysten Ritter stars as Cassie, a beautiful young med student whose curiosity fuels a powerful interest in Drex’s new condition.  Jean Smart stars as Meryl, Drex’s mother, and Wayne Knight appears as Andy Batten, Drex’s nosy co-worker, who is determined to create trouble in Drex’s career.

    Other members of the star driven cast include Dan Roebuck (Lost, Eleventh Hour) as the mysterious Shadowman; Ellia English (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Semi-Pro) as Diana Phillips, Drex’s supervisor; and Meital Dohan (Weeds, The Sopranos) as Aurora.

    Woke Up Dead is directed by veteran TV director, writer and producer Tim O’Donnell (Lizzie McGuire, Clueless); written by John Fasano (Darkness Falls, Another 48 Hours); and executive produced by Stan Rogow (Afterworld, Gemini Division, Lizzie McGuire) and Brent Friedman (Gemini Division, Star Trek: Enterprise).

      Yeah me2!! I actually really like the show. And I also love that Aurora chick. Is that really Meital Dohan!? If so, then she was in Weeds!!! (another great show too). She was a real good actress (and hot too). It is too bad it is over for this season though… but it better be back with more soon!

      Watched in on Hulu and its pretty good! A pretty good cast too, which surprised me. Everyone is talking about Aurora on here and now I remember seeing her on weeds, she fits in well.
