In the mood for a zombie flick, but your better half is demanding a rom-com? We’ve got the solution that will leave you both smiling, Better off Zed.
From Butcher Bird Studios and award-winning director Travis Stevens (Linked; Shelf Life), with a script penned by 2015 Nicholl Fellowship-winner Amy Tofte, Better Off Zed stars Christine Woods (HBO’s Hello Ladies; The Walking Dead; About a Boy) and Graham Sibley (Sully; Jane the Virgin; The Affair). The film is executive produced by Linda Morel (Key & Peele; Heathers, Teachers).
“For the last decade, Guy (Sibley) has worked a mentally and physically demanding 60-hour week, a soul-crushing daily grind that has frayed his nerves; while his wife Paige (Woods), a free spirit with multiple fine arts degrees to her name, has spent their marriage chasing creative inspiration. When the zombie apocalypse arrives, Guy is ecstatic: no more grueling work, no more monotony, no more hopeless future. He spends his days in idyllic splendor, living life at the moment… while Paige snaps into survival mode and takes on the role of a pragmatist, figuring out how to secure their perimeter and stretch out their food supply, while following news reports for any glimmer of hope that they might be able to escape. The couple—in essence—has switched places. And in this new dynamic, all of the small fissures pressured beneath the surface of their relationship finally crack open, forcing them to deal not only with Armageddon but with a potentially far more horrifying reality… each other.”
Better Off Zed is now available through SP Releasing on iTunes, Amazon, DirectTV, GooglePlay, Sony PSN, Walmart and other outlets throughout the US.
