Cinedigm has acquired Alpine Labs’ hybrid competition reality series Fight of the Living Dead, the first original series acquisition for CON TV, Cinedigms direct-to-consumer, streaming network targeting Comic-Con and pop culture fans.
The series mash-up of the reality and scripted genres. The show follows nine top YouTube stars (groan) as they attempt to survive the first 24 hours of a simulated zombie apocalypse.
Contestants face challenges in an attempt to eliminate each other from the competition while trying to survive the undeads relentlessly grisly, and frighteningly realistic onslaught.
Launching in late 2014, CON TV will feature additional original series like FOTLD as well as movies and TV series from Cinedigms library of over 52,000 titles, live events and panels filmed at conventions year round. The channel is a partnership between Cinedigm and Wizard World, the largest producer of Comic Con and pop culture events nationally.
Fight of the Living Dead is produced by Alpine Labs and Revolver Picture Company; Alpine’s Kevin Abrams, Jamie Denenberg, BlackBoxTVs Tony E. Valenzuela, and Aaron Lewis are Executive Producers, Revolver’s Nick Phillips and Kelly Martin Wagner are Co-Executive Producers.
