It’s about to get weird in Netflix’s Daybreak teaser trailer
Netflix has released the teaser trailer for their forthcoming post-apocalyptic dramedy series Daybreak, based on Brian Ralph’s graphic novel series of the same name. Starring Colin Ford (We Bought a Zoo) and Golden Globe nominee Matthew Broderick, the series will make its debut on October 24. Featuring references from Broderick’s iconic ’80s teen movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Out, you can check out the video below.
Daybreak is a genre-bending series and subversive dark comedy which finds 17-year-old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. Joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12 year old Angelica and Josh’s former high school bully Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai, Josh tries to stay alive amongst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.
The 10-episode series stars Colin Ford as Josh Wheeler, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Angelica, Matthew Broderick as Principal Burr, Sophie Simnett as Sam Dean, Gregory Kasyan as Eli Cardashyan, Krysta Rodriguez as Ms. Crumble, Jeanté Godlock as Mona Lisa and Cody Kearsley as Turbo Bro Jock.
Daybreak is created by Aron Eli Coleite (Star Trek: Discovery, Heroes) and Brad Peyton (Frontier, Rampage), who are also serving as executive producers along with Jeff Fierson (Frontier).
