It’s the end of the world. The dead have risen and humanity is crumbling. In the small industrial town of Runcorn in the North West of England, John Diant, his survivalist, spam loving, apocalypse obsessed brother Butty and his retro, chain smoking smart arse best friend 80s Dave, are doing what needs to be done to survive – From both the living and the dead!
Based on Peter Mckeirnon’s Kindle and iTunes bestselling comedy horror series Death in a Northern Town, Dead Town is a new web based ‘sick-com’ currently in production and will be coming to Youtube later this year.
Mixing comedy with extreme gore (plus other bodily fluids), Dead Town will follow the adventures of John and co, as they search for his missing daughter, Emily, on the mean streets of zombie infested Runcorn!
We recently unveiled our Youtube channel, showcasing what’s to come from the comedy horror series.
