Dynamic Television has acquired the worldwide distribution rights for SYFY’s upcoming Day of the Dead series.
Day of the Dead tells the story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. It is based on George A. Romero’s classic zombie film. Dynamic has inked its first sales deal for the horror series, with NBCUniversal Networks Germany.
The ten-episode series is from Abbott Street Films and Cartel Entertainment (Creepshow). Production is currently underway in Vancouver, with the series expected to premiere in the U.S. on SYFY next year.
“We never underestimate the value of a brand in galvanizing fanbases, and Day of the Dead is one of the most recognizable brands in the genre,” said Daniel March, managing partner for Dynamic. “We are excited to expand our partnership with NBCUniversal Networks in Germany and look forward to delivering an exhilarating, suspenseful and fun series led by this impressive creative team.”
Executive producer Stan Spry said: “Dynamic Television not only has a proven track record in the genre, but they are also huge fans and understand this arena better than anyone else. Partnering with them is a no-brainer, and we look forward to working together to bring this new chapter to millions of fans worldwide.”
