“Lights Out” co-star Meredith Hagner has been cast as the second lead opposite Lucy Griffiths in in the CW’s zombie thriller “Awakening,” reports Deadline.
Bill Laurin and Glenn Davis’ hourlong spec centers on two combative sisters (Griffiths, Hagner) who come of age amid the beginning of a zombie uprising. Word has it that the series follows thousands of zombies living “normal lives” among the living (also known as the “pre-dead”). The two worlds collide and cause war between the living and the dead.
David Von Ancken will helm the pilot episode of the CW’s “Awakening.” He has directed episodes of “Californication,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Heroes,” “The Shield,” “OZ,” and “Memphis Beat”, along with the TV movie “Hell on Wheels”.
