TV: Guest Role Cast for Zombie ‘Awakening’

John Charles Meyer (pictured inside) has landed a guest starring role in CW’s upcoming zombie pilot “Awakening”. He stars alongside Brian Hallisay (Hostel: Part III), Titus Welliver (“Lost”), Meredith Hagner and Lucy Griffiths.

Bill Laurin and Glenn Davis’ hourlong spec centers on two combative sisters (Hagner and Griffiths) 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”.
