Next up, Syfy is making tracks for Jasper, Alabama — aka “Town of the Living Dead” — for the purpose of a comedic docuseries chronicling the small town’s years-long endeavor to make an indie zombie movie, TVLine has learned.
Sounding like a modern spin on Chris Smith’s 1999 American Movie, for six years (and counting), the residents of Jasper have labored to complete Thr33 Days Dead, which is based on a local urban legend and centers on a group of friends trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in rural Alabama.
Premiering Tuesday, October 7, “Town of the Living Dead” will follow the intrepid (and motley) crew of amateur filmmakers as they struggle against every obstacle imaginable to lock a final cut of their film, with hopes that it someday will become a bona fide movie.
