Voltage Pictures has picked up international sales rights to six-part horror series “Age of the Living Dead”, Variety reports out of the Hong Kong FilMart.
Nicola Posenor (“Mythica,” “Life Bites”) stars alongside David Meadows (“Captain Phillips,” “Imperium”) and Estella Warren (“Planet of the Apes,” “Beauty and Beast”) in the saga of a country consumed by an apocalyptic plague of vampirism and war.
“The story involves humans providing vampires on the opposite coast with a compulsory, weekly blood donation. Eventually the humans manage to re-arm and plan a nuclear strike on the vampires as a final strategy to end the war.”
The series is produced by showrunners Simon Phillips and directed by Paul Tanter (“The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan”) at Age of the Living Dead Productions. The pair are industry leaders in U.K. genre productions, having produced 40 films and TV shows between them for companies including Lionsgate, E1, Momentum, Studio Canal, and Universal.
