How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Synopsis:
Ten years after theapocalypse was supposedly averted, a new outbreak causes 18-year-old Norm Elman to learn the frightening truth of both the zombie threat and the safe haven that has kept him and others alive. Norm’s father, Dr. Elman, clearly knows something. Why else would he release his zombie test-subjects?

The pair brought Hannah onto the team to executive produce, and they all got to work. Five months later, we’re here with no studio backing, no distributor deal, and no investor agreement. We only have our vision, our first episode, and you. If you’re a fan of the zombie genre, web series, or high-quality storytelling in general, ask yourself: Don’t you want to learn How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
