Day 5, a six-part dramatic series from Rooster Teeth Productions (Red vs. Blue, RWBY, Lazer Team), is set in the immediate aftermath of a fatal sleep epidemic. It might be a Dawn of the Dead and Freddy lovechild, but it looks thrilling and suspenseful nonetheless.
Day 5 Synopsis:
After a fortuitous drug bender saves his life, addict Jake (Jesse C. Boyd) ventures out, unaware that most of the world already died in their beds. Battling sleepless fatigue and encroaching delirium, Jake teams with a scrappy teenager (Walker Satterwhite), an overnight doctor (Stephanie Drapeau), and red-eye pilot (Davi Jay) to search for answers… and just maybe find a way to sleep again. Set in a world of insomniacs, late-shift workers and roving psychotics, Day 5 presents a unique vision of the apocalypse that fuses serial drama andaround a human story of survival and redemption.
Day 5 premieres June 19th, at RoosterTeeth.com exclusively for subscribers with new episodes premiering each Sunday.

Boyd (The Choice, The Wanderers) as Jake, Walker Satterwhite (My All American) as Sam, Davi Jay (Walking Dead, True Detective) as Ellis, Stephanie Drapeau (The Catch, Finding Carter) as Ally, Lee Eddy (Red vs Blue) as Alexis, Aaron Spivey-Sorrells (Lazer Team, American Crime) as Cain, Garrett Graham (The Divergent Series: Allegiant, American Crime) as Dave, Joel Heyman (Red vs Blue, RWBY) as Bill, and Jessica Schwartz (American Crime) as Nicole.
