Series overview

A Zombie apocalypse is unleashed in Birmingham and sisters Kat and Jo, together with unlikely travel companions Sunny and Amar must flee for their lives...by canal boat.

The series will star Leah Brotherhood (White Gold, Boy Meets Girl), Cara Theobold (Crazyhead, Downton Abbey), Hamza Jeetooa (Doctor Who, Our Girl) and Ryan McKen (White Dragon, Save Me).

Episode 1

Sisters Kat and Jo realise there’s a zombie apocalypse in Birmingham, but gamer Kat has a plan: zombies can’t swim - water is the safest option, and narrowboats move just marginally faster than zombies. Jo is unconvinced, until the guy she just slept with (Jude) turns into a zombie!

Meanwhile, Amar and Sunny have been in Birmingham for a stag. When all trains back to London are cancelled and they’re attacked by a train guard zombie, they flee.

Kat and Jo narrowly escape zombie Jude and set sail on Dorothy (Jo’s ex-boyfriend’s narrowboat). Unbeknownst to them, Sunny and Amar are hidden in the boat’s toilet!
