Bunkheads is a new six part web series from Lauren Klixbull, Will Gong and Gabriel Reiter. Designed as a modern sitcom, the series focuses around four lovable goofballs trapped in a bunker fighting for their lives and for their sanity. It’s being described as the roommates from New Girl getting trapped in the world of Shaun Of The Dead.
After living in an underground bunker for a year, long simmering frustrations between the four start to boil over. They need to keep it together or risk becoming lunch for a zombie. While waiting for a rescue, they’re continuously pitted against each other in ways that resonate in today’s America, while ultimately helping them become a new kind of family.
Cast members include Khalif Boyd (writer for David So Comedy), Chris O’Brien (Found Footage 3D 2016), Carly Turro (Blood Puppet! Christmas ’94), Josh Covitt (The Mindy Project TV series) and Alexandra Johnston (American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story 2017).
