Reality show Fight of the Living Dead pits zombies against contestants

In what's being called a mash-up of The Walking Dead and The Amazing Race, Fight of the Living Dead is a reality show where the contestants have to dodge zombies in a 24-hour simulated undead apocalypse. Said contestants are apparently "internet celebrities" but good luck recognizing a single name. (Although if a name does ring a bell, don't feel too bad about yourself.) It basically looks like one of those zombie run things stretched out an entire day. IGN premiered the first trailer for the series, which you can watch below.

Here's the official set-up of the show:

"Fight of the Living Dead competitors were first blindfolded, driven in circles, led onto the set, and zipped into body bags, all to help simulate the all-too-real tension of awaking in a post-apocalyptic landscape riddled by monsters out for blood. Instructed by a faceless character named Dr. Altagracia (portrayed by Tony E. Valenzuela, Executive Producer and founder of YouTube’s #1 ranked genre channel BlackBoxTV), the “survivors” are tasked finding the antidote that can save mankind.

Enlisting over 200 extras, FX Supervisor Tommy Pietch (Face Off) and his team create a horrifying mob of rotting, wounded, bloody zombies tasked with keeping the competitors from accomplishing their mission. Flight of the Living Dead also turns up the thrills by including a collection of zombie-clad Parkour experts, overseen by renowned stunt coordinator Chris Carnel (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who use the prison’s walls as their terrifying playground, threatening to unleash destruction from any angle.

Among the contestants: Olga Kay, Joey Graceffa, Meghan Camarena (Strawburry17), Justine Ezarik (iJustine), Jeana and Jesse of Prank vs Prank, Iman Crosson (Alpha Cat), and Sam Pepper.

All 11 episodes of the series will debut on CONtv on March 22.
