Following on from the successful launch of Neighbours interactive webisodes last month, FremantleMedia Australia announced today another dynamic digital initiative for the iconic drama series as it heads into its 30th year.
Zombie Edition is a five-part web series for YouTube featuring the regular Neighbours characters as they face an impending zombie apocalypse.
The series will parody all the classic zombie clichés - a pet becomes infected, the group splits up, the uninfected pose as zombies - whilst gently having fun with previous Neighbours storylines when characters return from the dead.
The series will play out over 5 x 5-minute episodes, released daily on the 'Neighbours Official' YouTube channel.
Production will commence in the coming months with the first episode going live the second half of this year.
