Though I didn't realize he was a part of this team, I've known Lance for a few years. He has a great sense of story and a passion for storytelling that should help you folks do well as you advance. I'd love to see some footage of the bad-ass, female zombie killer giving some tutorials on how to survive to the hyper-active fan boys who might see it as more of a game than a reality. Keep it up and good luck!

    Canada needs a clear cut show like this that hold no punches. Comedy shows in Canada are very tame except for a few like Trailer Park Boys. The cast looks amazing and what they are doing with the genre for zombies is just getting me very excited, Hoping this makes it through if not some other network better pick this show up.

    I think the concept of a truly Canadian apocalypse/zombie film/show could be fantastic, even in a media landscape that is perhaps over-saturated with zombie matieral…. Having said that, I become instantly worried when the hype video to promote what is supposed to be a unique zombie-apocalypse vision begins with a joke derived straight from Shaun of the Dead, one of the most well-known zombie comedies. The potential is there for this to be something really original…. let's see that.

    You are right the the Shaun of the Dead opening, we thought that was a nice little thing to take. However, I have seen a similar thing like that on The Simpsons. I believe it is all about your own spin on things. Like our hype video being a signal transmission from us in a bunker. Thank you for the comments we take everything to heart and also as guidance.

    Honestly this has the potential to become an iconic show in Canadian television history. Am I overselling it? Maybe. But this show has a diverse cast and last time I checked Canada is one of the most diverse countires in the world. With shows like Walking Dead being popular, now is a great chance to deconstruct not only the zombie genre but the entire post-apocalyptic genre as well with a Canadian twist. And who doesn't like a bunch of stoners? They're always fun to hang around with. Well most of the time. I hope this show gets a series

    I don't think that was raspberry juice! Fun hype video, interesting twist and framing premise, and diverse, funny cast. Zombies in everything might get to be a bit much but fine tuning is what development is for, right? Good luck, Wasted!

    Wasted is a catchy title that doesn't seem to go with the show. The Zombie concept has good potential but I'm not sure it's realized here. It may be because the zombie topic is a little over done now. Good luck

    I'm not too sure if I would be into watching a zombie show on TV. I understand it's meant to be a comedy but I see it being more of a horror than a funny sitcom. Seems like a hard concept to write about and keep on the entertaining side. Good luck!

    Angusina, I understand what you are saying. Most of the zombie shows which are on TV are heavy into the horror aspect so how do we make it funny and change it up? That's the thing, we dont want to be the typical zombie show, that has been done. We are about making things different

    OK, another entry in the zombies war. It may be an over-saturated market, as other shows are starting to capitalize on that theme (not just the dramatic, but the comedic ... "Town of the Living Dead," etc.). Still, it's a great concept, and a bit more tweaking could set it apart from the rest of the crowd. Congratulations on making it to the Top 55!

    Hi Adam, to go with what Lovina and Satheesan said, it is the characters and also our comedy format. The Walking Dead has to stick to a set of rules and constrictions. With Wasted, we could and will do whatever we want. It is about being unique rather than following which we do not want to do

    In the WD, the characters are terrified of zombies. In wasted, the characters are excited! its what they've been waiting for, they love zombies. They're the type that would go to zombie walk, watch TWD, live and breathe zombie movies and video games. They're a group of zombie fanboys.

    Haha poor Scarborough, but, there is so much to encapsulate with our show its almost hard to fit into 90 seconds. Once we made top 15 we'll reveal more but thank you for the comments Brooke truly appreciate it.
