Dead Town - Web Series - Episode 1 'Road To Nowhere'

John eats mayonnaise for a living. At least he did until his boss turned into a zombie then tried to eat him. Now all he wants to do is find his daughter Emily and keep her safe. But in zombie infested Runcorn, even simple tasks like crossing the street or finding batteries for your vintage Sony Walkman have become a matter of life or death.

Armed with a mayonnaise stirring paddle and porno mags for armour; John, along with his retro best friend, 80s Dave and his apocalypse obsessed brother, Butty begin the search for his daughter.

Now into it's 2nd series, Dead Town has established itself as the UK's leading online zombie comedy series (probably because we're the only one!)

We are featured on the UK's biggest comedy website, The British Comedy Guide and we also have our own beer!
