One of the things I love most about Twitter is finding out about wonderful things that I otherwise would never have known about. Actress Reagan Gomez’s upcoming web series, Surviving, is just one of those gems.
According the crowdfunding website that she used to fund the project, Indiegogo, the following is the synopsis for the series:
“Survivng The Dead is a webseries that follows Shayla. Shayla is a nurse who’s working in a hospital when a mysterious “flu” takes over the city. Shayla is forced to flee the city with her younger sister Lucy. They soon discover that the virus, is a lot more serious than anyone could have ever imagined. Not only is their father somehow involved with the virus, Shayla and Lucy are now being hunted by the Government. Shayla and Lucy are in a race against time to not only find their father, but save the fate of mankind.”
Unfortunately, I can’t embed the video here, but the trailer on Reagan Gomez’s website is definitely worth the two minute running time. I’m always here for any kind of genre story with a woman of color as the lead, and judging by the trailer Surviving looks like it’s going to be terrific. The production quality looks amazing, and Shayla’s journey already has me intrigued. It only took a couple of minutes to get me hooked, and I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the series’ October release.
