Zombies and reality television are not a new concept, but a new series called Reality Z is coming from Netflix to make a dead finger stab at the genre.
…it is possible to cross the walls that isolate the reality show participants from the exterior world and get to know the great self-sustaining fortress, now threatened by the zombies outside and by the vile human nature inside. Witness what other survivors are willing to do to take over the Greek-inspired palace. In addition to satire on reality shows, the series delves into what is the most profound aspect in the zombie genre: the human drama.Video: Welcome To Olympus.

The trailer for the short five episode series looks promising.
Are zombies still fairly popular? Recently, I watched all three seasons of Santa Clarita Diet (see: FIRST LOOK: Santa Clarita Diet (TV Series) – Netflix) and that showed Drew Barrymore can still flat out act in whatever she wants. Here? I don’t recognize any of the cast, but will still watch at least the pilot and see how it goes.
