The potential series, which died on the vine at CBS back in 2007, centers on a small town whose residents start coming back from the dead.

Ulrich will play the dual roles of Father Harries,  a local priest estranged from his identical twin brother Graham, a junkie who returns from the dead.

The cast also includes Deception‘s Meagan Good.

    • Reanimation and becoming a zombie are two completely different things. It’s not a zombie show.

  • I remember this pilot from years ago… I guess Amber Tamblyn won’t be in it again.

  • The original pilot was on Youtube and was actually really good. It was being developed the same year as the similarly themes, but vastly different, Pushing Daisies.

  • I love him in these types of shows (Miracles and of course Jericho) so I’ll be tuning in for sure.

  • In other words..The Revenants / The Returned / Resurrection. Could we at least TRY to do something original?

  • Isn’t this RESURRECTION with OMAR EPPS coming in March? (Sun. 3-9) Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Skeet and would be beyond happy to see him back on TV. Has it been picked up yet? What network please? Thanks! :)

  • I just love Skeet and was hoping that they would bring Jericho back. It was a great show…. not too sure about more zombies……

    • It’s not a zombie show. Coming back from the dead does not = zombies. I seriously doubt the people on this show will be mindlessly shuffling around trying to eat people.

      • True, but there is Canal’s/ Sundance’s Les Revenants, BBC’s In The Flesh, ABC’s Resurrection, and A&E’s The Returned; all with similar premises.
