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.

    Love Skeet, hate zombies, What to do, what to do. . . .

  2. Angel says:

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

  3. Ann Wang says:

    I am a fan of Skeet. Glade to see him back on the small screen.

  4. Steven says:

    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.

  5. Francine says:

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

  6. Scott says:

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

  7. LynnH says:

    The Returned was amazing. This show will pale by comparison.

  8. Nancy says:

    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.

      • LGS says:

        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.

    WOW!! Great news. so glad to see Skeet Ulrich back…and two Skeet’s for the price of one! WINNER!!

  11. so happy to see Skeet will be back on TV, so unhappy it’s with zombies, yuch.

  12. Daniel says:

    I want to see Skeet back on tv!!!!
