Local Producers Casting Zombies, Evil Robots for 'Strange' Web Series

Want to learn how to destroy evil robots with jumper cables or how to troubleshoot broken household appliances with ESP? New web series 'How to Survive the Strange' aims to be PBS's This Old House meets a zombie apocalypse survival guide. An open casting call for the show will be held March 15th at 6pm at Crackskulls Coffee and Books in Newmarket, NH.

'How to Survive the Strange' is a tongue in cheek how-to series created by web video producer John Herman and Bryan White, author of B-movie blog Cinema Suicide. According to the creators, the show will prepare the public for everything from alien invasion to campground slashers --often using common objects around the house. Herman and White are looking to cast zombies, ghosts, evil robots, and even a crazed mob. And there are non-strange roles to cast too.

Interested non-union actors are encouraged to bring a head shot and talent resume, though neither is required to audition. Actors will be seen on a first come, first served basis. 'How to Survive the Strange' debuts May 3rd on the web.
