MTV’s making a big pitch to get back into the genre game, what with the resurrection of BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD and LIQUID TELEVISION. And, speaking of resurrections, there’s also DEATH VALLEY, a gory/funny exploration of what happens when the undead decide to emigrate en masse to Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
Presented as a COPS-style mockumentary, the series is set one year after the initial infestation, and follows the members of L.A.’s Undead Task Force (or UTF) as they deal with vampires, zombies, and other denizens of the night. The cops’ attempts at keeping the peace are not always by-the-book, which, as befits a twenty-first century horror-comedy, leads to both tons of laughs and vat-fulls of gore. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
MTV brought stars Tania Raymonde, Texas Battle, and Charlie Sanders and series creator Spider One to New York Comic Con for roundtable interviews. Click on the player to hear the session.
