CBS To Debut BrainDead In Summer 2016

cbs-logo-2CBS has given a straight-to-series order for a 13-episode comic/thriller called BrainDead. The series, from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King, tells the story of an eager young Capital Hill staffer who discovers that Washington's inability to get anything done is because aliens have eaten the brains of Congress. The series is being described as The West Wing meets The Strain.

The King's said about the new series:

We wanted to do a show that was a mix of genre-pulp and high-brow politics. It seemed like the best way to address the news today – not straight, but as the opening act of a horror movie.
