The supernatural audio series stars Academy Award nominee Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting and The Riches), Jack Kilmer (The Nice Guys, Palo Alto), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), and Saul Rubinek (HuntersWarehouse 13). The Lesser Dead will be available at launch on Wondery+.

Award-winning author Christopher Buehlman (The Blacktongue ThiefThose Across The River, Between Two Fires) adapted his darkly-comedic novel of the same title to audio. Set in wild-and-wooly 1978 New York City, The Lesser Dead embeds you in a colony of vampires led by the formidable Margaret McMannis (Driver) and is narrated by one of her clan members, Joey Peacock (Kilmer), an irreverent, eternally-young 19-year-old who quite literally never grew up. When a dangerous new adversary enters their world, Margaret and Joey's unconventional family of vampires must come together before it's too late.

"We're tremendously proud of this imaginative and gripping series and couldn't think of a better home for its premiere than a platform like Wondery+ who have set the bar for high-quality audio experiences," said Mark Stern, President of Echoverse.

Stern executive produces the audio drama along with Buehlman, Driver, Kilmer, and City Film Entertainment's Joshua D. Maurer and Alixandre Witlin (Howards EndThe HoaxThe Last Tycoon). The series is produced by SALT Audio (Black OutCarrier) and directed by Dan Blank (Carrier).

Sixty days following its March 27 premiere on Wondery+, The Lesser Dead will be available on all podcasting platforms. The official trailer can be found HERE.
