Plot, cast and production info
BrainDead is a new US comedy / political thriller created by Robert and Michelle King (The Good Wife) and airing on CBS since June 13, 2016. The series is produced by the Kings, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker and hails from Scott Free Productions, King Size Productions and CBS Television Studios. The freshman installment contains 13 episodes.
A federal employee Laurel Healy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) makes a discovery that is troubling to say the least – it turns out that many politicians are infected by extraterrestrial bugs who are literally eating their brains. This infection is what`s responsible for the chaos that the political life is so full of, and the international alien conspiracy is threatening all of humanity. The cast also includes Danny Pino (as Senator Luke Healy (D)), Aaron Tveit (as Gareth Rider), Nikki M. James (as Rochelle Daudier), Jan Maxwell (as Senator Ella Pollack(D)), Johnny Ray Gill (as Gustav Triplett) and Tony Shalhoub (as Senator Raymond “Red” Wheatus (R))
Ratings and renewal potential
The series has a 7.4/10 IMDb score. The mix of genres is truly stupefying – with a bit of sci-fi, satire, suspense, and even a hint of romance thrown in. The horror aspect, however, is far from pronounced. The writing and the cast are praised and the reviews are generally positive. BrainDead premiered to 4.59 million viewers, but the viewership declined rather significantly – by the third episode only 3.29 million were tuning in. Most of the first season episodes are still ahead, so it is difficult to predict how it will fare in terms of a renewal. The premise is billed by reviewers as one that needs to be extended in order to last beyond the first season. Stay tuned for further news.
