The Remnants

The Remnants is a proposed series from screenwriter John August starring Justine Bateman, Michael Cassidy, Ben Falcone, Ze Frank, Ernie Hudson, and Amanda Walsh. The pilot episode was shot during the writer's strike a year ago, and is now in development with 60frames.
For the past few months, the pilot has been shopped around to advertisers and other possible sponsors, but given the economy and my schedule, it’s looking unlikely that a confluence of money and time will lead us to shoot more. So I wanted to let people see it, particularly because it features some actors who should be on more lists. Including Ze Frank, who is now an Angeleno.

See the 11-minute pilot at August's website. Link -Thanks, Ben!

Update: There is a drive to gather support for making The Remnants into a continuing series. Link -Thanks, Periodical Boy!

Ok, so it's based on an sci-fi book. It the book, a metor destroyed civilization, but prior to that, a bunch on people were frozen and shot into space. A sentient spaceship picks them up and revives them. Stuff goes from there.

In this pilot, apparently, the main characters are the last survivors, still on earth, from some unnamed (so far) apocolypse. And also there are bad guys (who we don't see yet) that can seem human for a while. Also, the show seems a dark comedy, and the 'humanness' of the characters are emphasized (no super athletic people, no genius scientist, etc.)

it would be cool to have a brief description on what it's about in the post, so I know whether or not to spend 11 mins watching something I might or might not be interested in.
