Tonight a new post-apocalyptic Web TV show launches with a bang — or maybe that's a whimper. Lady Wasteland tells three interconnected stories about life after a mysterious force brings down civilization. There won't be any guys in tankers searching for spam here. Show creators Mark Rouche and Greg Demchek say they were inspired by Cormac McCarthy's book The Road and the movie Children of Men, both of which are character-driven, realistic dramas about the bleakness of life after society's death. The show, a stylish cross between Xena and Firefly, is grim and very promising. Also, seriously action-packed.
The creators say:
This is the adventure of Lady Wasteland. A story rooted in the misfortune of individuals left to scour a vast wasteland in search of their own private destiny. Each character: a fragment, a survivor, a wanderer. In a god-forsaken landscape after the collapse of civilized society, we find a generation left for dead, fueled by revenge, apathy, absurdity, and the need to find a piece of food.
Check it out.
