‘BrainDead’ is a new CBS series that begins tonight. The series tries to explain the strange things that politicians do, in what could be the weirdest way possible.
The show follows Laurel (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who is a fresh-faced Hill staffer who finds out two things.
1) The government has stopped working.
2) Bugs are eating the brains of congress members.
Yep, bugs. The show, according to the cast, is a strange mix of The West Wing meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers with some Men in Black and Mars Attacks!. In the interview above hear from Winstead, Aaron Tveit, Danny Pino, Tony Shalhoub and the producers of ‘BrainDead’ as they try to explain their absurd but hilarious plot, and how the show is only going to make more sense as the presidential campaign continues.
The BrainDead series premiere is tonight, June 13, 2016, at 10:00 PM Et on CBS.
