Netflix unleashes the undead in a teaser for its new Resident Evil series.
Based on the popular video game and long-running horror franchise, Resident Evil follows 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker, who have just moved to the idyllic and futuristic Raccoon City with their father. But the sisters quickly sense that all is not as it seems in this manufactured town, and they come to suspect that even their father is hiding dark secrets. Meanwhile, over a decade into the future, in the year 2036, an adult Jade fights to survive in post-apocalyptic London, where people and animals have been infected with the T-virus and turned into zombies.
The new series, created by Andrew Dabb (Supernatural), stars Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, and Tamara Smart, among others.
Resident Evil premieres with eight one-hour episodes on July 14.
