"Fairfield"

Tweetable logline: 

Six teens find out that surviving the zombie apocalypse is only slightly harder than surviving high school


Elevator Pitch: 

High school changes you.

FAIRFIELD is a thriller drama centered around six teens that have nothing in common. When an unknown illness begins to infect their town, they seek shelter in Fairfield High School's library. These teens are not only battling with the insecurities of fitting in, but also the undead creatures trying to kill them. In order to escape with their own lives, they will have to break the social hierarchy and band together to save each other.

Surviving high school is rough; add in a zombie apocalypse and you have the nightmare that is FAIRFIELD.


Production Team:

Isaac Loftus -- Co-writer/Producer

Julian Singleton -- Co-writer

Mattheau O'Brien -- Director

Jennifer Korte -- Associate Producer

Ed Vassallo -- Executive Producer

About the Production: 

"I am a finance major from NYU and put my aspiration of being a producer on hold to follow a more practical career. When Isaac our co-writer told me about this awesome zombies meets John Hughes project he was working on, he convinced me to forgo the corporate internships and join FAIRFIELD as a associate producer. Even though I'm broke compared to my peers working 80 hrs a week, I'm the one living my dream. Can they say the same?" -- Jennifer Korte, Associate Producer

Current Status: 


Pre-production.
