Imagine Cops crossed with Shaun of the Dead, and you have the premise for MTV’s new scripted horror comedy Death Valley. The half-hour series, which premieres on Aug. 29 at 10:30, focuses on a branch of the LAPD called the “Undead Task Force” (UTF) and their battles with various supernatural elements, like zombies, werewolves, and vampires. “Death Valley brings a truly unique blend of comedy and horror to the channel,” says David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming. The cast includes Lost‘s Tania Raymonde and The Hangover‘s Bryan Callen. Watch the (extremely gory!) exclusive trailer below.
