They need to find a cure before the entire world is eaten, dead, or worse... No pressure, right? For years, horror fans have enjoyed reading and dissecting Steven C. Schlozman's The Zombie Autopsies: Secret Notes from the Apocalypse, and now a virtual reality series adaptation is in development.

Here's what 44 Blue Productions President and Co-Founder Stephanie Drachkovitch had to say about the miniseries:
“We are absolutely captivated by The Zombie Autopsies and know these subject matters will resonate with today’s modern audiences. The role culture, society and technology have on the evolution of madness in the human psyche is extremely timely, while virtual reality is primed for the next long-form thriller.”
A release date and distribution platform for the miniseries are not yet known, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, we have the book's official synopsis and cover art below:
"As the walking dead rise up throughout the world, a few brave doctors attempt to find a cure by applying forensic techniques to captured zombies.
On a remote island a crack medical team has been sent to explore a radical theory that could uncover a cure for the epidemic. Based on the team's research and the observations of renowned zombie expert Dr. Stanley Blum, THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES documents for the first time the unique biology of zombie organisms.
Detailed drawings of the internal organs of actual zombies provide an accurate anatomy of these horrifying creatures. Zombie brains, hearts, lungs, skin, and digestive system are shown, while Dr. Blum's notes reveal shocking insights into how they function--even as Blum and his colleagues themselves begin to succumb to the plague.
No one knows the ultimate fate of Dr. Blum or his researchers. But now that his notebook, THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES, has been made available to the UN, the World Health Organization, and the general public, his scientific discoveries may be the last hope for humans on earth."
