Zombie Series Season 1 Episode 1
James Ramos & Briana Brown
The news breaks in and the first thing we see are zombies
scattered through the city and a frightened news reporter.
This is crazy! This isn’t anything
like I’ve seen before in my life!
We have no idea who or what they
are, if they’re alive or dead, we
Cuts to police fighting off zombies as people in the back
are running and screaming.
What ever anyone does, PLEASE don’t
come to Cape May! It’s way too
dangerous over here! Keep away!
They’re EXTREMELY dangerous!
Cuts to another reporter on the roof of a building.
If they bite you, you turn into one
of them; again, if they BITE you,
you turn into one of them! A heavy
blow to the head will put them down
Cuts to more zombies roaming the towns and attacking people.
Please, everyone-just stay in
He’s interrupted by loud banging on the rooftop door.
CAMERA MAN (O.C)
Damn! They found us!
We have to go! Now! Hurry!
The door breaks open and we hear zombies yelling/screeching
from a distance. The camera cuts off.
INT. DAMON’S CAR. DAY. 3 MONTHS EARLIER.
It’s mid day. We see DAMON, 45, is driving the SUV he and
his wife, Trish, 42 had owned for quite some time. They’re
driving down a road surrounded by trees and bushes. We see
Trish is on her cell phone, in the middle of a conversation
So what did you guys want for
dinner? Any requests?
Me and your dad are going to the
store now. Everything at the doctor
went fine; thank God.
Damon turns up the A.C a little bit.
So here’s what I’ll do; I’ll get
some chicken and once I leave there
I’ll figure out something to make.
Did you guys want dessert or
Okay, that’s fine. I’ll see you
when I get home. Love you too. Bye.
She hangs up the phone.
Who was that?
Xavier. I missed him so much. When
I texted him saying I was finally
out, he called me not even two
Well, that’s our kid. He missed
you, we all missed you. I’m really
glad you finally get to be home
with us again.
Me too, Damon...it was getting a
little too lonely there.
We’ll make sure that never happens
They smile at each other and Trish kisses him.
So I was thinking we should make
chicken alfredo or
fajitas...something with chicken,
I’m not in the mood for beef or
It’s up to you, honey. What ever
You know I hate when you do that.
What ever I like to cook no one
Well yeah, you make salads and
soups, those are just starters.
What do you expect with three men
in the house. On top of that,
Kierra doesn’t even like salad.
Well...I guess I’ll have a decision
when we go into the store. You
don’t know how long I wanted to
just cook, go out again, be in my
house again. I really am blessed
with the life I have right now.
So is this it? No more doctor’s
Oh, Damon, you know I can’t do
that. I don’t think I’ll ever have
a "last" appointment.
Well, why not? He’s gonna have to
start giving you a free gas gift
card or something. He’s damn near
two hours and some change away.
You’re too much, I swear. Well,
it’s just in case if anything were
to happen. God forbid, it could get
worse at any second. It’s just a
precaution. I mean, come on, you
know you, Xavier and Kierra could
never live without me.
That is true, I’ll give you that.
Do you think our eldest with the
emotions of steel would?
Phoenix...just has a funny way of
He shows it?
Come on, he’s a good kid, you know
that. He’s just his own person. We
need to learn how to respect that.
He can show a tad bit more respect
is all. Other than that, he’s okay.
I’m not saying he’s not the devil
He can be at times.
They both laugh.
INT. LIVING ROOM. DAY.
A beautiful 19 year old girl, KIERRA, is sitting at the
dining table, signing a birthday card. She finishes, smiles
and kisses the card softly. We can see it’s a birthday card
for her mom.
XAVIER, Kierra’s twin, comes into the living room as well.
Hey...what are you up to?
Nothing, just got done signing
mom’s birthday card. You’re signing
it too, right?
Yeah, I will in a bit.
He goes into the kitchen.
What did mom say about dinner?
She doesn’t know yet!
Kierra walks into the kitchen.
(leaning against doorway)
I was thinking we should cook for
her today. I mean, she hasn’t been
home for awhile. I don’t want her
cooking when she FIRST gets here.
(grabbing a can of soda)
Well, what did you wanna do? Order
pizza? None of us can cook.
That’s not true! I mean...we can
try, right? I can try making
something that’s at least a little
That sounds nice, but we’re trying
to keep mom AWAY from the hospital,
She laughs and playfully hits him. She puts the birthday
card on the kitchen counter with a pen.
It’s here whenever you’re ready.
I’ll go and tell Phoenix.
Xavier nods, and Kierra leaves.
We see 24 year old PHOENIX, the eldest of the siblings,
sitting on the picnic table, doing scratch-offs. He often
wore white and black beaters to show off his tattoos on his
arms. He flicks the cigarette away from him and continues.
Kierra comes out and stands next to him.
I won 3 bucks...
That’s alright. Maybe this next one
could be a big winner knowing my
Kierra laughs, getting Phoenix’s sarcastic humor.
Are you going to sign mom’s card? I
picked one up for her birthday. I
signed it already.
Yeah, yeah sure. Just let me get my
gambling addiction all out then
I’ll be right in.
You and those scratch off.
You get at least 3 scratch offs a
day. I’m surprised you’re not dead
You should also be surprised AND
happy for me. This is one of the
FEW things I do that’s actually
I don’t know what you’re addicted
to more, gambling, cigarettes or
that hippie flower.
One, weed isn’t addicting, and two,
you forgot sex.
Wow, okay! TMI!
Phoenix chuckles and finishes the scratch off. He tosses it
when he doesn’t win anything, and goes to the next one.
Phoenix...I know you weren’t around
much then, but...thanks for
sticking around for mom today.
No, I mean it, really-it’ll mean a
Alright, alright, alright. Come on
Kierra, you know I don’t like that
Short pause. Kierra turns around and starts for the door.
Kierra turns to him and smiles. Phoenix lights up another
cigarette and completes his scratch off.
Kierra walks back into the kitchen. Xavier just gets done
signing the card.
Anything else? There’s some
shooting upstairs that has to be
One more thing...I was thinking I
should do the cake tomorrow on her
actual birthday. What do you think?
That sounds good to me...why?
I don’t know. I think it’ll be
better to do it that way.
Yeah, I get you. What kind of cake
did you get her?
Wanna see it?
She goes into the freezer and takes out a rather big ice
cream cake. When she opens the box she sees that a corner
piece is missing. Kierra, mad, turns and looks at Xavier.
Don’t look at me, I didn’t even
know you bought her that.
Oh, I’m not blaming you...
Phoenix walks into the kitchen, and stops, seeing the look
on Kierra’s face.
(points at the cake)
No one told me it was saved for
She closes the box.
INT. LIVING ROOM. EVENING
The front door to the house opens. Damon is setting the
groceries on the counter.
(going into the kitchen)
Trish walks in, and closes the door behind her.
(calling for her kids)
Hello?? Xavier? Phoenix? Kierra?
She sets her things on the counter and looks around. She
walks into the kitchen.
Where are they?
I’m not sure. Maybe they went out
Trish turns behind her and sees Xavier standing by the
doorway with a rose in his hand.
Welcome home, mom.
Trish’s eyes fill with tears and she gives him a very tight,
big hug, as Xavier hugs back just as tight.
Hey sweetie! How are you? I missed
I missed you more...I’m so happy
you’re okay. I’m happy it didn’t
get any worse...
Me too. Thank God you’re all okay!
I promise I won’t be gone for this
long ever again.
That’s all I wanted to hear.
She looks at him and takes the rose, smiling. The front door
opens and Kierra walks in with a bag in her hand.
Where’s your brother and sister?
They hear the front door open.
Xavier! I got it!
She walks in the kitchen with a bag in her hand and sees
Oh My God!! Mom!!!
She runs and hugs Trish tight, almost crying. Trish is
already in tears.
Kierra! How are you, honey?
A thousand times better now that
you’re finally here!
They exchange looks and hug each other again.
It’s nice to know that no matter
how old you brats get, you still
show how much you love her.
They all laugh.
What’s in the bag, Kierra?
(almost forgot she had it in
Oh-um, nothing, nothing!
(knowing what it is)
Kierra, go tell your brother to
come down here. She’s dying to see
Sure...Xavier, come on!
She runs upstairs. Xavier laughs and goes upstairs as well.
What was that about?
Who knows with her. She reminds me
of you when we were young.
Hey...we still are young! Okay? And
don’t forget that, sir.
Sure thing, mistress.
They both laugh and Trish gets out all the groceries and
gets started on dinner.
INT. XAVIER’S ROOM.
Kierra and Xavier walk in the bedroom. Kierra sets the bag
down and takes out a very nice jewelery box on Xavier’s
Got it. If only I’d gotten home
twenty minutes earlier. Ugh!
Hey, at least she didn’t see it or
I guess. Here, hide it somewhere.
Because apparently I suck at hiding
Since 2 minutes ago. Have you seen
Phoenix? Is he home?
No...he still didn’t come back.
Are...you sure? He said he would be
Check if you want but I didn’t see
him or hear him come back.
Kierra walks up to Phoenix’s door and knocks on it. She
tries opening it but it’s locked.
No response. She knocks again, a little bit louder and waits
a minute. Still no response. Xavier walks over to her.
Is he in there?
His door is locked...he should be,
You’re talking about our brother
who used to sneak out of his own
window to avoid waking up mom or
But...he said he would be here.
Come on...maybe he just got into a
little bit of trouble. Let’s at
least try and have a good day. Mom
is back, that should be good
You’re right...okay, let’s go. I’ll
call him a little later.
They both go downstairs.
INT. DINING ROOM.
Damon is setting up the table and Trish is having a glass of
wine, standing with him. Kierra and Xavier come to the
dining table and join them.
I don’t know.
What do you mean you don’t know?
He’s not in his room?
It was locked. I know he left
earlier but...he said he would be
Christ, that kid, man...
Damon, it’s fine. Please, just let
No, I’m sick and tired of letting
him slide. He knew what today meant
to every single one of us. Him not
showing up today pretty much tells
us it didn’t mean a damn thing to
He’s grown, now. He’s an adult.
Every time he upsets you it doesn’t
really mean he’s doing something
he’s not supposed to.
If he’s grown he needs to show more
respect, now. He’s not eighteen
If he’s late we can just have
dinner without him...you all know
how he is.
Pause. Damon sighs. Trish walks closer to Damon and looks
into his eyes.
Honey, trust me. It’ fine.
Please just relax. All I want to do
is eat and have a good, peaceful
night. I haven’t had a good night
since the day I stepped foot in
I just want happy days. No more
tough days, I’ve had one too many
(smiles, kissing his cheek)
INT. LIVING ROOM. EARLY MORNING.
We see Phoenix slowly creeping inside, under the influence
of marijuana. He looks at the clock which read "3:33 AM". As
he makes his way to the stairs, Damon comes in the house
through the patio door and spots him. They both stop in
their tracks and look at each other.
Where were you?
Out? Out where? Must’ve been more
important than seeing your mom come
home from the hospital.
I don’t have to answer you anymore.
Those days were over the second I
I understand you’re an "adult" now,
but you’re STILL under my house,
and I’m still providing a room,
food, and everything else. Get your
own place if you don’t want to hear
(rolls his eyes)
Why weren’t you here? She was
FINALLY coming home from the
hospital after so many months. This
is what you wanted too, and right
when she’s here, you don’t bother
to show up. What kind of man are
You’re probably one of the most
dramatic people that I have ever
met. Every time I don’t impress you
or meet up to your retarded
standards, you have a ******** fit
all the time. It’s stupid. Sorry
I’m not perfect, and I’m sorry I’m
not the perfect son that you
dreamed of having. It’s not my
******** fault though.
I don’t think you’ll ever learn how
to respect your parents...do you
even respect yourself? When are you
going to grow up? You haven’t
changed a bit.
It’s my life, and maybe that’s
exactly how I want it to be. Jesus,
I swear, you are the LAST person in
the whole ******** world I would
choose for a parent. The LAST
He goes upstairs to his room and slams the door shut.
INT. DAMON’S BEDROOM.
Damon walks into the bedroom and sits down on the bed,
opposite from Trish. She sits up and looks at him. There’s a
short pause. Trish shakes her head and gets up from the bed,
INT. PHOENIX’S ROOM.
Trish cracks open his door. She sees Phoenix sitting on his
bed, really upset and mad.
Hello? Can I come in?
You know you can.
Trish smiles and walks in the room, closing the door behind
her. She looks at him, then walks up to him.
Things aren’t the same
They’ll never be the same. It seems
like the older I get the more
bullshit I hear from your damn
Don’t talk like that. He’s your
father as much as he’s my husband.
And yes, sometimes you do have to
hear him out. He’s right.
You don’t think I know that?
Sometimes I even wonder why I stick
around here anymore. It’s like
every single thing I do, it upsets
someone. Why can’t everyone just
leave me alone?
You’re not a child anymore,
Phoenix. You don’t need me or your
dad to tell you what’s right and
what’s wrong anymore. You should
know that by now.
I do what I want. That’s acting
like an adult as far as I’m
I understand that. But growing up
isn’t really what it’s all cracked
up to be. It comes with a lot of
responsibility and understanding
the fact of having a dinner with
your family is more important than
Trish and Phoenix laugh, sensing Trish’s lighthearted humor.
You know deep down in the bottom of
your heart that you’ll always be my
special boy under those tattoos and
Yeah...you tell me that all the
I remember when you came home with
your first tattoo. Your father went
Insane isn’t the word. Hostile
would probably be it.
I think it’s because you’re growing
up to be the guy he once was a half
They both laugh and Trish notices Phoenix’s smile hasn’t
You know...we do understand you. Me
and your father were your age once.
Just try and grasp the fact that
family is a lot more important than
I won’t lecture you...you’re an
adult, just like you said. But just
always keep in mind; you’re never
too old to realize the good that
has been around you all this time.
Trish kisses her fist and softly nudges her fist at his
cheek, playfully. Phoenix chuckles and looks at her.
I know I gotta use tough love when
it comes to you. I’ll see you
Sure thing, mom.
She heads for the door.
Hey, mom...I love you.
I love you more. Goodnight.
She leaves his room.
INT. TRISH’S CAR. MORNING.
Trish is in her car, listening to her favorite song. She’s
driving on her way to work, we can tell she has gotten and
feels a lot better than before. She arrives and parks her
She enters the office and her workers surprise her with a
cake and coffee. Trish laughs and smiles, and goes to hug
everyone. They all wish her a happy birthday and a "welcome
INT. KITCHEN. NOON.
Kierra is in the fridge, taking out a can of diet cola. She
takes a sip and takes a deep breath. She walks aimlessly
around the house and notices Phoenix outside in the
backyard. She then goes outside to him.
Phoenix is smoking a cigarette, staring off into the
distance. He looks like he has a lot on his mind. Kierra
comes near him.
Your undivided attention would be
He turns to her. There’s a short pause.
I heard what happened last night.
It woke me up.
Now’s not the time.
Now’s not the time for what?
To get a lecture from my
I don’t want to lecture you...all I
wanna do is talk. When will I ever
get that chance to have a deep
conversation with you?
What happened with you? I want my
older brother back...when we were
kids, all you used to do was look
after me. Every time I was with
you, I knew I had nothing to worry
What’s the problem? You have Damon,
right? You also have Xavier. I
don’t see what you still need me
Because you’re you. And that’s who
I truly miss...is you.
Long pause. Phoenix turns away.
Hope you’re not expecting an
No, I never do...but if you wanted
to make it up...please be here
tonight. It’ll mean a lot to
Who will it impress? Our dad?
Someone who I don’t even want to
Mom will be very happy...when we
were on the phone she always talked
about you. Wondered how you were
doing, if you’re okay...it’ll mean
a lot to her...and me. That’s all.
This isn’t about dad...it’s mom’s
day. Let’s try and make it the best
one she’s ever had.
She walks away.
INT. KITCHEN. LATE NOON.
Kierra is lighting candles on the birthday cake on the
counter. Xavier comes in with the jewelery box in his hand.
It has a small bow on it.
Think she’s gonna like it?
Of course. She needs somewhere to
put all of her jewelery. I got her
He sets the jewelery box down and takes out a silver
necklace with an angel on it.
Wow...that’s beautiful! She’s gonna
love it! I can’t wait, she’ll be
home any second now!
She’s going to be stoked!
We see Trish’s car pull in the drive way. She gets out the
car, a bit slow and a little out of breath. She makes her
way to the house door and comes in.
Suddenly, her eyes roll in the back of her head and she
collapses hard on the ground. Xavier and Kierra hear the
thud. They quickly run to the front door and see Trish
laying on the ground, unconsciously.
Oh my God! MOM!!!!!
Xavier runs beside her. Kierra starts going into shock and
starts crying hysterically. Phoenix rushes in and sees what
Quick! Call 911! She’s not
What do you mean?? What’s wrong
with her?? MOM!!
Kierra, Kierra, calm down! Relax!
Phoenix! Get the phone!!!
Phoenix runs and gets the phone out and calls 911.
Hello? 911? We have an emergency!!!
EXT. PARKING LOT. EVENING.
Damon is heading to his car, just getting off of work. Right
before he gets into his car, his phone rings. He answers it.
Hey Xavier, what’s up?
Silence. Damon’s face changes, as he’s listening to Xavier
on the other line. He hangs up, rushes into his car and
hurries out the parking lot.
INT. HOSPITAL. NIGHT.
Damon rushes in the hospital and runs to the stairs, heading
to the floor level his kids are in. He rushes down the hall
and meets up with Kierra, Phoenix and Xavier in the hallway,
outside the trauma room Trish is in.
She runs up to him and they hug extremely tight.
What happened? Is she ok? Where is
(almost in tears)
I don’t know; w-we just saw her
lying on the floor, unconscious...I
don’t know what happened...
Is she gonna be ok? I’m so scared
It’s going to be ok, Kierra, trust
We see Phoenix is against the wall, in total shock. He’s
stiff as a statue and is staring aimlessly into the
How long has she been in there?
It’s been like...
He’s interrupted by the door opening, and the doctor coming
out of the room.
Doctor! Is she ok? What happened to
I wanna see her...I wanna see my
Pause. The doctor looks at everyone then slowly shakes his
Wh...what do y-you mean?
I’m so sorry...
We...really did all we can do.
Kierra falls to her knees and starts crying her eyes out,
which has everyone watching.
No, no, no...!! NO!
Damon starts sobbing, as the doctor goes to hug him. Xavier
is shedding a few tears, holding Kierra close. Phoenix is in
shock, and then goes and punches the wall out of anger
