THE SYNOPSIS

Set amidst a southern wedding, ZOH follows a Maid of Honor and her zombie bridesmaids as they seek to overcome the social and political injustices of their hometown.

After a tragic accident left Lizzie and Rachel Dawson orphaned, Lizzie has cared for her little sister in every way.  So it’s no surprise, on Rachel’s wedding day, Lizzie takes her Maid of Honor duties very seriously, maybe a little too seriously. 

While Rachel suffers through a spa morning with the mother of the groom, Lizzie is tasked with getting Rachel's bridesmaids and childhood best friends aisle ready. Somewhere between town gossip, curlers, and mimosas, Lizzie electrocutes the bridesmaids to death. In a total panic, Lizzie enlists the help of an old flame to bring them back to life…as zombies, the unpopular and loathed group of the Carolina township.   

 

Without the heart or confidence to tell Rachel about the bridesmaids, Lizzie works tirelessly to help the zombies adapt, all while hanging twinkle lights, setting place cards, and dealing with wedding guests. When the time comes to tell Rachel the news, the conservative, evil mother of the groom has beat her to it, casting the zombie bridesmaids out on their own and pitting Lizzie and Rachel against each other. 

With a little help, the sisters come out of the fight stronger than ever and the bridal party makes it to the altar just in time for the ceremony…BUT when all is about to go off without a hitch, the mother of the groom leads an attack on the zombie bridesmaids. Lizzie and Rachel are left with a choice: Stick to the status quo? Or defend their zombie bridesmaids' honor?

WHY ZOH MATTERS

 

 

Through the lens of the lavish wedding industry, writers Adriana and Barrett unveil the inner workings of southern society in a twisted, tongue in cheek comedy about sisterhood. Through the power of storytelling, the Carolina girls hope to shine a light on a culture and an industry caught behind the curve.
