Premieres Friday, April 1 at 8 PM ET/PT on Syfy

          That’s right, everybody throw your hands up in the air because the post-apocalyptic, zombie Western mashup flick – from the makers of SHARKNADO – stars members of beloved, world famous boy bands Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, 98 Degrees and O-Town!

         “DEAD 7” tells the story of a ragtag band of gunslingers who team up to rid a small town of a zombie plague in the post-apocalyptic West. The two-hour movie is headlined by Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter (last season’s “Dancing with the Stars” runner-up), playing Jack, the reluctant hero who unites the town’s outlaws in a showdown against the zombie menace.

 

       Also starring in “DEAD 7” are Carter’s wife, actress Lauren Kitt-Carter, Backstreet Boys AJ McLean and Howie Dorough; *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick; 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons; O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada, Jacob Underwood, Trevor Penick and Dan Miller; Carrie Keagan (“Reno 911!”); Debra Wilson (“MadTV”); Frenchie Davis (Season 2 “American Idol,” and “The Voice” Season 1 semifinalist); Gerardo Mejía (of “Rico Suave” fame); Everclear’s Art Alexakis and Grammy winner Jon Secada.

          “DEAD 7” leads into the previously highlighted premiere of Syfy’s new 13-episode supernatural action drama, “WYNONNA EARP”, airing at 10PM ET/PT and starring Melanie Scrofano as the titular gun-slinging heroine.
