Carrie Keagan of [mostly] music network VH-1 has joined the cast of the upcoming SyFy original television movie, “Dead 7” in the lead female role opposite Nick Carter [from the Backstreet Boys boy band]. With a script also by Carter, the movie is essentially a zombie western which revolves around a group of gunslingers as they try to navigate their way through the standard, garden variety, zombie-filled post-apocalyptic world. The gunslingers find themselves stranded in a town and are forced to make a choice of either saving the citizens of the town, saving themselves or putting on a concert. No, just a joke on that last one – but no joke, NSYNCâ€™s Joey Fatone and an additional pair of Backstreet Boys [A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough] are also in the cast.
“Dead 7” is expected to premiere in 2016 on the SyFy network.
