Synopsis:

“Back for More” is a comedic web series about a passive aggressive and occasionally aggressive, high functioning zombie called Bob. Each episode Bob sets out, sometimes with the help of his wife Ramona, to better himself despite the opposition of many people around him, not the least of which is Bob’s brother Brian who believes this reincarnation from hell is, in his words, “A hornet’s nest on the family tree.”

It’s a dark comedy designed to satirize the factors contributing to the growing divide between the rich and the poor. As a subplot, the series also explores sibling rivalry.
