"The Bite" follows the lives of two neighbors, Rachel (Audra McDonald, The Good Fight) and Lily (Taylor Schilling, Orange is the New Black), who have some very fresh problems due to the spread of a deadly new strain of virus. Rachel works from home, juggling her many telemedicine clients and her shaky marriage, while Lily tries to convince her Wall Street clients that her very specialized skills are still just as valuable via a video screen as they were in person.

What is today's zombie incidence, anyway? With "The Bite," Robert and Michelle King, otherwise responsible for politically subtle courtroom classics like "The Good Wife" and "The Good Fight," once again venture creatively into the horror genre after "BrainDead" and "Evil." And in doing so, use a scenario we've become all too familiar with over the past two years. A deadly virus meets "The Walking Dead" here. The result: a horror-comedy with bite.
