What if sleep could kill you? In Rooster Teeth’s new horror show Day 5, death by sleep is a very real thing.
After a crazy meth drug bender, addict Jake (Jesse C Boyd) walks back out into the world and discovers that everyone who has gone to sleep in the last 5 days has died. John teams up with an eclectic group of survivors, including an overnight Doctor, a red-eye pilot, late-shift workers and teenagers. The show begins on Day 5 of the epidemic, with the group struggling to stay awake or die.
The show features Jesse C. Boyd (The Choice, The Wanderers) as Jake, Walker Satterwhite (My All American) as Sam, Davi Jay (Walking Dead, True Detective) as Ellis, Stephanie Drapeau (The Catch, Finding Carter) as Ally, Lee Eddy (Red vs Blue) as Alexis, Aaron Spivey-Sorrells (Lazer Team, American Crime) as Cain, Garrett Graham (The Divergent Series: Allegiant, American Crime) as Dave, Joel Heyman (Red vs Blue, RWBY) as Bill, and Jessica Schwartz (American Crime) as Nicole. Day 5 is written by Josh Flanagan, Chris Demarais, Aaron Marquis and Mark Bristol.
Even as someone with insomnia, not even I think I could survive this world.
