Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth) has landed a new gig called "Project: Phoenix." The web series is about a covert black ops organization, that, after an incident on an airplane, is tasked with stopping an outbreak of an infectious disease, which could lead to a zombie apocalypse.

The series also stars Sherilynn Fenn ("Twin Peaks"), Kathy Deitch (Broadway's "Footloose") and James Logan ("The Mechanic"). Watch the pilot and then go to Indiegogo/Project: Phoenix if you'd like to help support the continuation of the project.
