Jimmy Kimmel Creates ‘The Voting Dead,’ a Parody of Trump TV and ‘The Walking Dead’ (Video)

Take a look at what ABC’s late-night host thinks would be Trump TV’s first scripted series

With many assuming Donald Trump will launch Trump TV after the election, Jimmy Kimmel suggested an idea for the network’s first scripted series — “The Voting Dead.”

In the trailer for the series, an elderly woman is seated at the polls, waiting for Americans to cast their ballot. But soon, zombies a la “The Walking Dead” are seen climbing the stairs with signs saying, “Hillary 2016,” “Stronger Together” and “I’m With Her.” But even zombies get their “I Voted” stickers.

“On Nov. 8, look out America,” reads the promo text. “They are here.”

The Trump campaign began broadcasting the first installment of what it’s calling a nightly news show on Facebook Live on Monday.

The show will be broadcast on Trump’s Facebook page at 6:30 p.m. ET until Nov. 8 and will be hosted by campaign advisors Boris Epshteyn and Cliff Sims, as well as The Blaze commentator Tomi Lahren.

Trump’s nightly news show will stream his rallies each night and feature pre- and post-event commentary.

Some news outlets, including BuzzFeed, dubbed the event a test drive for Trump TV, a television network that the GOP nominee is rumored to be considering in the event he loses the election.

The New York Times reported last week that  Trump’s his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been trying to ink a deal for a possible Trump network, though the candidate himself has denied it.
