Good most recently starred on the NBC series “Deception,” which ran for one season in 2013, and also appeared opposite Will Ferrell in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

“Babylon Fields” is a zombie-like drama, according to the network’s description.

“The dead are rising in Babylon, NY, and as a result, lives are regained, old wounds are reopened and families are restored — for better or worse. The newly regenerated bodies are healing faster and growing stronger than anyone else leading to the suspicion that they might be the next step in human evolution,” the network says.

Good is represented by Nick Collins and Steven Gersh at Gersh Agency. “Babylon Fields” is a 20th Century Fox Studios project executive produced by Gerald Cuesta, Michael Atkinson, and Michael Cuesta, who is also directing the pilot.
