Transcript for Omar Epps Stars in ABC's 'Resurrection'
I've been waiting for this. Imagine a long deceased loved one suddenly comes back after years after their death to life. That is the basis of a new and very mysterious show here on ABC called "Resurrection." Star omar Epps here to discuss it and, again, we were just saying when we saw this at months ago this hooked us. It's about this basic thing, any of us who lost a loved one, the idea they could come back. It's a real emotional tent pole for this show. That's what drew me in. I feel like the true connective tissue to all humanity is life and death. Beyond ethnicity and class is something that we all -- we're alive and know that physically we all have our day. So I just feel like, you know, the premise of the story was something that would really be good. Coming back from the dead. We're not talking zombies? No, not like a creepy zombie. It's like people return in the state they were when they pass so -- Wow. In our pilot this young boy who was 8 when he passed comes back when he's 8 and his parents are 30 years older and he's just a little boy like I don't know what what happened but I'm here now. What's up? It'll be the first time we see it but it won't be the last time we see something like that happen in this show. Right, right, but we do, you know, it's only eight episodes in the first season I whithink bodes well, invest in the characters and a pump returning. A great cast including kurtwoodsmith, yourself, like really -- it's in good hands. Yeah, definitely. Deaf inkelly, Matt craven, mark -- And the young -- Landon Jiminez. His first big Hollywood gig. Probably not his first. Welcome. I know you'll be on "The view" later to discuss it more. Watching Sunday night. 9:00, ABC. Right here on ABC. Omar Epps, thanks for coming
