NEW YORK, March 12 (UPI) -- Production has begun in New York City on BrainDead, a new comic-thriller set in the world of Washington, D.C. politics, CBS announced.

Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Danny Pino, Aaron Tveit, Tony Shalhoub, Nikki M. James and Johnny Ray Gill, the show is set to premiere this summer.

The latest brainchild of Robert and Michelle King, creators and executive producers of The Good Wife, follows "a young, fresh-faced Hill staffer getting her first job in Washington, D.C. and discovering two things: The government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to Earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of Congressmen and Hill staffers," a synopsis said.
