The series stars newcomers Mina-Siale, Nick Annas, Ruby Archer and Isaiah Galloway, and finds bandmates Ella and Nick stuck in a zombie-infested ABC building, surviving on vending machine snacks while they try to finish off the song that'll take them to the big leagues. But when Ella’s high school nemesis, Veronica, and Nick’s crippling celebrity crush, Locksley, appear out of thin air, they feel their chances of escaping and - more importantly - of winning Unearthed High start to slip away.
