If ever you thought that Zoo or Under the Dome had CBS skewing a little out-there with its summer series, boy, is BrainDead going to fry your … uh, right. The new Congress-ate-my-brains alien drama starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Tony Shalhoub has a first trailer, from the creators of The Good Wife, no less.

Lest you think we were joking, so reads the official synopsis for BrainDead, which hits CBS on Monday, June 13 at 10:00 P.M.:

“BrainDead” follows a young, fresh-faced Hill staffer (Winstead) getting her first job in Washington, D.C. and discovering two things: The government has stopped working, and something mysterious is happening to a growing number of Congressmen and Hill staffers.

And its first poster:

In addition to 10 Cloverfield Lane star Winstead and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice Shalhoub, the 13-episode series also features the talents of Danny Pino, Aaron Tveit, Nikki M. James and Johnny Ray Gill. The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King produce, previously describing BrainDead as “The Strain crossed with The West Wing.”

Judge for yourself by the trailer below, and gird your delicious brains.
