2017 Tony Awards - ArrivalsForget boiling bunnies — Glenn Close wants to eat brains.

The Emmy-winning actress is returning to series television for the first time since "Damages." According to the Hollywood Reporter, she'll star in Amazon's comedy pilot "Sea Oak," about a woman who turns into a zombie after dying in a home invasion.

In life, Aunt Bernie was a meek, unmarried wallflower in Rust Belt City. But in death, she taps into her rage and is determined to get the life she never had. Aunt Bernie proceeds to inflict demands on her quasi-stripper nephew and two nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized housing project called Sea Oak.

Close won two Emmys as a lead drama actress for her performance as take-no-prisoners lawyer Patty Hewes in "Damages." Since the show concluded in 2012, Close has mostly been doing films, including "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Great Gilly Hopkins."
