i. Angus Macgyver (Macgyver)
The #1 draft pick for any kind of post-apocalyptic disaster scenario, this Phoenix Foundation operative can build improvised weapons and makeshift tools from the most sparse resources. An unlikely exemplar of the wonders of maker culture, the graying action hero would likely fulfill the role of Team Dad, by default.

ii. Dr. Elliot Reid (Scrubs)

Any worthwhile zombie survival party needs a group medic. And unlike other more charismatic but troubled healers -- say, Dr. House -- the skilled endocrinologist has a more stable head on her shoulders. Yeah, she can be a tad over-dramatic at times, but she can be trusted to keep her emotions in check under more tense situations.

iii. Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild)
The English adventurer/writer/TV host/Chief Scout has just about every ability needed to survive in the wilderness -- urban and otherwise -- while evading the shambling hordes of undead. According to popular urban lore, this guy is so hardcore, he would simply walk into Mordor.

iv. Claudia Donovan (Warehouse 13)
What can I say? Hacking, stealth, bluff, and evasion skills -- all in one lithe teenage frame. Yes, she's barely legal -- but really, what do the old laws mean in a zombie apocalypse?

v. author Max Brooks (The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z)
Who better to help me survive the zombie apocalypse than the man who literally wrote the book about it -- twice? 'Nuff said.
