Come On, You Know You Can’t Get Enough of the Undead: Major Broadcast Network Has Zombie Show in the Works

Oct 18, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Zombies are living it up on TV, with “The Walking Dead” racking up record ratings for AMC, and now one of the broadcast networks wants a piece of the action.

Fox is the most recent network to take on a project about the undead, with the network and Sony Pictures Television developing a comedy based on the popular film "Zombieland," reports Joe Adalian in New York magazine’s Vulture blog.

The project may be placed in development for the 2012-13 television season, the story notes.

"Zombieland" producer and New York magazine columnist Gavin Polone said the original plan was to make "Zombieland" as a television show, and CBS did order a pilot script for the concept in 2005, according to the article. Syfy was interested but the financials didn’t work out, the piece adds.

While there was some work on a sequel to the film, Polone said it’s likely on hold. "If the TV show goes, then the sequel won’t happen," he added.

  1. I know I can’t get enough of the undead, but I’m having a hard time seeing Zombieland as a sequel let alone a TV series. I feel like it would just be the same things we’ve seen before. I guess it just makes me that more interested so I’ll definitely be watching whichever way they go.
