“Zombieland,” one of the greatest zombie comedies of our time, is being developed as an original TV series, according to Broadcast Now. However, rather than going the traditional broadcast route, the series seems to be headed to Amazon’s instant video service.
The film, which starred Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg, was originally planned as a TV series by writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick before it made the transition to the big screen. After the film’s success, and talk of a sequel that never happened, there were rumors that a weekly series was headed to FOX. Apparently those plans have changed.
While details on the TV series are pretty slim, io9 recently reported that characters Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock are all set to return, along with newcomers Fred and Ainsley – two office workers more concerned with their iPhones then the undead horde outside their window.
It’ll be interesting to see the franchise reborn with a new cast. We’re just hoping the humor and overall feel of the film are intact. What are your thoughts on a “Zombieland” TV series? Sound off in the comments below!
