There’s a new movement coming down real fast in the world of new TV shows. Broadcasters are becoming irrelevant, thanks to services such as Hulu and Netflix providing the content that people want, when they want it, and now Amazon is getting some of that pie for themselves as well.
Amazon is looking to bring back the cult hit movie Zombieland, albeit as a TV series. But of course, in order to get some backing and gauge the response to that, they’re going to need a pilot to help sell the show. A pilot, which you can see the trailer for after the break.
I dig it. At the moment, The Walking Dead is the first comparison here, but it’s obvious that Zombieland is going in a lighter, bloodier direction. Instead of a weekly whinge-fest that the original comics put to shame. Writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese seem to be keeping that flippant Bill Murray-murdering nature from the original film intact.
If you like what you see, then watch when it arrives on Amazon as that will determine the future of the series. Zombieland stars Kirk Ward as Tallahassee, Tyler Ross as Columbus, Maiara Walsh as Wichita, Izabela Vidovic as Little Rock and the rules of survival.
