The Zombieland TV show heads to Amazon.com

A bit of surprising but potentially very exciting news: Zombieland, the TV series, is no longer going to air on a regular broadcast network. Instead, Amazon.com has snapped it up and is developing the series in hopes of showing it on their instant video service.

The 30-minute episodes would appear on Amazon as original programming. And as we've recently discovered through a few casting pages, the show will center around the original group of post apocalyptic survivors. We're actually fairly optimistic about Amazon producing this series — perhaps this way the creators will attempt to do fewer episodes per season, instead of laboring under a ridiculous 22-episode purchase from a major network. Plus, before Zombieland was a movie it was a TV series pitch, so hopefully there's tons of material to build on, from the movie's original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. [Broadcast Now]
