Fox and Sony Plan a 'Zombieland' TV Series

Zombieland posterWith AMC’s season two premiere of The Walking Dead setting new cable TV ratings records in the highly desirable 18-49 and 25-54 age demographics, it’s probably not a surprise that other networks are scrambling to find their very own zombie gold mine this week.

The first to potentially strike paydirt is Fox, who will reportedly team with Sony Pictures Television to launch a new half hour series based on the 2009 film Zombieland. The feature, which starred Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg as an unlikely duo surviving in the wake of the zombie apocalypse, was a box office hit – earning $75 million in ticket sales and spawning a sequel tentatively set for release next year. Should the series get fast-tracked for a 2012-2013 TV season spot, the film sequel will be scrapped.

Plans are to transition Zombieland into a half-hour weekly comedy series. The show will be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick – the scribes behind the original film – so it seems like at least the tone of the films will come through even if Harrelson and Eisenberg aren’t onboard to reprise their characters.

Should the series come together, it will join an increasingly more crowded horror-on-TV market. Aside from The Walking Dead, shows like Supernatural continue to plug along with no signs of fading any time soon. New series, like MTV’s Death Valley and FX’s American Horror Story have proven that there’s an audience for spooky material on the small screen. Given that The Walking Dead has become such a ratings juggernaut, we expect to see more zombies and things that go bump in the night in the very near future – which is good news for our horror-loving hearts.

Would you watch a weekly episode of Zombieland or would you prefer they make a sequel film with Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson back for more zombie-killing mayhem? Share your thoughts below.
