With the season 2 premiere of "The Walking Dead" setting cable ratings records, it was only a matter of time before more zombie shows got the green light. But TV works fast, so in this case "a matter of time" meant about 24 hours. Yesterday, it was announced that a TV series based on the movie "Zombieland" would be going ahead at Fox. It's an interesting move for a number of reasons, not least of which is the incredible popularity of zombies in pop culture at the moment: "The Walking Dead" is an obvious influence, and "World War Z" should only feed the zombie frenzy.
Amazon is really, really hoping you guys like their new shows. As Amazon ventures into streaming their own original series, a la Netflix, they will be relying heavily on viewer recommendations and reaction for which series stay and which disappear without a fuss. In an effort to bring in audiences, they’ve made all of the pilot episodes for their shows available, for free, here… or you can check out trailers for all the episodes here if you don’t feel like taking the risk.
