What a great week for Zombie TV Show news! First I hear that Z Nation has a premiere date (next week!), and then I hear that the pilot episode for a companion series to “The Walking Dead” has been ordered.
TV is going to get even better for Zombie fans!
According to this article in Liberty Voice, the TV Series is “yet to be named” and will take place in a different location that The Walking Dead does.
Of course the pilot script has already been written, but if Robert Kirkman is looking for filming locations, might I suggest Colorado? I mean Georgia is great and all, but you can cover the whole “What happens to Zombies in cold weather” topic. Not to mention the cast and crew could sample our wonderful micro-brews. Just saying…
Right now, according to the article, Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson wrote the pilot, although right now it’s not clear if they will be writing all of the episodes once the series is ordered.
I say “when the series is ordered”, because I just don’t see AMC turning it down. The Walking Dead is so insanely popular, there’s no way they won’t order it. Of course that could be as much wishful thinking as anything else. Keep your severed fingers crossed.
