Amazon.com, the purveyor of just about anything and everything your little e-tailer shopping heart can possibly want, has released the first official image from their upcoming “Zombieland” TV series. Check it out below, people who enjoy checking out things online.
Written by original “Zombieland” movie writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the online TV series will pick up where the movie left off, with the foursome of Tallahassee (Kirk Ward), Wichita (Maiara Walsh), Columbus (Tyler Ross) and Little Rock (Izabela Vidovic) once again trying to brave the zombie apocalypse. Hilarity, we assume, ensues.
The pilot episode was directed by Eli Craig (of “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil” fame).
So how will you be able to catch “Zombieland”? Well, the show is currently just in the pilot stage, which you’ll be able to view for free on Amazon Instant Video and LOVEFiLM UK. If enough viewers watch the pilot, and Amazon gets good feedback from it, they will green light the show for a full season. I’m guessing you will then have to pay for the episodes after the initial pilot.
Besides “Zombieland”, Amazon also has 12 other pilots in development, that you will be able to see for free on Amazon Instant Video.
Welcome to the Brave New World of content on demand, folks.
