Zombie uber survivors Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and spunky Little Rock return in Amazon’s “Zombieland” TV series, with the pilot episode directed by Eli Craig (“Tucker and Dale vs. Evil”). Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the guys who wrote the original “Zombieland” movie, return to script the TV series.
As mentioned in a previous post, Amazon will be giving you the chance to watch the pilot episode for free online via their Instant Video service. The title will be made available here, though at the moment there’s nothing there yet, just a “Coming Soon” logo.
“Zombieland” is just one of many shows that the e-tailer giant is rolling out as part of their original programming launch, with the shows getting the best response from viewers going to series. So basically it’s up to you whether “Zombieland” goes further than this 30-minute pilot.
For those still not sold on the show, especially with none of the original castmembers reprising their roles, you can check out the minute long trailer below to get a feel for the show they’re going for, and whether you should waste your time on it or not when it does become available:
