Zombieland TV Show Coming to Amazon Prime

Zombieland TV Show

In an effort to make it’s Prime Instant Video service a competitor to Hulu and Netflix, Amazon is producing a TV show based on the hit movie, Zombieland. The TV show spinoff has been labeled a comedy and will be original programming for Amazon Studios. The show is just one of many – Amazon has 12 original show pilots currently in production including six children shows and four other comedies.

Zombieland is a fan favorite and we can’t wait to see where this story line goes in a serialized format,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “We’ve been announcing a lot of exciting exclusive content for Prime Instant Video, like Downton Abbey, Under the Dome, and Justified, and we think adding original shows to that lineup is going to make Prime even more enticing for customers.”

Zombieland is based on the hit Columbia Pictures movie of the same name, and finds four survivors outwitting zombies and searching for a place to call home. The Zombieland pilot comes from the feature film’s original creative team, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Joe Schmo Show), and producer Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm). Eli Craig (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) is directing the pilot.

The part of Tallahassee will be played by Kirk Ward (The Island), Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewives, Switched at Birth) is cast as Wichita, Tyler Ross (Milkshake) will play Columbus, and Izabela Vidovic has the role of Little Rock.

“Zombieland will strive to break the rules—action, adventure, thrills, chills and laughs and all packed into a half hour format,” said creator Paul Wernick. “This is not your average show but Amazon is not your average network.”

The Cyber Slacker Catch-Up – What You Might Have Missed this Week

The Cyber Slacker Catch-Up

  • If Superheroes Had Product Sponsors

We’ve all seen product placement in movies. Movies such as Skyfall, Taken 2, Paranormal Activity, The Twilight Saga, Ted, and Argo that were in theaters in 2012-featured brands from Apple to Adidas, Coke Zero to Xbox, and Toyota to KFC.

Superhero movies aren’t exempt from product placements either; The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spiderman featured Doritos, Ben & Jerry’s, Greyhound, Budweiser and many more.  Seeing a product placed in a scene here and there doesn’t bother most movie buffs, but what if it was taken to a whole new level and brands started sponsoring Superheroes?  Thanks to Roberto Vergati Santos – Sponsored Heroes we can catch a glimpse of just that:

A One Direction fan threw her shoe on stage during a concert in Glasgow, Scotland, on Tuesday, hitting band member Harry Styles in the groin.  In honor of that, here is an awesome gif of Captain America doing the same thing but with mad shoe flinging skillz.
