Zombieland Pilot Premieres on Amazon (and We Get a Trailer)By: Josh Wolford - April 17, 2013
UPDATE: The pilot has not yet launched, Amazon informs me. And when it does, it will be available to all, not just Prime members.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: The pilot for Amazon’s new original comedy series Zombieland, based on the movie of the same name, is now available for Amazon Prime customers. You can find it here.
“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.”
Zombieland features the same characters from the film – Columbus, Little Rock, Tallahassee, etc. But you wont see Woody Harrelson or Emma Stone. Instead, a new crop of actors take on the now iconic roles Tyler Ross as Columbus, Izabela Vidovic as Little Rock, Kirk Ward as Tallahassee, and Maiara Walsh as Wichita. Some of the film’s original creative team in on board, however, including writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. It’s being directed by Tucker and Dale vs Evil‘s Eli Craig.
You can check out the trailer below:
Zombieland is the 7th comedy pilot greenlit by Amazon Studios, which will all be available on Amazon Prime and LOVEFILM UK. User feedback will determine which pilots are developed into fill series.
