Today, we have word that Zombieland is being developed as an original series for the Internet giant Amazon. If the show lands a series commitment, it will air on the website's instant video service. Back in October 2011, the pilot was being developed at Fox.
Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the pilot, which will follow the further adventures of Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock. Those characters were portrayed by Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin in the 2009 movie, although it seems unlikely that they will return for the series. The pilot also features new characters Fred and Ainsley, office workers who have their lunch orders delivered by Tallahassee, before the zombie apocalypse.
The show is being developed as a half-hour series, although it isn't known how many episodes Amazon may produce, if it is picked up. Amazon may be trying to compete with Netflix, the streaming service that already has several original programs in production, such as House of Cards and a revival of the hit comedy series Arrested Development.
