For those cats who might be interested in Amazon Studios Zombieland: The Series, we have the official trailer for you right now. There also seems to be a little confusion as to when the pilot episode will be available. According to the trailer, it’s available NOW, but I’ve tried and can’t get it to work yet. Other reports are saying it won’t be available until Friday, so as soon as I get definitive news as to when it’s available to watch, I’ll let you guys and ghouls know.
Zombieland: The Series pilot episode will be available to watch FREE through Amazon Prime for 30 days. After that you must be a subscriber to Amazon Prime to watch. The fate of the series depends on you, the viewer as to whether it will make it to a full series run. Eight potential series are vying for a spot to make it a full season and the viewers will vote as to which one they like best. If you watch the pilot and are given an opportunity to vote, please vote on Zombieland, that’s the only way we’ll get to see more episodes of the show.
Zombieland: The Series 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.”
