Looks like that rumored Zombieland TV series is really happening

A while ago, we heard that instead of a movie sequel to the undead comedy hit Zombieland, we'd instead be getting a TV show. Those rumors have been swirling around for more than a year now, and it finally seems like something might actually be happening on that front. Could Zombieland: The Series be headed our way soon?

Though we'd originally heard that if the show happened it would be headed to Fox, Broadcast Now is reporting that the Zombieland series has been given a home with Amazon's Instant Video service, which has been working for a while now to make a push for original programming. If it's true, it looks like the series will return to the adventures of the film's main characters (though we're guessing a new cast would be involved) in a world overrun with hungry undead.

Amazon hasn't made any official statement on this deal, if it exists, but it certainly seems like a promising venue for the show. After all, the film's creators originally intended to bring the story to TV first, and with Amazon on board the zombie carnage could be much bloodier than Fox would ever allow (we think).

What do you think? Is this a good fit for the show, or should it be happening at all?
