The CW developing Zombie drama

The CWThe CW is developing a new Zombie drama.


The CWIf further proof was needed that Zombies are fast becoming the new vampires – if other words the ‘hot new thing’ – then the news that The CW is developing its own Zombie drama should clinch it for everyone. It’s hardly surprising given the success of AMC’s The Walking Dead that other networks should look to cash-in with their own related projects. After all how many vampire shows are there out there now?


The CW is developing a script for The Awakening which is about two sisters who face off against each other just as the zombie apocalypse starts. William Laurin and Glenn Davis are writing the project. NBC is developing its own series Zombies vs. Vampires which gives you two ‘hot new things’ for the price of one. Only we can’t help but feel Zombies vs. Vampires could end up like Alien vs. Predator…need we say more?
