Amazon Scoops Up the 'Zombieland' TV Show

The show was originally destined for CBS, but it seems that Amazon has picked up the exclusive.

The folks at Amazon have picked up the 'Zombieland' series that was in development for CBS as an exclusive for Amazon Prime streaming. This is a potentially big pickup for Amazon and it marks a new focus on streaming content for the company.

'Zombieland' was a surprisingly successful flick in 2009 but still not the first thing you'd think of when pondering what movies might end up as television shows. Of course, every serious show needs a not so serious counterpart and a 'Zombieland' series would definitely offset 'The Walking Dead.'

The characters will remain the same as the ones in the movie, but the cast will be changing. Based on the information currently out there, it seems like much of the story will focus on the relationship between Columbus and Wichita.
