Silly Network TV, Zombies are for cable.
Thanks to http://warmingglow.uproxx.com/ and Deadline we now have word on a new possible pilot for NBC. And get this! It’s combining Zombies and Vampires.
This has hit written all over it right?
Zombies vs. Vampires is described as a “fun buddy cop procedural.” It is set in a world where zombies are a part of society, controllable with medication. The show’s two leads (one secretly a vampire) are cops assigned to a squad specifically formed to deal with “zombie crime”
Buddy Cop Procedural (which we already have a glut of,) vampires (that’s not everywhere,) and zombies (because that isn’t already on AMC and every other horror film out right now.)
Is this their hopeful replacement for Law and Order Criminal Intent which is on the downward spiral? They screwed up Fear Itself and let it wither on the vine. Ugh. If this gets a greenlight and something funny and different like “Rex is not your lawyer” doesn’t then letters need to be written.
