While we'd known from various castings, announcements and set photos, it seems Amazon's upcoming 'Zombieland' TV series has finally been given an official pilot order. Amazon studios made the official announcement of the TV series picking up where Ruben Fleischer's 2009 film left off, adding 'Zombieland' to 12 other pilots to be viewed and potentially picked up for production by Amazon's Prime Instant Video, but what does the official annoucement reveal about 'Zombieland'?
It's been a good day for reviving franchise properties, what with the ongoing success of the 'Veronica Mars' movie Kickstarter campaign, but it's always a good day for 'Zombieland'!

We're still not sure what to make of Amazon's forthcoming 'Zombieland' TV pilot, which has the delicate task of replacing it's all-star 2009 lineup of Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin with a more budget-friendly group, but things are getting interesting now that the big man himself has been cast. 'Invasion Iowa' star Kirk Ward has been tasked with filling Woody Harrelson's snakeskin boots as iconic Twinkie-seeking zombie-slayer Tallahassee, but will he live up to the challenge?
From the moment we heard that a potential 'Zombieland' TV series had come back to life in development as an Amazon original, we knew that the series would most likely replace the 2009 film's A-list cast of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. Late last week we saw some major forward motion as upcoming stars Tyler Ross and Izabela Vodovic landed the roles of Columbus and Little Rock, and now we've learned that 'Switched at Birth' star Maiara Walsh has won the leading lady role of the lovely Wichita.

Only a few short weeks ago we were astonished to learn that the 'Zombieland' TV series had gotten off the ground after all, sending out a descriptive casting sheet to recast its now-unavailable leading stars for TV, as well as several new characters. Then came the news that the TV adaptation of the 2009 Ruben Fleischer horror-comedy would land on Amazon rather than CBS, and now we're hearing that the pilot has replaced Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin's Columbus and Little Rock, Casting Tyler Ross and Izabela Vodovic!

Amazon has recently gone about recruiting some big names for its six upcoming comedy pilots, including the larger-than-life John Goodman and former 'Frasier' star Bebe Neuwirth, but its latest casting might be the most 'Arresting' development yet. Fresh off Netflix's upcoming 'Arrested Development' reunion, fellow streaming service-turned original content provider Amazon has recruited Jeffrey Tambor for a starring role in upcoming series 'The Onion Presents: The News,' but will it interfere with other projects?
Once it became apparent that The CW's 'Arrow' would prove a big success for the network, DC comics fans were excited to hear that The CW might look to capitalize on the good will by developing a unique Wonder Woman TV series titled 'Amazon,' focusing on the younger days of titular hero Princess Diana. The CW brass seemed optimistic that the project would move forward, but now the drama has been left off the network's list of pilot pick-ups for the season. Is 'Amazon' dead in the water?
A few days ago we heard the surprising, yet phenomenal report that CBS had decided to move forward with its 'Zombieland' TV series after all, after nearly two years spent in development. The series would pic up where Ruben Fleischer's 2009 film left off, albeit with new actors replacing the now-household names and a few new characters thrown into the mix. Now it seems that the initial reports may have been off, and the 'Zombieland' TV series might be headed to Amazon.com's streaming service instead. Get the latest on a 'Zombieland' TV series inside!
