Zombieland TV Series Not Dead, Casting Sheets Leaked

If you were bummed about the news that a Zombieland 2 will probably not happen, at least you still have the television series to look forward to.

Casting sheets have leaked for the proposed CBS series, revealing some of the characters you'll find in the show.

If you recall, Zombieland initially began as a concept for TV until it was reworked into a feature film. Then, in late 2011, word broke that the title was going to make a transition to the small screen.

io9 landed the casting call (and some script pages) and noticed that some of the characters from the film will make a return - Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, Little Rock - but there will be some difference between their big and small screen incarnations. For example:

Tallahassee is still kind of a snarky weirdo, but he seems to have a much less spiky relationship with Columbus. He and Columbus have a pretty amusing thing where they riff on the fact that Steven Seagal movies always have three-word titles like "Marked for Justice" or "May Cause Diarrhea." But Tallahassee also dispenses homespun wisdom about how to feel happy with your life. He also tells a weird story about being in a trailer park with a perpetually nude Matthew McConaughey. He also has a somewhat heartwarming scene where he tells Columbus that he's been wandering aimlessly for a long time, but maybe he's been put here for a reason to help Columbus and the others.

As for the newcomers, expect...

Fred and Ainsley are two office workers at the start of the zombie apocalypse, obliviously complaining about problems with their iPhones and getting the wrong order at Starbucks, which they admit are "first world problems" with a hashtag while people are being disembowled just outside the window they're not facing. Tallahassee shows up to bring them their lunch orders, wearing a green polo shirt.
