One Zombie TV Show to Rule the Air, For Now


CW nixes Awakening

It looks like The Walking Dead will be your only source for televised zombie fare.

The CW looked at the variety of pilots it had on the slab for the 2011-2012 season. And while it accepted Kevin Williamson’s new show Secret Circle (go figure), the network passed on Awakening.

The show was going to star Lucy Griffiths, Titus Welliver and Brian Hallisay and told of two sisters who were at odds with one another during a zombie apocalypse. William Laurin and Glenn Davis created the proposed show.

So, there you have it, the CW loves its vampires, witches and Winchester brothers. But not zombies.
