Zombieland TV Trailer Online
And you can watch the pilot...

18 April 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Amazon/Lovefilm

Back in January, word broke that US online store giant Amazon was looking to use original content to compete with Netflix’s offerings. The company’s first pickup was the long-gestating Zombieland TV show, which continues the adventures of Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita and Little Rock. Well, things were much further along than first thought, and now, not only is the trailer online, but the pilot is soon going to be free to watch on Amazon and in the UK via LoveFilm. Take a gander at the trailer below.

Though it clearly has to do the heavy lifting of introducing the world of the 2009 comedy hit to new viewers, and doesn’t boast the movie’s cast, the pilot – directed by Eli Craig and overseen by Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese – clearly aims to carry the anarchic spirit of the film.

With Kirk Ward as Tallahassee, Tyler Ross as Columbus, Maiara Walsh as Wichita and Izabela Vidovic as Little Rock, the trailer boasts plenty of zombie-slaying action and even the rules for survival.

Head to LoveFilm to take a look  if you’re in the UK or Amazon in the US when it's online (at the time of writing, it was still "coming soon.") The company is taking votes as to which pilot goes to series, so if you want to see more, make your voice heard.

RE: In a word...crap.
do have the problem is that if you are going to use the setting from a film then don't use the same characters unless you can get the original actors back.ell exactly. I mean, look at Buffy. More

In a word...crap.
For starters I have no problem with the idea of Zombieland being made into a series. I loved the film and given that mankind is on it's knees there is plenty of scope. Where I do have the problem is that if you are going to use the setting from a film then don't use the same characters unless you can get the original actors back. Surely in the whole of America they are not the only 4 people left alive?? Let the film be their story and use the premise to introduce a new bunch of characters and jo More

Agreed.
The cast made the first one enjoyable, this would certainly not prompt me to sign up to Lovefilm. Lovefilm definitely has better movies but Netflix is developing much more interesting content. More
