Animal Planet to Develop…A Zombie TV Series?!?

October 13th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Ok…this one is just plain weird, but it’s so weird that it is totally worth writing about.

Animal Planet has been doing it’s best to branch out into different genres. So apparently, to get some more viewers, they’re tapping into the oh so beloved zombie genre according to Variety.

The show will be based upon the graphic novel, “The Other Dead”. Which is a story set in Louisiana during the time of Hurricane Katrina. The story revolves around a world of undead animals and unrelenting storms.

…yep, it’s still weird. The show is eyeing a 2016 release.
