‘Zombieland’ TV Show Canceled: Producer Blames Fans
Amazon tried to jump on the zombie train by airing a pilot based off of the 2009 movie “Zombieland” … and it was dead on arrival. Attempting to follow in Netlix’s successful original programming footsteps, the Amazon Prime instant video service allowed any user to watch the “Zombieland” pilot for free. Unfortunately it failed to generate a fan base. But it did succeed in getting people to rally in hatred for it.
Rhett Reese, producer and co-writer for the Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson lead movie and the 2013 Amazon pilot, took to Twitter to share the bad (yet pretty hilarious) news.
“Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon. Sad for everyone involved,” Reese tweeted on Thursday. “I’ll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans. You guys successfully hated it out of existence. Anyway, we did our best, and we’re proud of our team.”
I guess The Walking Dead will be the only game zombie series in town for a while.
