Today, Amazon officially confirmed that the Zombieland pilot is already in production for Prime Instant, which is the seventh comedy pilot added to Amazon’s pilot line-up. According to the press release, the pilot will be available for FREE to Amazon customers and LOVEFiLM UK. However, the full-season production, to be aired on Instant, will be determined by the help of customer reviews and feedback on Amazon.
“Zombieland is a fan favorite and we can’t wait to see where this story line goes in a serialized format,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “We’ve been announcing a lot of exciting exclusive content for Prime Instant Video, like Downton Abbey, Under the Dome, and Justified, and we think adding original shows to that lineup is going to make Prime even more enticing for customers.”
So this clearly means if the Zombieland pilot isn’t a hit and reviews are negative, there’s a good chance the series won’t be developed by Amazon Studios. A date hasn’t been announced yet for the release of the pilot, but will be sure to keep you in the loop here on.
