The buddy comedy has long been a staple of broadcast TV entertainment. Over the years there have been many noteworthy pairing such as “The Odd Couple”, “Friends”, and “Seinfeld”. Never has there been a coupling such as this though … get ready to get your digital recorders set for “Zombies vs. Vampires”.
According to Deadline Hollywood NBC has closed a deal for “Zombies vs. Vampires”, a spec script by “Jake in Progress” creator/executive producer Austin Winsberg.
The upcoming show is described as a “fun buddy cop procedural” set in a world where zombies are a part of society, controllable with medication. The show’s two leads (one secretly a vampire) are cops assigned to a squad specifically formed to deal with “zombie crime“. Winsberg, McG and Peter Johnson are executive producing.
