Given the success of “The Walking Dead”, it was only a matter of time before other networks jumped on the flesh-eating bandwagon. Enter The CW and its new show “Awakening”.
According to Deadline the network just made a late spec script purchase with “Awakening”, a zombie drama described as “The Walking Dead” for young females, from Canadian writer-producers William Laurin and Glenn Davis (The Listener). Going after a spec so late in the game usually means that the network has a potential pilot order in mind, but for now The CW is not going that far with “Awakening”, which centers on two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising.
Before you all start going on about the whole “young female” thing, remember “Supernatural” was kind of pitched that way, too, and it delivers some of TV’s best horror each week. Stay tuned for more.
