Zombies on CBS?
I’ve heard of stranger things, yes, but not many.
Apparently one of the boys at Icons of Fright stumbled upon the final day of shooting for a TV movie called Babylon Fields, going down in the quiet borough known as Long Island. The movie is being helmed by "Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" regular Michael Cuesta and, according to what their scooper could suss out from a helpful production assistant, will serve as a pilot for a potential series.
As you can see from the pic on the right (a lot more are over at Icons of Fright), the zombies here are old-school, no ghastly KNB-esque work was to be found, at least not from the short time the reporter was on-set. The show itself is about the dead returning to life (duh) in order to, as IMDB puts is, "restore old wounds". I have no idea what that means.
Babylon Fields is described as a comedic drama, which fits with what the Icons scooper was told, which is that they’re going forward with tongue in cheek for the most part. Sounds like it could be fun, just still can’t get over that we’ll be seeing the undead on CBS soon ... Click here for a lot more pics from Babylon Fields!
