/// Amazon Kills Zombies, Keeps John Goodman as It Plans First Season of Web Series
Just like a regular TV network, Amazon ordered up a bunch of pilot shows this year , and will end up making a series out of some of them. Unlike a TV network, Amazon has asked the Internet to watch and rate its test shows , and has said the input will help the company make its decisions. And now we’re getting to see some of those decisions play out. We only have definitive word on one of the 14 pilots Amazon has ordered. That’s because Rhett Reese, the writer/producer behind “ Zombieland, ” has announced, via Twitter, that it’s not getting picked up: Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon.Sad for everyone involved. — Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) May 17, 2013 Reese wasn’t done, though. He also complained about people who didn’t like the show — presumably fans of the original movie his series was riffing on: I’ll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans.You guys successfully hated it out of existence.
