Zombies Invade Television

Zombies... you just can't get rid of them.

The Walking Dead opened the door for the undead on network televison and now they're shambling over to ABC to take part in a show called "The Returned."

These aren't your flesh-chewing walkers, however. In "The Returned," the dead return to change the lives of those they left behind in a small Midwestern town. (So not quite as fun)

These corpses appear to be a bit more benevolent than those in "Walking Dead," but we'll have to wait and see just how they go about changing their loved ones' lives. Aaron Zelman, who worked on AMC's "The Killing," will serve as executive producer on the series, as well as write for it. Plan B, the production company formed by Brad Pitt (who is tangling with zombies of his own in WORLD WAR Z), will produce.

Perhaps ABC's hunger for "The Returned" plays a part in their quick decision to shelve the paranormal drama "Weird Desk" a mere week after giving it the go-ahead. If that's the case, this show is one to keep an eye on.

Until then, we shall patiently wait.

Haven't heard of this one, suffering through the 25 days of Christmas on ABC, I'm surprised I didn't see the commercials for it. Oh wait, they were too busy trying to convince me to watch Pretty Little Liars and some other BS! What has this world come to?!!?! Where are the zombies already, it's time to rid of some of these idiots! ;)

I like the sounds of this actually in all honesty and think that the plot is at least different and that it should be quite good, I'll make sure to check it out.
