Zombies and Vampires Team Up for, in Retrospect, Inevitable TV Show


It's all right to punch yourself in the arm for not thinking of this one first. NBC has just purchased a spec script for the incredibly high-concept Zombies vs. Vampires, about a cop vampire dealing with "zombie crime" in a world where zombie-ness can be controlled through medication. With this series, NBC is really hedging its bets, ensuring it will neither miss out on the vampire craze nor be left looking hopelessly out-of-date when the vampire craze ends and the zombie craze begins in earnest. Illustrating this idea's vitality, we already have questions: Can vampires eat zombies? Or is their blood too rotten? And how long until this guy sues? [Deadline]
