Amazon Passes on Zombieland TV Series
Co-Creator blames fan reaction.

Quote
Zombieland will not be moving forward as an ongoing TV series. The adaptation of the hit movie was one of several pilots Amazon produced and then released simultaneously last month to viewers - with the decision on which to continue with to be made later, based on viewer reaction, among other factors.

While the pilot didn't get great reviews, there was a lot of criticism from the get go from fans before production had even begun. Much of that criticism came from Reese and Wernick's decision to use the same characters they had created that we met in the film, memorably played by Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.

Reese and Wernick had always wanted Zombieland to be a TV series, which was how they first conceived of the project a decade ago, before being asked to rewrite it as a film.

Reese left a series of tweets about Amazon not ordering the pilot to series, and made it clear he felt it was the fan reaction that led to the project being halted, saying it completely surprised him.
