CBS is set to team with “Continuum” creator Simon Barry for a TV series adaptation of Stefan Petrucha’s zombie-themed best-selling novel “Dead Mann Walking”.
The story is set in the near future, when a police detective executed for murdering his wife is given a miracle drug and is brought back to life as one of the pulse-challenged population, a group now treated as second-class citizens.
The man is now working as a private investigator while looking for his wife’s real killer. His first case is a missing persons case during which he learns that several other fellow zombies have been cut to pieces. Barry will pen the script and executive produce alongside Stephen Hegyes.
