Legendary Television and Digital Media have optioned "World War Z" author Max Brooks' horror comic series "The Extinction Parade" for development as a TV series.
The story is set after a zombie plague has made humans an endangered species. Fearing the end of their food supply, a group of vastly outnumbered vampires enter into a war with the zombies, with humans caught in the crossfire.
Brooks will assist in development of the project and pen the pilot episode. Avatar Press publisher William Christensen says: "It will make the perfect television series to appeal to fans who have until now settled for thinly veiled soap operas parading as horror."
