The CW Gets A Zombie “Awakening”

With AMC’s “The Walking Dead” scoring acclaim and ratings, The CW is trying to cash in on the genre and has begun development on the hour-long drama series “Awakening” reports TV Guide.

The story follows two sisters who face off against one another just as a zombie uprising begins. William Laurin and Glenn Davis (“The Listener,” “Missing”) penned the script.

Warner Bros. TV is also onboard the project and the network will decide in the coming days if they want to order a pilot.
