The Walking Dead to Meet The Vampire Diaries on The CW

by at . Comments

The CW hopes to rock its ratings out of a slumber with a new script purchase.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the network has purchased the rights to Awakening, a new drama from Canadian writer/producers William Laurin and Glenn Davis.

The site describes the drama, which may premiere this fall, as the story of "two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising."

So... sort of The Walking Dead meets The Vampire Diaries? We'd totally watch that! How about you?

Oops forgot to add that on paper this actually sounds intriguing, but THIS IS the CW we're talking about. They pander melodrama to teenagers it's a shame because if a network like HBO, Showtime, or even Starz would have purchased the script, gotten a good production team and talent, who knows how amazing this could have been. Instead i expect this to be the typical cliche CW 'hit' that will last several season, or a failure that will last at most two seasons.

@ Richard Are you retarded or just that ignorant first off originality NO LONGER! exist, virtually everything is "copied/stolen" etc. Second the walking dead is no exception as it is an adaptation of a comic book series, and if may add a poor one at that. Third it's of a genre that's been done to death (no pun intended) mainly in the film industry of course. Finally the walking dead isn't even the first 'zombie apocalypse' type program to be featured on TV, i'm pretty sure that would be the UK mini-series dead set. Not to mention that there have been as far as i am aware of quite a few considered by networks, but never reached the pick up/production stage e.g; babylon fields.
