EXCLUSIVE: This a title that would certainly score big with the Comic-Con crowd. NBC has closed a deal for Zombies vs. Vampires, a spec script by Jake in Progress creator/executive producer Austin Winsberg. I hear NBC bought preemptively the project, produced by Warner Bros. TV and McG’s studio-based Wonderland production banner. Zombies vs. Vampires is described as a “fun buddy cop procedural.” It is set in a world where zombies are a part of society, controllable with medication. The show’s two leads (one secretly a vampire) are cops assigned to a squad specifically formed to deal with “zombie crime”. Winsberg, McG and Peter Johnson are executive producing.
On the feature side, Winsberg, repped by UTA and Underground, recently sold a pitch to Warner Bros. for an animated feature about a peacock, which he is co-writing with Heath Corson. Wonderland is with WME.
