It ain’t easy taking a popular cult film and adapting it into a successful TV series (emphasis on successful), but the advent of alternative digital platforms such as Netflix and Hulu are opening up more possibilities.  Enter Amazon and it’s Zombieland series pilot.  The series comes from Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and stars Tyler Ross (Milkshake) as Columbus, Maiara Walsh (Switched at Birth) as Wichita, Izabela Vidovic (Help for the Holidays) as Little Rock, and Kirk Ward (Fully Loaded) as Tallahassee.  Reese and Wernick are hoping for a 13-episode first season, but if this pilot is any indication, then they’ll be struggling to abide by Rule #33: Keep Hope Alive.  Hit the jump for my review.

After news that Amazon Studios and Sony TV would be producing the pilot for the Zombieland series, some casting and plot information became available.  Now, it looks like two of the four leads have been filled.  Tyler Ross (Milkshake) will play Columbus (portrayed in the 2009 film by Jesse Eisenberg) while up-and-comer Izabela Vidovic (Help for the Holidays) will star as Little Rock (played by Abigail Breslin in the feature).  Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the feature script as well as that of the pilot, which continues the post-apocalyptic adventures of the foursome that also includes Tallahassee and Wichita.

The 1990s saw a significant shift in pop culture from the hair bands of the late 1980s to grunge and, more noticeably, the emergence of rap and hip-hop culture.  Personalities like Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., and Spike Lee made an enormous impact on the country, and directors David Andalman and Mariko Munro chronicle the idolization of hip-hop culture by white kids in their new film Milkshake.  While the time period and semi-racist/ridiculous thought process of the film’s main character make for a unique and fairly entertaining experience, Milkshake fails to expand the premise into anything substantial.
