Gosh, what is it with vampires, werewolves and zombies? They are the most popular creatures in television and movies. Why?
I should talk. I'm a fan of "True Blood." Love that show.
So we've got that show, and ABC has something called "The Gates" coming up soon. Then there's the "Twilight" phenomenon. That one, I don't understand.
Next week, a new television show called "The Walking Dead" starts filming in Atlanta. It's the pilot for AMC, which ordered it plus five episodes.
So, if you're interested in playing a zombie, first, you must e-mail that you want to be a zombie to firstname.lastname@example.org If they want you, you have to attend Zombie School, so you can be taught how to walk and act like a zombie. If you pass Zombie School, then you'll be one of the zombie extras from June through September.
The filming schedule is June 11-13 and July 2-4 during the day in Atlanta.
"The Walking Dead" is based on a comic book about a police officer in Kentucky, whose town is overrun with zombies. He gets shot and when he recovers, he discovers that survivors are told to go to Atlanta. He goes to Atlanta to find his family and friends.
If you think you can do it, e-mail them. And break a leg.
