ABC & Plan B Look to the Living Dead with ‘The Returned’

Chris Savage

The folks over at ABC haven’t had a very good year ratings wise, they just can’t seem to get it right, or when they do they decide to shelve it. But you know what? When all else fails there is only one thing you can count on for some possible ratings, the zombie!

According to Variety, ABC and Plan B are developing “a serialized drama that centers on a Midwestern town where the dead return to change the lives of those they left behind.”

Aaron Zelman has been tapped to pen the series and serve as an executive producer, also JoAnn Alfano and Jon Liebman will executive produce for Brillstein while Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will executive produce for Plan B.

So what do you guys say? Is another zombie series a goof idea or will ABC screw this up?
