TV: CW Orders ‘The Walking Dead’ for Young Females

Described as “The Walking Dead” for young females, the CW just made a late spec script purchase with “Awakening,” a zombie drama from Canadian writer-producers William Laurin and Glenn Davis (The Listener).

Going after a spec so late in the game usually means that the network has a potential pilot order in mind, but for now, the CW is not going that far with “Awakening,” which centers on two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising.
