“Walking Dead” watch out! Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive drop that David Von Ancken will helm the pilot episode of the CW’s “Awakening”, a new zombie series shooting this March in Toronto.
Bill Laurin and Glenn Davis’ hourlong spec centers on two combative sisters who come of age amid the beginning of a zombie uprising. Word has it that the series follows thousands of zombies living “normal lives” among the living (also known as the “pre-dead”). The two worlds collide and cause war between the living and the dead.
Ancken has directed episodes of “Californication,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Heroes,” “The Shield,” “OZ,” and “Memphis Beat”, along with the TV movie “Hell on Wheels”. Quite impressive, no?
