Sorry I've been away from the Zone for a while, but there really has been so very little Zombie News to report of late. And while I do still intend to talk about upcoming Zombie Films, this week I thought I'd start with some Zombie Pastries. The photo above is actually a cake (via) by Barbara Jo found on DoItMyself.org. Full instructions can be found here. Regular readers know that Uncle P's sister has a side business making custom cakes for all kinds of occasions. Sis came North last year for a change, but I'm still hoping that when I go south this spring, she'll have a special zombie cake just for me. And I''ll be sure to post pictures of it here when she does.
In Zombie TV, AMC continues to post interviews with the cast and crew of their hit series "The Walking Dead." An interview with cast member IronE Singleton can be found here, while an interview with Season 1 crew can be found here. Meanwhile, on the heels of AMC's surprise hit, several other networks are developing their own zombie series. First (via) comes news of the CW series "Awakening" about "two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the zombie uprising." Meanwhile, NBC is developing the totally ridiculous-sounding "Zombies Vs. Vampires." Uncle P thinks this is definitely a case of genre overkill and predicts a very short run, should the show actually make it to air.
And finally, in advance of my post about upcoming Zombie Films, comes the Zombie Clip of the Week, a (you should excuse the expression) short about the making of Night of the Little Dead, a film which features "The Cape" co-star Martin Klebba and whose title which will make itself apparent as you watch the clip. Enjoy:
More Melting Heads, soon.
