With the proliferation of dramatic vampire shows ("The Gates", "True Blood", "The Vampire Diaries") currently on TV, it looks like at least one network thinks the subject is a little played out and needs something new. Something fresh. Well, maybe not so fresh. Something that's risen from the dead.
NBC is looking at producing a new cop procedural show tentatively called "Zombies vs Vampires". The show centers around a world where zombies exist and are policed by a special police squad. And one of the cops is secretly a vampire, a fact he hides from his human partner.
Vampire shows haven't been the same since "Buffy" and "Angel" went off the air, but this one shows a lot of potential. Here's hoping that it doesn't .... suck.
Yes. I did go for the obligatory 'vampire' pun.
