Gould creating zombie comedy for Comedy Central

dana gouldDana Gould, one of my favorite stand-up comedians, is creating a series about zombies for Comedy Central?

I am so there.

The series, which has the working title of The Last Larry, focuses on a world destroyed by zombies, and the humans leftover who are trying to get on with their lives. Gould describes the series as a traditional sitcom that just happens to take place in the aftermath of a zombie holocaust, saying it's really about how people get on with their lives after something terrible happens.

That may sound a lot like Shaun of the Dead, but Gould insists that's not the case. He is set to write, executive produce and star in the new series. Since the project is still in the early stages, there's no word on when we'll be seeing it.

Gould was recently a writer on The Simpsons, but left the series to develop other projects. He still does stand-up, and if you ever get a chance to see him, I highly recommend it.

I'd like to see a zombie show based on Image Comics's Walking Dead series.

The Zombie Apocalypse

I'm less surprised about the prevalence of zombie comedies, and more surprised about the fact that they're actually making zombie television shows now.

CBS is doing a show called Babylon Fields: http://thezombieapocalypse.blogspot.com/2007/05/zombies-shamble-onto-television-part-1.html

And these unknowns have just shot a pilot intended for cable: http://thezombieapocalypse.blogspot.com/2007/05/zombies-shamble-onto-television-part-2.html

I hope audiences are ready for zombies on television. I know I am.

Anytime you can use the term "(rom)comzom", you use it. You use it like there's no zombie-apocalypse tomorrow.

"But I'm not sure how many times we need to see comedies about zombies."

The answer is seven.

It sounds like a cross between "Shaun of the Dead" and "Fido", which are both hilarious films. But I'm not sure how many times we need to see comedies about zombies.
