In what could be the first in a series of television series that skip the actual TV-based broadcast and head straight to the web, Zombieland has been announced as coming to Amazon.com exclusively. While the original concept for Zombieland was that it would be a television series (for those of you that don't know), it was turned into a movie that became - and is now - a bit of a cult classic. Now the real-deal television series is ready and raring to go and it'll be jumping right at you through your laptop - no TV necessary!
