STATUS: previously in development (2012-2013 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from Disney Channel's press release, October 2011) Disney Channel has ordered the music-driven pilot "Zombies and Cheerleaders." Production on the pilot begins in December in consideration for a Disney Channel series to premiere in 2012. The story follows Zed Necrodopolis, a typical high school student with one small caveat; he happens to be a zombie. Despite a high-tech wristwatch designed to curb any appetite he may have for his classmates, he and his zombie friends remain unpopular with the school's most influential group, the pom-pom wielding cheerleaders. Never one to back down from a challenge, Zed sets out to improve zombie student body relations and win the attention of Addison, the cheerleading squad's newest member.
