Another popular book series is getting the TV adaptation treatment. According to Deadline, author Mark Tufo’s series Zombie Fallout is coming to television. The project is set to be executive produced by Brad Thomas and Weston Scott are teaming up with Tufo himself as well as Buffalo 8’s Steven Adams and Theo Dumont to make it happen.
“Zombie Fallout is a continuing labor of love, sweat, and tears,” said Tufo. “Originally one book, this thing has become an entire universe. It’s gone farther than I ever imagined; it’s become a reality.”
As f this writing, there are 12 entries in the book series, but it extends to audiobooks and graphic novels as well. Plus, if you look at the reviews on Amazon on these things, it’s clear there’s a decent-sized audience reading, which can hopefully translate to viewers on-screen.
Below is the official synopsis for Book 1 of the series.
“It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.
“This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.
“Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy’s powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.”
