When I first saw this announcement, I actually thought it was a joke, but no… Awakening is real show that is shooting it’s pilot for the WB. What is the premise of the Awakening you might ask?

The show is a coming of age tale of two sisters during the dawn of the zombie uprising. One of the sisters, is an attorney in the New York City’s public defender’s office. The show focuses on the conflict between the two sisters. And, oh, by the way… they are both zombies.

Part of today’s big announcement was that British Actress Lucy Griffiths has been cast in the lead role as the undead, upwardly mobile attorney.

They should have just saved themselves a whole bunch of marketing cash and called it ‘The Zombie Diaries’ or Ally mcZombie…
