Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesThe best-selling parody of Jane Austen’s classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has been given the greenlight by Deadline Productions to make a 6-part television series.

Although talks have circulated around a feature film, it looks as if the mini-series may win the race to adapt Seth Grahame-Smith’s eccentric, fan boy-pleasing novel.

Along with announcing the production news, the book’s Twitter also released possible concept art for the series (seen after the break).

No word yet as to which network is expected to pick up the series; however, it will most likely be a British one, considering the production company is UK-based. As if Sci-Fi wouldn’t love to air a ninja-induced, zombie-killing love story!
