Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Be Mini-Series

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!

2008 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Screen Actors Guild AwardsThanks to the cancelation of the Golden Globes ceremony, the hottest ticket in town was tonight’s .  Without a picket line to cross, celebrities from TV and Film were allowed to celebrate - and commiserate - together for the first time in a long while.

For star-deprived fans, the SAG red carpet was also a treat for sore eyes.  What were our favorite actresses wearing?  What were the latest trends?  Which dresses were going to be copied by Allen Schwartz tomorrow?

Unfortunately, the evening was not all about partying.  The recent deaths of and Heath Ledger cast a somber tone on what would normally be a festive occasion.  Thankfully, tonight was not about dissecting their lives, but merely about honoring them.

Meanwhile, the neglected winners of this month’s Globes were also hoping to get a share of the honors.  If they were able to pull off another victory tonight, maybe they would have a chance to give the speech they already had written.

Well, without further ado, here’s the play-by-play of tonight’s events coming to you from the fashionably late West Coast!
