It is no surprise that other TV stations are looking to capatilize on the success of The Walking Dead and the first to give it a try is the CW, with Awakening. The show is based around "...two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising...  It centers on the older sister, Jenna (Griffiths), an attorney in the New York City's public defender's office who, like her sister, is a zombie."

It has recently been revealed that Lucy Griffiths (pictured above) has been cast as the older sister in the show, with the show pilot shooting this month. For those confused about how the show can feature zombies as main characters, it has been reported that the show will have zombies leading regular lives along with the living (and of course something will go horribly wrong...).
