Babylon Fields is a proposed television series that features reanimated zombies as characters. Rather than being portrayed as malevolent monsters, however, the recently deceased are shown attempting to return to their previous lives. A pilot was produced in 2007 for CBS, but the network declined to pick up the show. The CBS pilot has elements of black comedy as well as drama. Cast members include Ray Stevenson, Amber Tamblyn, David Patrick Kelly, Kathy Baker, Leila Arcieri, and Jamey Sheridan.
In October 2013, Babylon Fields was resurrected by NBC, which ordered a new pilot. The Cuesta brothers and Atkinson are back in their original roles as writers (Gerald Cuesta, Atkinson) and director (Michael Cuesta). The three will executive produce for 20th Century Fox TV. As part of the pilot order, Michael Cuesta has inked a two-year overall deal with the studio.
