TVLine Items: Zombies Invade The CW, and Other TV News to Know

Television’s zombie invasion continues, and they’re gettin’ all sexylike over on the CW…

Deadline reports that the young adult network just purchased a spec script titled Awakening, which “centers on two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising.” Thus far, the CW has yet to order a pilot for the potential series, but here’s hoping — sounds like The Walking Dead meets The Vampire Diaries…all good things!

Here are a few other TV tidbits that might tickle your fancy:

The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg will host Saturday Night Live this weekend, and per the New York Post, real-life Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is being wooed to drop by for a quick cameo.

• Callum Blue is set to reprise his role as Smallville‘s evil Zod, TV Guide reports. Blue will appear in one of the series’ final five episodes.

• Charlie Sheen’s latest round of “health” woes won’t impact production on CBS’ Two and a Half Men, says Deadline. The series happened to be on hiatus this week, and Sheen is scheduled to return to work when production resumes on Tuesday.

Glee gal Lea Michele will sing “America the Beautiful” during the Super Bowl’s pregame festivities, E! Online confirms. Following the sporting event, Fox will air Glee’s much-anticipated Super Bowl Thriller.
