‘Zombies and Cheerleaders’ Undead at Disney Channel; Resurrected as ‘Zoms and Poms’


We first broke the news that Disney Channel was working on a new musical series titled ‘Zombies and Cheerleaders‘ back in June of 2011, nearly four and a half years ago. While the series was expected to debut in 2012, the series was virtually dead air.

Today, due to an extreme number of domain registrations by The Walt Disney Company, it would appear the project is all but dead — undead, if you will — and may have been re-titled to ‘Zoms and Poms’ or ‘Zoms vs Poms,’ as the registrations suggest the exact title has not yet been finalized.

‘Zombies and Cheerleaders’ Stitch Kingdom Report Confirmed by Disney Channel

Disney Channel today confirmed a report made by Stitch Kingdom weeks ago stating that they were actively developing and casting a series titled ‘Zombies and Cheerleaders.’ We initially reported on the project back in June, when we noticed domain name registrations alluding to the project, but it wasn’t until September that we were able to confirm the project and provide extensive details on the series.

According to Disney Channel, the music-driven pilot will begin production in December (with as an of yet unannounced cast), to be considered for a series in 2012.

‘Zombies and Cheerleaders’ to be Disney Channel Sitcom Pilot

A few months ago, we reported on some interesting domain name registrations by Disney focusing on the unlikely combination of zombies and cheerleaders — relatively unusual for a family entertainment conglomerate, anyway. Within the past couple of weeks, we began receiving visits through search engines from various people searching for the term, sometimes combining it with Disney and even Disney Channel.

Today we have learned just what the ‘Zombies and Cheerleaders’ project is, thanks to a casting notice placed by Stiner/Block Casting, who routinely cast for Disney Channel projects. According to the casting call, we now know the project to be a pilot for a new Disney Channel comedy.

One can only begin to imagine what Disney has up its sleeve with its latest round of domain name registrations which include ZOMBIESANDCHEERLEADERS.COM and CHEERLEADERSANDZOMBIES.COM. Being the entertainment giant that it is, the concept could apply to anything from books to films to television programs to films and beyond.
