Because When Everything Else is "Fizzling" On The SyFy Channel, Why Not Just Rip-Off "The Walking Dead?"
The long since, overly explored and beaten to death "Zombie Genre" has everything the SyFy Channel has historically loved in the past:
1. Making a television series out of someone else's idea.
2. It's financially safe to not take any risks with fresh, new ideas.
3. No imagination is required to beat the "Zombie Genre" to death with long since traversed territory by everyone else who has ever made a "Zombie" movie / tv series.
4. The SyFy Channel will explore story ideas already long since explored (for decades) by everyone else in the "Zombie Genre".....particularly George A. Romero:
a. Protagonist (s) suddenly wake up / encounter a changed dangerous world where former people are now inexplicably zombies.
b. No medical explanation given except for maybe a faint reference to a comet passing overhead infecting the Earth's atmosphere with unusual radiation.
c. Zombies invading shopping malls, farmhouses, parking garages, condemned buildings, nurseries, subdivisions, with the protagonist (s) holed up in there.
5. Let's not forget the...."Stock Character"....Zombies the SyFy Channel will bring us:
a. The little girl in the nightgown carrying a teddy bear with her throat ripped out.
b. Zombie....farm hands, construction workers, cops, fat people, hicks, etc.
I won't be watching because I've already seen all of this stuff in "The Walking Dead" and the "George Romero" movies.

Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
