Watch the entire pilot of the zombie TV show CBS rejected in 2007

Remember Babylon Fields, the apocalyptic zombie drama starring Ray Stevenson, Amber Tamblyn and Kathy Baker that ran on CBS a few years back? No? Well, that's because the network passed on the series, and so instead of beating The Walking Dead to TV by three years, all that exists is this unaired pilot.

Babylon Fields had an extremely different take on the zombie concept, in that when the dead came back, they were just like you and me, except ... dead. Whether they were eventually supposed to get around to munching on the living, we'll never know, but meanwhile, this pilot makes for an interesting might-have-been.
