Mike Norton, co-creator of “Revival,” reflected on the genesis of the series in a previous interview, stating, “”Revival” came about just because Tim and I work together. The idea came to fruition through many lunch breaks. We’d talk about the kind of book we wanted to do. He wanted to do a crime story, I wanted to do something weird and character-based like the TV show, Lost. The idea of a town where zombies live but don’t eat brains came out of that. The more we talked about it, the more we both thought this project could have steam.” src thecompmagazine
