In 2009, Grahame-Smith created the "mash-up" craze with his novel "pride and prejudice and zombies," which debuted at #3 on the new york times bestseller list. It's since sold over two million copies and been translated into more than twenty languages. A feature film adaptation is set for 2015.
In 2010, Grahame-Smith co-created and produced MTV's first live action comedy, "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," which ran for two seasons.
