Zoo made its Comic-Con debut during the CBS TV Block, and almost instantly, the show’s co-creator, Jeff Pinkner, acknowledged the recent uproar from PETA about the use of live animals.
“PETA has been concerned about the treatment of animals; we’re more concerned about the treatment of [Zoo star] Billy[Burke],” Pinkner joked, after Burke talked about a particularly rough filming day on the show’s panel.
