I love zombies and that's why I am so excited for AMC's next offering, The Walking Dead. Based on the comic book series, the show will premiere Halloween night with a 90 minute episode. The series, which will run for 6 episodes, began shooting back in May in Atlanta, Georgia. It was shot on 16mm film, so you know it will have a cool, realistic feel.
AMC has been churning out quality programming, including Mad Men and Breaking Bad, for awhile so I know this will good. Even though it is cable television, don't worry about the lack of gore. Robert Kirkman, who created The Walking Dead comic says "the stuff that AMC is going to put on air is crazy!" You know we love crazy around here.
The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows a small group of survivors traveling across the country in search of a new home away from the hordes of zombies. The group is led by Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln. The cast also includes Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Sarah Wayne Callies and Jeffrey DeMunn. Frank Darabont serves as executive producer, and co-wrote the first three episodes. I always look forward to AMC's Fearfest and Monsterfest during Halloween, this is a great addition.
