Haven’t had your fill of zombies yet? There’s more coming …
AMC has announced that it will order a new show called The Walking Dead, adapted from the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, about the dwindling number of human survivors in a world overrun by zombies. The series will run six episodes and debut in October.
It will be written and directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), and its executive producers include Gale Ann Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, The Incredible Hulk).
Shooting for The Walking Dead is scheduled to begin in June in Atlanta, where the comics also take place, and which has been home to other zombie movies (Zombieland and The Crazies) recently.
