Default AMC brings 'Walking Dead' to life

Set to air this October as part of AMC's FearFest. Filming begins in Atlanta this Wednesday.
Some big names on the production end. Hopefully this will be as well written and made as Breaking Bad and Mad Men.

Quote:
AMC Upcoming Original Series:
The Walking Dead
AMC has greenlit The Walking Dead as a six-episode series based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The Walking Dead tells the story of life following a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, Teachers, Strike Back) will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Ghost Writer) will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast includes Laurie Holden (The Shield), who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), who plays Rick's wife Lori.

About the Producers
Robert Kirkman serves as an executive producer on the project and three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) serves as writer, director and executive producer. Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk), chairman of Valhalla Motion Pictures, serves as Executive Producer. David Alpert from Circle of Confusion serves as Executive Producer. Charles “Chic” Eglee (Dexter, The Shield, Dark Angel) will also serve as Executive Producer, and Jack LoGiudice (Sons of Anarchy, Resurrection Blvd) will serve as Co-Executive Producer.
"AMC strives to make original shows that play like movies and The Walking Dead is a perfect complement to the network’s celebrated movie franchise, Fearfest, which has always been an important destination for our audience," said Charlie Collier, AMC President. "With its depth of story and the remarkable talent attached, The Walking Dead gives us an opportunity to raise the bar significantly within this popular genre, and continue our commitment to being the home of premium programming on basic cable."

Default Re: AMC brings 'Walking Dead' to life

I am a bit of a 'Zombie Apocolypse' nut. Love a good ZA story so this is something I will really be interested in seeing. If anyone out there wants to read two really good books related to this genre I recommend 'World War Z' by Max Brooks and 'Day by Day Armegedon' by J. L. Bourne...DBDA was written by an active duty naval officer in journal form and is a terrific 'survivalist' story. WWZ is done in an interview after the fact style that had more to do with the geo-political and governmental/military responses to the 'outbreak'....an oral account of the war. Both were riviting reads.

Was not a real judge. They probably just did it up for the show to look like one.

This is getting pretty predictable so far. Let me guess what is going to happen. The dude with the kid he met is going to have to shoot his wife in the end because she is a zombie. The deputy will go and kill that half body zombie before he leaves just to put it out. The deputy is going to head to Atlanta while his wife and kid are somewhere safe with his partner who has been screwing his wife the entire time. The deputy is going to go into Atlanta thinking it is going to be safe and there will be a million zombies there coming after him and it will leave you with a cliff hanger as to if he will be safe or not.

Seems almost any zombie movie ever made, they'd never heard of zombies before, and they know nothing about how to kill them at first. I think they all live in an alternate universe where they've never had zombie movies before.

I'm liking this show though, good first episode so far and great effects and make up.
