Default Walking Dead TV Show on AMC

http://blog.newsarama.com/2009/08/11...-walking-dead/

for those who don't know, The Walking Dead is a brilliant zombie apocalypse comic. But instead of focusing on BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD and zombies and stuff it follows a group of survivors in a post zombie apocalypse world. yes there is a lot of violence, and gore, and sex, and situations where the 3 are mixed together, but that's not the primary focus of the series. it's about survival and how far people would go to do so in a world that is so drastically different.

I personally think this would make an excellent TV show, on HBO or something. But I like AMC enough (they did give us Mad Men and Breaking Bad) to give them the benefit of the doubt

sooo it's like any other zombie themed movie/show

sounds interesting though.

well most zombie fiction that seems to come out usually just focus on shock death.

also the big major difference is that zombie movies usually take place over like a day or a week. this is telling a continuous story. no suicide pacts, no riding off into the sunset, no cures or answers or military. just people and zombies

Awesome

Hopefully this gets picked up. Even without anyone hearing of the comic, the recent boom of interest in zombie stuff and AMC's own reputation for putting out series should get this made into a series.

Walking Dead could be part of AMC's October "fearfest" or is that not enough time?

Read to the part where they decide to move all those campers after being outside the city for months, pretty good. I'll pick it back up one of these days.

Looking forward to seeing the series.

Holy shit, honestly surprised a quality zombie show hasn't popped up yet. I wonder how faithful they will be to the comics though, they could fuck up the whole flow by changing small things.

Quote:
The producers of "The Walking Dead," AMC's new zombie series with special effects from F/X demigod and Comic-Con hero Greg Nicotero, spiced their convention panel Friday with the premiere of a five-minute promotional reel. It was stocked high with blood and rotting flesh -- but the creators say they wanted to show more.

"We had to cut back on this reel because it's a family convention," producer Gale Anne Hurd explained to the crowd.

Producer Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption") enthusiastically added that during one violent scene, "There's a big George Romero splat of blood" that couldn't be shown in the preview.

The creators insist, in fact, that they're "dedicated to making this as authentic as we can" -- although how authentic a series can be when its subject is a "zombie apocalypse" might make an interesting subject for debate.

When the moderator asked whether the clip needed any setup, Darabont shot back, "It's about zombies" and cued the film.

Based on a popular comic-book series by Robert Kirkman, "Walking Dead" stars British actor Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, a cop who becomes a leader of human desperadoes as the zombies close in.

Costar Sarah Wayne Callies ("Prison Break") drew some gasps when she said that prior to being cast, she'd never actually read a comic book but has since become a fan. "Greg Nicotero has ruined my life," she said, casting a glance toward the makeup and effects pioneer.

But to the cast and crew, the real horror may have come from the sizzling temperatures in Atlanta, where the series is shot.

"Our asses have been kicked by this heat," Darabont said, adding that he wished the state of California had passed tax credits that would have allowed the production to take place in that state.

Looks amazing. Hopefully they will find a way to put lots of sex and gore in an AMC program.

It's coming out in October.

I'm really looking forward to it. AMC can do it right. Not many stations would be able to.
