The Walking Dead Come to AMC

Here is what AICN’s Herc has to say about the most awesome zombie series coming to AMC:

AMC has greenlit to series “The Walking Dead,” writer-director Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel series.

The funnybook, set in a world overrun by zombies, follows a handful of survivors in search of a safe place to live.

Jon Bernthal (Manny Rodriguez in “The Pacific”) will play Shane in the six-hour project.

Veteran writer-producer Charles Eglee (“Moonlighting,” “Murder One,” “Dark Angel,” “The Shield,” “Dexter”) has also signed on to the project.

Darabont wrote and directed the pilot. His big-screen writer-director credits include “The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Green Mile” and “The Mist.”

AMC is the channel behind “Breaking Bad” and multiple outstanding-drama Emmy winner “Mad Men.”
