TV News: The Walking Dead

Thanks to Iconogeek for the image

To say I'm ecstatic about this news is an understatement but Entertainment Weekly and no doubt everyone in the genre blogosphere are/will be reporting that;

Cable channel AMC is seeing zombies with The Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont. Variety reports that AMC is about to seal a development deal with Darabont to write and direct a series adapting Image Comics’ graphic novel series The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead series is about a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who seek a safe place to live with the help of a
police officer.
Joel Stillerman, AMC’s senior VP of programming, production
and original, said: “This is not about zombies popping out of closets. This is a
story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to
survive under these circumstances. The world is portrayed in a smart,
sophisticated way.”
