AMC is one of those channels you don’t really think of but wow, they sure know how to make good TV. With a track record of great original programming (Breaking Bad, Mad Men) it gives me really high hopes for The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead is based on a graphic novel of the same name and tells of life in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. The series follows Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), a small-town officer who wakes up in a deserted hospital (much like 28 Days Later) only to discover the world is overrun by zombies.
The show is based off the 2003 graphic novel of the same name by Robert Kirkman and is being put together by none other than Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist).
As a huge fan of zombies I personally cannot wait for this show to start. What do you guys think?
The 90-minute pilot episode will air on Halloween starting at 10 p.m.
