Stephen King wants to try writing a horror story.
This is how angry Edgar Wright gets when you ask him to do more zombie projects.
What could possibly go wrong in jail?
Anyone concerned that ‘The Walking Dead’s” second season would be completely improvised can breathe a sigh of relief. No undead zip-zap-zow for you.
The show’s executive producer offers up her thoughts on the continuation of the zombie apocalypse.
Hot off the runaway success of The Walking Dead, CW is considering giving teenage girls a zombie show of their very own.
AMC President Charlie Collier says season four of “Breaking Bad” will take it to the next level and be “truly phenomenal.” Also, where’s the zombie apocalypse headed from here?
Some will be entertaining, most will be unwatchable, but each project will push us closer to the point of over-saturation.
Between “Freaks & Geeks” and “Undeclared,” Judd Apatow launched the careers of a lot of dudes. Now, all those dudes are going to be reunited onstage for PaleyFest 2011.
Screw plot, gimme zombie executions!
Just to put it in perspective, remember that political blog you started back in college? It received six total clicks, four of which were from you at different machines around the computer lab. Multiply that times a million, and you’ve got the same numbers that AMC is putting up.
Episode 6 (the series finale), in which our stinky crew raids the CDC liquor cabinet like it’s the last day on Earth, wastes hot water despite orders to the contrary, and more!
Frank Darabont has liquidated the entire writing staff of “The Walking Dead” and plans on utilizing freelancers for the show’s second season.
Survivors deal with the aftermath of the zombie attack on the camp and eventually hit the road. Oh, and readers might be a little thrown off by a new twist…
Episode 4, in which Rick and Co. search Atlanta for “Stumpy” Merle, get their guns, lose Glenn, make new friends, get Glenn back, and then return to a zombie swarm eating its way through the camp.
Apparently Emma Bell jives well with horror. Currently portraying a survivor of the zombie apocalypse in AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Bell will take on the role of Death’s leading female target in the fifth installment of the Final Destination series next year.
Fans of “The Walking Dead” are about to get hit by a double whammy. Not only are there only three episodes left in the ridiculously short first season, but viewers will have to wait until next October to witness season two.
Welcome to the mobile edition of the weekly “Walking Dead” post. Why mobile? Because I’m sitting in an airport writing on my phone, watching on my iPad. Hence, no pics and probably plenty of typos (which my editor had better had fixed).
If New Line dumped Caruso over length (the same reason my last girlfriend dumped me), why would they bring in a guy who is talking about a multi-episode T.V. show? Any ideas?
Thanks to a buttload (Nielson terminology) of people supporting zombie drama by tuning into “The Walking Dead,” AMC has picked up the show for a second season of 13 episodes. Yay, good television and the living dead can survive!
Episode 2, in which Rick Grimes makes some new friends, dismembers a corpse, and gets the F out of Dodge.
In attempting to survive the zombie apocalypse, focus is key; distractions can and will prove deadly, followed shortly by undeadly. For the male protagonists of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Sarah…
Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)
"The Walking Dead" premiered at long last! Everyone was so excited that the entire country dressed up in costumes and had parties and went trick-or-treating, JUST to celebrate this shows premiere! What did you think of it (post a comment, let's discuss)? The ScreenJunkies review can be found here, and my review can be found here so I don't need to review it again. But what we wanted to do each week was have a post where we can discuss the show and point out some of the cooler moments, so let's do it.

AMC is promoting the premiere of "The Walking Dead" by unleashing hordes of the undead all over the globe. Well, hundreds of actors playing the undead actually. The invasion will begin tomorrow in Taipei and Hong Kong before spreading to Chicago, London, New York, Munich, Madrid, Rome, Athens, Washington, D.C., Johannesburg, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, and Los Angeles. The herds will attack landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Big Ben, and the Lincoln Memorial.
This is a terrible idea. The show looks great and all, but this kind of promotion is the exact cover that the real zombies have been waiting for. Go ahead and laugh, but I'll be prepared. I'm already stocked up on canned goods and when those run out, I'll dip into the Whisker Lickins'. I'll be on spending the next week on my roof. You all get one warning shot. (The Wrap)

I’m endlessly fascinated by zombie apocalypse stories, or any apocalypse stories for that matter. I just love to see the survivors scour the wastelands for supplies. The more supplies they have to gather, the better. There’ve been other post-apocalyptic shows but they didn’t have the “Mad Men” street cred. AMC’s zombie apocalypse show does.

If you're having a hard time waiting for the premiere of "The Walking Dead, we've got something that might hold you over. AMC has unveiled a 17-minute behind-the-scenes featurette chronicling the making of Frank Darabont's epic new Zombie series based on the Robert Kirkman comics.
My recommendation: starting tomorrow, watch one minute a day for the next 17 days. If my math is correct, that should get you to October 31st, the day on which the first episode will air. If my math is incorrect, I apologize. I went to public school. (First Showing)
Watch 17 minutes of "Walking Dead" goodness, after the jump…
Hey "The Walking Dead" producers, Daniel Kanemoto made an awesome title sequence for your new show. You should consider using it. Fans of the graphic novels might think the Eels song "Fresh Blood" is too upbeat for the bleak series, but at least we know this guy can put together an impressive "ripped from the pages of the comic" sequence. I say hire him to produce another one with the song of your choosing. A Korn/Mudvayne collabo would be perfect. Don't you agree, avid "Walking Dead" fans?

New York Comic Con always pales in comparison to the San Diego convention. Food and water are over-priced, the booth-bait is in short supply, the panels are meh, and David Hasselhoff never shows up on a party bus. Until this year.
AMC has announced that they will premiere full scenes from "The Walking Dead" at the convention on Sunday, September 10th. In addition, the series stars, producers, and creators will be in attendance to field questions from New York's finest nerds. Hasselhoff remains unconfirmed. (Walking Dead Blog)
AMC continues to tease us with materials from their upcoming Frank Darabont-produced series "The Walking Dead." Today we have a sweet poster for the show that captures a stunning scene from the trailer. With all that gridlock, you'd think some zombies would be shuffling in and out of lanes looking for brains. Maybe they know Frank Grimes would dismount his steed and put a bullet in their eye. It might as well be a shot of L.A.'s 405 Freeway on a Sunday afternoon.
"The Walking Dead" premieres Halloween night at 10PM on AMC. (/Film)
