The question lately is, what the hell is going on over at AMC? Frank Darabont walked from his hit series and Breaking Bad producers were so frustrated that they flirted with the notion of taking the show to another network. When Darabont left The Walking Dead, it was assumed that he wasn’t up for the rigors of a 13 episode order. But, that doesn’t seem very likely given his talent and character. He did allude to some budget problems when he sat down for THR’s Show Runner Roundtable and now the LA Times has thrown out a pretty likely theory.
