Thus far we have approved of the casting for Frank Darabont’s small screen adaptation of the Robert Kirkman zombie epic The Walking Dead, but the living aren’t the only thing Darabont and company are getting right as today AMC provided excited hungry fans with their first look at the show’s shamblers!
The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic series. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, director, and exec producer with Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and AMC has already ordered six episodes.
