The Walking Dead: All Directors and Writers Revealed

Finally the entire creative line-up behind this October’s highly anticipated television adaptation of the Robert Kirkman zombie epic The Walking Dead has been revealed. That’s right, dead heads, get ready to find out who will be writing and directing each of the first six episodes!

The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.”

    Glad to see so many people from Breaking Bad and The Shield on board. This is gonna be incredible.

    kinda disappointing there isnt any people with more horror experiance then Darabont on this…im not a big fan of the shield and breaking bad i just hope they dont turn this into a more action adventure then horror type show

      I feel the opposite. I’m not a fan of cop shows or dramas but honestly, The Shield had the most consistent best tv writing I have ever viewed. Breaking Bad approached Shield brilliance in it’s 3rd season.

      The fact that these quality writers are working on a horror show is the best possible news. I want depth and complexity.
