We only have a few days left before the zombie epic “The Walking Dead” premieres on AMC and reignites our excitement for quality zombie-themed storytelling.
In recent years AMC has become a powerhouse in quality television, what with “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad”‘s performances at this year’s Emmy Awards. Given Frank Darabont’s direct involvement with the show (he wrote and directed the pilot episode), it’s easy to be very optimistic about just how “The Walking Dead” will turn out. Meanwhile, here are some images from the pilot episode to keep you occupied until Sunday night.
Don’t forget to check out Andrew Kasch’s review of “The Walking Dead”‘s first 2 episodes! It’s spoiler free.
“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 of the pilot, and exec producer with Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, IronE Singleton, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Chandler Riggs, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, Emma Bell, Adrian Kali Turner, Linds Edwards, Keith Allen Hayes, and Jim Coleman are all set to star.
“The Walking Dead” will premiere on Halloween night, Sunday, October 31st, at 10/9c on AMC! To stay up-to-the-minute on all things walker related, follow @WalkingDead_AMC on Twitter and visit “The Walking Dead” on Facebook.
