A press release was issued by AMC that is home to all kinds of good news, including the first confirmation that there will indeed be a fourth season of their hit show “The Walking Dead.” Read on for all of the fun and worthwhile details.
“The American Red Cross Zombie Blood Drive” campaign kicks off September 24 and runs through October 22. It draws attention to this important cause through celebrity support from stars like Peter Jackson, The Black Keys, Joel Madden, Mena Suvari, Aisha Tyler, NASCAR’s Kurt Busch and EXTRA’s Maria Menounos, among others. Each celebrity will be “zombie-fied” through digital portraits created by “The Walking Dead’s” own special effects make-up guru Greg Nicotero.
As part of the campaign, the “zombie-fied” celebrity photos will run on-air in a custom Public ‘Zombie’ Announcement (“PZA”) on AMC and online at the network’s dedicated campaign micro-site. The PZA reminds viewers to use their brains and give blood through the Red Cross.
AMC is also organizing a special sweepstakes to thank those who support blood donation through the Red Cross. The grand prize is a visit to the [SEASON 4] set of “The Walking Dead” in Atlanta, Georgia.
Participating Celebrities: Peter Jackson, The Black Keys, Joel Madden, Mena Suvari, EXTRA’s Maria Menounos, Jimmy Smits, Laird Hamilton, NASCAR’s Kurt Busch, Aisha Tyler, Elisabeth Rohm and Whitney Port
