If there’s one thing that’more controversial than the content of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” it’s the revolving showrunner door that’s been in motion since Season 1.
Today creator Robert Kirkman had some words about the newest head honcho, Scott Gimple.
In a recent interview with Zap2It, Kirkman dropped the following on fans…
“I think having Scott Gimple come up and become an executive producer and showrunner is gonna provide a very tremendous voice for the show. I think it’s gonna give us a clear path moving forward. He’s been an integral part of the writers room since the beginning of Season 2. I think we’ve got some really exciting times ahead of us under his leadership.”
“When that slot opened up, he was obviously the clear choice. You know he also wrote the episode where Sophia comes out of the barn [“Pretty Much Dead Already”]. A lot of the key moments that fans love that are constantly talked about are things he was a very big part of in the room and in some cases ended up writing directly into the episodes. He’s been a really strong asset to us and was the clear choice.”
Kirkman continues, “Scott has a really amazing vision for where the show goes. He has it sort of fully mapped out. He’s collaborative; he’s an amazing writer and amazing producer. We really couldn’t be luckier to have him as our new showrunner.”
