Called the best comic book of this decade, The Walking Dead is being made into a TV series. The new zombie show is to air on AMC.
"The amazing black and white comic has come out monthly since 2003 and was a hot commodity almost immediately, so of course it sparked a bidding war. Good thing AMC won. “Walking Dead” tells the story of a band of survivors trying to find a safe sanctuary in a post-apocalyptic zombie-run world. Frank Darabont, who wrote “The Green Mile” and “The Shawshank Redemption,” is set to write, direct, and executive produce ... which proves the network is taking this venture seriously. Senior VP of Original Programming, Joel Silverman says:
“I don’t know of another series of books that has such beautiful storytelling, great human emotions and everything that really works on AMC. It allows us to stay where we want to stay: in the world of smart, sophisticated storytelling and apply that to a show that we think the audience would love.”
We’re hoping they can bring the sexy back to the undead. "
