The Walking Dead TV Series
« on: Aug 16, 2009 at 11:27 AM »
I am SOOOOOOOOO stoked about this.

-----

American Movie Classics, the cable channel that's been known lately more for its TV shows (Mad Men, Breaking Bad) than its movies, has acquired the rights to the popular comic book The Walking Dead. The comic is about a group of survivors making their way through an apocalyptic world overrun by zombies; not a unique concept, but it's supposed to be darn good. Although CBS had a zombie TV pilot called Babylon Fields that sadly was never picked up in 2007, The Walking Dead will have the muscle of Frank Darabont (The Mist, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) behind it as writer, producer AND director, so odds seem pretty good that we'll see it hit the small screen at some point.

------

I think TV is a better medium for this awesome comicbook series. A movie just won't do it justice. I hope Darabont won't veer away too much from the elements that make The Walking Dead such a great read.

I'm an avid reader of the Walking Dead series and I always felt it was paced like a TV show.

I'm excited for this!  ;D

With the pilot episode still to air a couple of months away, unconfirmed reports are starting to circulate that a second season of The Walking Dead has already been greenlit. While AMC has issued no official announcement, news from director/writer/executive producer Frank Darabont seems more hopeful.

The first season of The Walking Dead will premiere with a 90-min. pilot on October 31, 2010 on AMC. Based on the trailer alone, I am so looking forward to this. Enough with the freaking vampires--bring on the zombies!

Watch the awesome official trailer here

If there's an "event" TV moment for me this year, it will have to be this. I've been a big fan of the series. I've been there for the very first issue and I know Darabont is going to do well with the source material.

I actually only discovered the comic book series through scans but have since been following in it in print through the hardcovers. Darabont is a great match especially as the Mist touches upon the same scenarios and emotions in the Walking Dead.

however, I'm still wondering how far they would go especially when the series reaches the Governor's storyline. The violence there reminds me Alexander Aja's movies.

The Walking Dead is the only piece of zombie fiction I could stand and actually like a lot. So I have high hopes for the show . . .also, it's Darabont and what he did with The Mist was neat. Even if it's only half as good as the Romero zombie films (the only zombie films I could stand except for Rec and They Came Back) , I'm in.

I hear it's also showing on eztv, where I will most likely be watching it.   ;D

Darabont captured the pacing and intensity of the comicbook. Very well made first episode.

I thought that was her (Dr. Tancredy???), sobrang quick lang yung camera time niya sa teaser ng The Walking Dead on FOX.
