The Walking Dead - Looks Amazing and Premiers on Oct. 31!
A new show on AMC called "The Walking Dead" is set to premier on October 31, and it looks amazing and is getting a lot of attention. The show is based on the comic book "The Walking Dead" written by Robert Kirkman. The show takes place in Atlanta following a man named Rick Grimes who wakes up from being unconscious for a period of time and finds himself in a zombie waste land. Rick sets out to find his family who is now missing. This is who Ricks epic quest begins and what forms the story line of The Walking Dead.
The show has a huge advantage having some very good people behind the scenes. Frank Darabont is the developer and director of the series, who also directed movies like the The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile. The series is being produced by Gale Anne Hurd how has had several successful movies including Aliens, The Terminator and The Abyss. So the series has a lot of experience behind it and is sure to impress.
The show and comic book are very closely tied and with the comic book which has been running for over 7 years now providing over 75 stories for the show to follow. The series will follow the plot line of the comic books with occasional divergences, which is understandable and will make for a great series. The story the series is going to tell is more about the people than it is about zombies and the walking dead. The series is going to explore the human condition from several perspectives all the while staying true to the comic book and zombie loving people around the world.
I personally can't wait for the series to premier. I have a feeling it's going to be like Lost set in Atlanta with zombies! The thought of that excites me and it's about time they made a great TV show with zombies in it.
