AMC will be releasing a TV series based on the hit comic The Walking Dead this October, and they’ve shown a few stills to whet our appetites for the Zombie Apocalypse. For those not in the know, the comic follows the story of a police officer (Rick Grimes) who awakens after being in a coma only to discover that the dead have started walking for some reason.
Throughout his adventures, Rick is reunited with family, he makes new friends, and he discovers just how vile humanity can become if society collapses. This is a spectacular comic series which everyone should be reading, and from the looks of it, the Walking Dead TV adaptation is shaping up nicely.
The six-episode first season will be written, produced and directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile). The comic was created by Robert Kirkman, who is also serving as an Executive Producer on the TV series.
