TV Series 'The Walking Dead'

'The Walking Dead' Coming to AMC

The horror genre has been hopping lately, with all the vampire, werewolf stories or sub-stories capturing the imaginations and attention of people all over; especially with Twilight and True Blood ... and soon to come The Vampire Diaries.

Riding that interest, AMC is about to release a new series based on an adaptation from the graphic novel "The Walking Dead," written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Frank Darabont. Apparently, Frank Darabont will be directing and writing the series.

According to Joel Stillerman, VP of programming, production and original content for AMC, the series will stay faithful to the tone and feel of the original stories.

While I'm sure there will be some zombie action in the storyline, the overall feel of the novels was to focus on the suvivors of a zombie apocalypse and how the drama of their lives play out in the aftermath. In other words, it's a survival story. Still sounds pretty cool; especially with Darabont signing on.
