10 Cool Things From The Walking Dead Panel at Comic-Con

Sarah Wayne Callies and Andrew Lincoln

"It's all about slim chances now, and a slim chance is better than none." This grim, yet hopeful statement wraps up the Season 2 trailer of AMC's The Walking Dead that premiered at Comic-Con on Friday in San Diego. The zombie series is currently in production in Georgia, but the cast and crew took a break from the heat and ticks (yes, ticks) to sit in an air-conditioned ballroom to share a few choice morsels with fans. Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea, promises, "If you're a fan of The Walking Dead graphic novel, you're going to love this season."

The Walking Dead executive producer Robert Kirkman says a recent report about changes in the show's writing staff is "unfortunate" and "premature."

Earlier this week, Deadline.com reported that executive producer Frank Darabont had let his writing staff go, including his No. 2 guy, executive producer Charles "Chic" Eglee. The report also suggested that Darabont might not hire a new team of writers to pen Season 2's 13 episodes, but would instead assign scripts to freelancers.

"It's kind of unfortunate that it's being reported that our writing staff has been fired because that's not the case," Kirkman, who created the comic book series on which the AMC zombie drama is based, tells TVGuide.com... read more

The Walking Dead: A Zombie Show with More Heart Than Brains

Andrew Lincoln, The Walking Dead

If you've seen any zombie film, the flesh-craving creatures of AMC's The Walking Dead aren't exactly novel.

That's not to say that makeup and special effects wizard Gregory Nicotero hasn't seriously outdone himself. Or that being caught on a city block surrounded by hundreds of soulless, hungry ghouls isn't terrifying. It's just that this story is about more than delivering a few scares.

"The most compelling part of the series is how emotionally involved you become in these characters' lives," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (Terminator, Aliens) tells TVGuide.com. "Even though I've read all the scripts and was there when it was shot, I still find myself becoming surprisingly emotional in almost every episode over something the characters are having to endure. To me, that is unexpected and remarkable."

That idea was paramount for Hurd's collaborator, writer-producer-director Frank Darabont, who tried for years to get an adaptation Robert Kirman's beloved series of comic books off the ground... read more

AMC Brings Zombies to Primetime with the Harrowing and Grisly The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

With its putrid zombie hoard, The Walking Dead is the ultimate Halloween gift for fans of gore: There are splattered heads, swarming flies and enough tattered, rotting flesh to make most watch through splayed fingers. But peel back just a thin layer of the decaying skin and you'll find the heart of AMC's newest drama is entirely human — racing 90 beats a minute, pumping furiously to stay alive. "There's us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart," says deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

"It's a story that anyone can relate to," explains Robert Kirkman, author of the acclaimed comic-book series on which the show is based. "The zombies are representative of disaster, but the focus is on the people — everything they go through."

Rick Grimes is an Everyman with everything: a wife, a son... read more
