Jim Rash, Robert Kirkman and Blair Butler
Zombies have treated the brains behind AMC's The Walking Dead very well. But Robert Kirkman, who originated the comic book series that inspired the show, admits the early days of his career were slower than, well, the undead. "You have to be crazy to get into [writing]," Kirkman tells SundanceTV's The Writers' Room, which digs into the art of creating some of TV's biggest series. "I went massively into debt."
On April 25's special comic book-themed episode, Kirkman recounts some of the obstacles he faced in getting the TV adaptation of...

Do you know why Col. Glenn Talbot is joining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? — Pauley
With Coulson & Co. on the run, Talbot will be tasked with tracking them down. And it doesn't sound like he has friendly plans for our heroes should he catch them. "Longtime Marvel fans know that he's been a nemesis to anything that's organized," executive producer Jeph Loeb tells me. "I love the fact that [Adrian Pasdar] referred to him as a world-class jerk. [Our] Talbot continues that tradition."

The survivors of The Walking Dead have found themselves in yet another perilous position.
During Sunday's season finale, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his small group made their way to Terminus, a community that promised safety for all those who arrived. Once the group learned just how much of a lie that was, they quickly tried to make a run for it. But they ended up being forced by Terminus leader Gareth (Andrew J. West) into a train car, where they were reunited with Glenn (Steven Yeun), Maggie (Lauren Cohan), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.). Suffice it to say, Gareth and the people of Terminus are not allies.

However, executive producer Robert Kirkman tells TVGuide.com that Gareth will not be...

What's the state of Phillip and Elizabeth's marriage when The Americans returns? — June
Well, I may forgo watching the premiere with my parents since it features a scene that shows some pretty intense sexual wrestling between Phillip and Elizabeth. In other words, they're doing OK. "They're ready to be married," executive producer Joel Fields tells me. "What they're going to discover is having been fake-married for a long time, real marriage is not an easy thing. When you have two kids, there's family to contend with. Add to that their work is life-and-death and the future of mankind hangs in the balance, there's a little bit of pressure for them."

It wasn't long before at least a few of the scattered survivors found their way back to each other during Sunday's The Walking Dead. But those who did reunite were put through the paces first.
As Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) struggled to...
The destruction of the prison during The Walking Dead's midseason finale served as a reset of sorts. Once again, the group of survivors we've known and loved over the past four seasons are on their own. But it's that exact reason why this world is the most dangerous it's ever been for those who had come to expect a level of security while living in the prison. Will Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) survive? More importantly, how will the rest of the group fare without the man who once led them to safety? TVGuide.com caught up with executive producer Robert Kirkman to get the scoop on what's next:
Things have gotten so bleak on AMC's The Walking Dead that it's not always easy to tell the walking wounded from the actual zombies. Which is part of the point as the fourth season resumes with the beleaguered survivors of the prison battle scattered to the winds — so much so that in this week's episode (Sunday, 9/8c), written by Robert Kirkman ...
