AMC is developing a companion series for The Walking Dead to launch in 2015, with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert acting as executive producers.
Network boss Charlie Collier called the spin-off a "no brainer." "We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters," he said in a statement. "It's a big world and we can't wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse."
Dallas Roberts has been unforgettable in numerous recent roles, including the doomed Milton Mamet on The Walking Dead and Alicia Florrick's gay brother, Owen, on The Good Wife. Now he's landed a steady gig as Poppy Montgomery's inscrutable new NYPD boss, Elliot, on Unforgettable. Here's why he lives up to the show's title.
AMC has released a first look at The Walking Dead's new poster and from the looks of it, Rick & Co. are breaking out of prison.
Fall Preview: Get scoop on 40 returning shows
When Season 4 premieres, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his group are still locked up with dangers, including The Governor, still lurking outside. But as Season 4 trailers have shown, things aren't exactly safe inside either.
The Walking Dead star David Morrissey has been cast in the lead role for AMC's drama pilot Line of Sight, Deadline reports.

Question: My question is about the new Joss Whedon show that has one of the most convoluted names I've ever heard: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I am a Whedon fan to the max, having watched every episode of every TV (and Internet) show he has ever done, and enjoyed them thoroughly. I am not, however, a moviegoer nor a comic book reader. I cannot remember the last theatrical production I've seen, and the only comics I read are the Buffy/Angel follow-ups. And that leaves me concerned about S.H.I.E.L.D. Every article I read, and even the just-released preview, mentions events that happened/people who existed in one or more theatrical movies, and many articles mention future movies that will tie into the events on the show. Since I never watched those movies — and most likely won't watch the future movies — am I going to be totally lost when the television show premieres?

Question: What are your thoughts on the selection of Scottish actor Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who's Twelfth Doctor? I have to admit that I had no idea who he was — I assume he's more of a household name in the U.K. I don't want to prematurely bash the selection and I'm willing to see how things work out, but it seems to be a traditional choice and even more so since the modern Doctor Who series has featured younger actors. During the special that announced the selection, the show runner ...

Comic book fans of The Walking Dead knew exactly who that hooded figure was that saved Andrea (Laurie Holden) in the Season 2 finale. And they were equally excited when, moments later, we got a glimpse of the infamous prison. It all meant that the inevitable Michonne vs. The Governor showdown was coming!

So, how will NCIS actually write Ziva's exit from the show? — Samantha
ADAM: Given that Ziva was one of three agents who resigned to protect Gibbs, it actually won't be that far-fetched. The season will open with a two-parter that features Colin Hanks returning to threaten Gibbs, prompting a team reunion. "Ziva is out in the ether and Tony has to go off and find her," executive producer Gary Glasbgerg says. "The second episode is really all about Tony and Ziva, and, I hope, delivers all the things the Tiva fans are going to want." Adds Michael Weatherly: "The will they/won't they is answered. Tony's going to be forced to face this Sword of Damocles that's been hanging over him since Season 3." That's Greek for "they're totally gonna do it," right? ...
