'The Walking Dead' Gets Series Pick-Up

The Walking Dead'The Walking Dead' will be getting a full season of episodes on AMC and not just the pilot that was we mentioned a couple of months ago . The show is about a post-apocalyptic zombie world and follows a set of survivors trying to find a safe place to live. It's based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman.

The comic itself is pretty awesome and lends itself to television well; it's pretty much about the relationships between the survivors in a world where they can be killed or turned into zombies at any minute. Actually in the comic everybody who dies automatically becomes a zombie so if the television show follows the comic death and zombification will be much the same thing.

You know the series will be quality as well since Frank 'Shawshank Redemption' Darabont is writing and directing the pilot. I'm convinced that the fourth 'Indiana Jones' film would have been much better if they used his version of the script.

Hooray, some good news.
Hopefully AMC treats this as well as their other original series. If so, we're all in for some great TV.

I read this on a different site yesterday, and am a little dissapointed it tool so long for TVS to pick it up. I look to this site for my breaking news.

But this is fantastic news, I really can't wait and hope that this can become a breakout hit. AMC has a great track record and the material in the books will be great for action, drama, and character stories. I'm pumped!
