Zombie TV Series to Join 'Mad Men' on AMC

One of TV's hottest properties, "Mad Men," is about to have some cold, stiff company. Variety reports that AMC is close to a deal with "Shawshank Redemption" director Frank Darabont to adapt zombie comic "The Walking Dead" for television.

The series, which will follow a group of survivors dodging a zombie apocalypse, will be a departure from genre flicks like "Dawn of the Dead," focusing more on character and drama than pure splatterific action.

And if the show's ratings start to flag, there's always the prospect of a "Walking Dead/Mad Men" crossover episode. Wouldn't it be a kick to see the zombies get eaten alive for once?




How awesome is that? Or not? I like the idea of a show about the survivors in a zombie filled world, but is there enough there to make it a good or even long lasting show. I mean, lets face it, there's only so many ways to kill a zombie, and even if the main focus will be character and drama as the article says, isnt it all still 'been there done that'? Whats left to be done?
Friend gets bitten and must be shot. Done.
Friend sacrifices self for his group, gets bitten, and then must be shot. Done
Even the Dawn of the Dead remake gave us a zombie baby.
What more drama can be made in a world full of zombies trying to crack your crunchy outside to get to the soft yummy inside?

That's enough drama in of itself no?
heres my prediction, and I hope its wrong.

"Oh no. The car that can save all our lives by getting us out of here is out of gas. The pumps are down in this dark yet unexplored area. Lets go get some."

"Arrrrrrrrg BRAINS!"

"Bob NO!"

*Bob sacrifices himself so friends can escape with gasoline, gets bitten, and later for emotional impact, is shot by his friends*

You think I can get on the team of screen writers?

I have a sneaking suspicion that you may be right, Six. Just a little bit. Wink

If they take some inspiration from Dead Set, this could become my new obsession for when Lost finishes next year, but whether the director of Shawshank would want to go in that direction is just another story Puzzled
Then again, with the success of True Blood... Smile

Well there still doesnt seem to be much info on the show that I can find. I have read a lot of things about the comic though, and it sounds disturbing enough that this may actually be good. That coupled with the fact that it will be a cable channel show.......I may let my hopes get up like [ ] this much. Very Happy= :D
