AMC Greenlights Darabont’s The Walking Dead

Like zombies? Funny zombies? Serious zombies? Zombies in the movies? Well now you’re gonna get plenty of zombies on TV, too, because AMC has just greenlighted Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” comic books. Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd will produce the tale of a police officer from a small town who wakes up to find the world infested with zombies, and must locate his missing wife and child in the overrun world. I read the first 10 issues or so of the comics, and found it to be pretty decent, even if the premise is perhaps a little too “28 Days Later”-ish.
