Someone pinch me. I still can’t believe that a network, but particularly a quality network like AMC, is doing an honest to goodness TV series about a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies. I mean, WTF? How did I get so lucky? And it’s not like this is a shitty, cheap production, either. If you’ve seen any of the trailers (or even just took a gander at this sizzle reel below), then you know a lot of money went into this thing.
Plus, they got Frank friggin Darabont to run the whole shebang. And we know Frank Darabont doesn’t do shitty movies on the cheap. So enjoy this awesome, nearly 5-minutes long sizzle real for AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, set to stalk your TV this October on Halloween night.
The cast includes Emma Bell, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, Linds Edwards, Laurie Holden, Andrew Lincoln, Adrian Kali Turner, Sarah Wayne Callies, and Steven Yeun. Frank Darabont directs the pilot.
