Good news for fans of Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead series, AMC has given the green light to begin production on the pilot episode of the television series.
Frank Darabont penned the adaptation and is on board to direct. Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion will exec produce with Darabont.
Back in August the news that AMC had picked up the television rights to the series sent a surge of positive support Kirkman’s way, and I can only imagine this news has zombie fans even more excited about making sure their cable provider has the cable channel in its lineup.
No word on an air date yet, but I’m guessing we’ll see something pop up in the fall lineup.
