First photos and BTS from Frank Darabont's Walking Dead

06.02.2010

I have to admit, though it's not a film, I'm pretty excited for AMC's The Walking Dead. The network that's brought us Mad Men and Breaking Bad rarely, if ever, misses, and combined with great source material and Frank Darabont writing, producing and directing, this could be something to behold.

AMC has just released a gallery of promo photos for the show, along with a behind the scenes video with Darabont. I have to say, the zombie makeup looks fantastic so far, and Darabont says he wants to “do for zombies what Mad Men has done for advertising." Interpret that how you will.

Check out some of the photos below (click on them for the full gallery) and the BTS video below that.

this looks really awesome, but I wonder how their gonna get away with all the gore that a typical zombie film has? I hope this is heavily character driven as well!

Sounds cool and all, but TV is like velcro straps on shoes - it's easy as fuck to use, but its merits just don't warrant my interest.

YES!

The Walking Dead has easily become one of my favorite graphic novels/comics of all time. I can't wait til it comes out, however, due to the large amount of violence and sex, Im a little bummed we're getting it on AMC instead of a premium channel like HBO. But alas, both Mad Men and Breaking Bad are solid shows, so lets hope they know what they're doing. Either way, Zombies are looking good.

JESUS!!!

This thing is fast becoming one of the most mainstream cult shows ever and it hasnt even been filmed yet and I love they gt Darabont to do this and talk about it quote of the year "It will be fo zombies, what mad men did to advertising" the designs for the zombiesare also kicking ass and it will be nice to see a zom bie tv show and the fact that amc is letting them basically getaway with murder in terms of gore (sorry) is amazing and shows this show will have the balls to be daring enough and

NICE!

Those zombies look fantastic! I've been getting bored with them for a little while, but this looks like a breath (or lack of) fresh air.

Sweet.

The script was good

about what you'd expect if you respect the genre... with a little World War Z touch thrown in here and there. nice

looks great so far, i'm glad its a series, it would have never worked as a movie. Now if someone would do the same for Y: The Last Man i can be a happy nerd

This is also really good news. I only read the first volume of the series, but I pretty much have to get the rest now.
