Wondering why we’re so excited for AMC’s upcoming new series THE WALKING DEAD? Easy. For one, it’s written and directed by Frank Darabont, the man behind one of our all-time favorite movies The Shawshank Redemption. Two, it marks Sarah Wayne Callies much-anticipated return to series television post-PRISON BREAK. And three, based on the comic book of the same name, it chronicles a group of people in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. In other-words, what’s not to love?
