Robert Kirkman Meets Frank Darabont as The Walking Dead Arrive at AMC

Television is due for an onslaught of zombies as AMC recently secured the rights to Robert Kirkman’s comic book series The Walking Dead. It gets better, folks: Three-time Oscar Nominee Frank Darabont (The Mist, The Fly 2) has signed on as writer-director for the miniseries as has Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon) for executive producer.
