Zombies get a slow shambling green light on AMC

So it's official, The Walking Dead is coming to the small screen.

The cable network on Monday gave a six-episode order to the apocalyptic zombie drama based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel series.

The project, written and directed by Frank Darabont [The Shawshank Redemption], has been on the fast track since AMC acquired the rights to the books in August after a bidding war. It was ordered to pilot in January.

“Dead” will begin production in June in Atlanta and is set to premiere in October during Fearfest, AMC’s annual marathon of thriller and horror films.

I was late to the party with the Walking Dead so I'm only on issue #60 and it's getting really hard to read. Battle Royale was this way for me. I really wanted to see the series to the end, but after every issue I feel like I need a hug. Here's hoping the TV show can capture some of that sadness and depression. Outside of VH1 it's hard to find really good depressing shows.
