The story is simple enough: Will Travers, a worker for an intelligence agency consultant API, discovers an encrypted message across crossword puzzles from several dates. The first person he tells this discovery to, his superior, dies in a mysterious train accident. After being promoted, Travers begins to probe further, running up against intense truths and characters like Kale Ingram, an almost-villain who rivals Ben from Lost.
AMC has been kind enough to release a behind-scenes look at the final episode of the series’ first season (warning — the vid contains SPOILERS).
When season 3 of Breaking Bad ended in a massive cliffhanger, fans became overwhelmingly distraught at the prospect of waiting an entire year for a new season. Now AMC is re-airing Mr. White’s entire descent into villainy so far in 2 back-to-back episodes every Wednesday from Dec. 6 to March 11, 2011.

Heads up New York Comic Con. AMC will preview the first full scenes of their highly anticipated new television series, The Walking Dead, on Sunday, October 10 at 2:15 PM in the IGN Theater. The event includes a panel discussion with producers and actors about the shooting process, followed by a Q&A session.
The trailer for AMC’s The Walking Dead is online and it looks very promising. It’s the same trailer that leaked earlier this month, but instead of the shaky handheld video from the crowd at Comic-Con, you can finally see the trailer in all its beautiful, zombiefied glory.
If the production values in the trailer are truly indicative of the show, it might just be another hit for AMC. The show has a powerful pedigree: Based off Robert Kirkman’s hugely-popular The Walking Dead comic series, the show has a stunning list of producers and writers. From the AMC website:
