The Walking Dead trailer released
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:
Robert Kirkman serves as an executive producer on the project and three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) serves as writer, director and executive producer. Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk), chairman of Valhalla Motion Pictures, serves as Executive Producer. David Alpert from Circle of Confusion serves as Executive Producer. Charles “Chic” Eglee (Dexter, The Shield, Dark Angel) will also serve as Executive Producer, and Jack LoGiudice (Sons of Anarchy, Resurrection Blvd) will serve as Co-Executive Producer.
The six episode season debuts on Halloween, but if you can’t wait that long you’ve got 7 years of books to mow though.
