From Superherohype.com: Production begins today in Atlanta for AMC's adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic "The Walking Dead." The six-episode first season--written, produced and directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk)--follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home after a zombie apocalypse. More, including photos and an interview with Darabont here. Those zombies look awesome. It looks like AMC will have yet another hit on their hands, if the source material and their current track record is anything to go by. I'm pretty excited.
