AMC has released more pics of Frank Darabont’s upcoming TV series, The Walking Dead (I caught them over at ComingSoon). The first is of Andrew Lincoln as Grimes, the last is Robert Kirkman, one of the creators of the comic (along with Tony Moore and Charles Adlard) and executive producer of the show. Darabont also wrote the first six episodes and is producing, while Gale Anne Hurd is executive producing also.
The show’s synopsis (via Wikipedia): The Walking Dead tells the story of the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows a small group of survivors traveling across the country in search of a new home away from the hoards of zombies. The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world, and as their situation grows and more grim, the group’s desperation to survive pushes them to do almost anything to stay alive.
The Walking Dead is currently shooting in Atlanta and will premiere in October during AMC’s Fearfest. You can click the images to enlarge.
