As things stand right now, at least in this cyborg’s one red roving eye, there are really only two relevant networks on television; FX and AMC. FX has fantastic felcercarb such as It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, the positively ‘un-BE -LIEVABLE‘ Rescue Me, and the highly offensive, but brilliant, Louis C.K. (if you’re not a fan of dry humor, or just can’t ‘get it’, then don’t bother). AMC, meanwhile, has the absolute best show on television – the work of art that is known as Breaking Bad.
Not a network to rest on it’s laurals, AMC is breaking out it’s latest series, Walking Dead, based on the Image Comics graphic novel by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard.
Reportedly, writer-director Frank Darabont is hewing close to the source material, taking most of the imagery straight from the comic. Considering that this is the same guy that brought us Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile I think we can expect something elegant and finely made.
The series will revolve around the ‘undead lives’ of a group of television network executives – known as zombies – who feed on the brains of their viewers – all the while canceling the best shows from their lineups. They also smoke a lot of cigarettes, are well dressed, and cook meth in an old Winnebago in the desert.
Here’s a teaser:
