AMC's 'The Walking Dead' Trailer (Frank Darabont, Gale Anne Hurd)
 
JoBlo link

Quote:

"The Walking Dead" revolves around an epidemic of apocalyptic proportions that has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months, society has crumbled: There is no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never fired a shot and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally begin living.
This looks fantastic. It's hard to go wrong with Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd behind this, and it's great to see Sarah Wayne Callies ('Prison Break') and Lennie James ('Jericho') again.

IMDB listing

The 90-minute premiere will air this Halloween, which is appropriate. I can't wait.

The trailer looks pretty cool - another link -

The lead doesn't look like I'd pictured, but it all looks worth watching.

What's with the music at the end?

Been wanting to check out Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" for some time now but the library has never had all the volumes of the trades in. This looks really cool and one of the few new fall shows I'll actually be checking out.

I wonder if it'll be able to live up to the comics in terms of their gruesome content.

Brilliant choice of music there. I might have also thought about Skeeter Davis 'The End Of The World', but that's actually a hopeful song if you really listen to it.

Maybe they'll do a cameo by Will Smith during sweeps!

Seriously, I wonder how long they can sustain this concept.... but then, Dexter's going into its 5th year.

As long as Kirkman can sustain the comic (which has been running since 2003 and doesn't seem to be ending any time soon), I would imagine.

Comics are a bit less expensive to bankroll than a t.v. series.

That said, I wish it lots of success!

Sorry, the way you worded it made me think you meant the premise was limited. I agree with you, hopefully the ratings hold up and we get a few seasons out of this.

Saw the trailer, and liked it. It's been awhile since I had a series to follow, so I'll be giving this one a go.
