TV: Frank Darabont Directing Only the Pilot Episode of ‘The Walking Dead’… For Now

A little clarification about AMC’s forthcoming The Walking Dead TV series. Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that Frank Darabont will only be directing the pilot episode of the first season, although he could end up behind the camera more down the line. If the series gets picked up beyond the ordered 6 episodes you may see him direct a few more. Although, he will be on set during much of the filming, which is now taking place in Atlanta, GA for premiere this coming October. Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, and Michael Rooker all star in the adaptation that is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. Check out the first zombie images posted last week. Robert Kirkman’s incredible comic series is available via Image Comics.
