TV: New ‘The Walking Dead’ Spot Declares An ‘Epic New Series’

AMC has posted the NYC Comic-Con promo spot for their upcoming series debut of The Walking Dead, which will premiere on Halloween night. With the pilot episode directed by Frank Darabont, “The Walking Dead” tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. AMC Fearfest kicks off on-air on Mon., Oct. 18 then runs through Sun., Oct. 31, culminating with the 90-minute world premiere of “The Walking Dead” on Sun., Oct. 31 at 10/9c (it will also be available in iTunes).
