Greg Nicotero‘s role with AMC is expanding as the Emmy-winning special effects artist on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has inked a first-look deal to develop projects for the cable network, reports THR. Under the pact, Nicotero – who took home an Emmy on Saturday for his prosthetic makeup for the zombie series – has been named co-executive producer on the drama starring Andrew Lincoln. He’ll also direct an episode during Season 2, which premieres next month.
In addition, an October 3 date has been set for the “Walking Dead” six-episode web series penned by John Espositio, which tells the origin story of “Bicycle Girl,” the infamous “walker” from Season 1, as she struggles to survive and protect her family as the world begins to fall apart.
Nicotero also co-owns KNB EFX Group and his film, The United Monster Talent Agency, premiered last Halloween as part of AMC’s Fearfest. His credits include Day of the Dead and nearly 800 feature films.
