I was recently alerted to an exciting new original AMC series by @Cephalopodboy.

The show is based on a series of graphic novels by Robert Kirkman, which have been produced since 2003. The series follows a town stricken by a zombie apocalypse—an ever-clichéd theme—but the television show looks extremely promising. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) and starring Andrew Lincoln (an English actor best known for his role in Love Actually), the series premier will be a 90-minute special following the police chief who awakens from the hospital to discover the world he’s always known has broken into a delicious zombie frenzy.

Check out the trailer here:
