As we get closer and closer to the Season 2 premiere date, the promos for AMC’s zombie drama The Walking Dead get more and more revealing. With about two and a half weeks to go, a new 90-second trailer has been unveiled which offers the best look yet at the upcoming season.

The new television season isn’t quite upon us yet, but the networks have definitely started gearing up. HBO’s just released an extended trailer for the eighth (and last) season of its escapist Hollywood fantasy Entourage, set to premiere in two weeks.

Now producer Gale Anne Hurd insists that reports of the demise of the writing staff are very much exaggerated. Comic series creator, producer and co-writer Robert Kirkman also chimes in. Read More »
If you were already excited for the brand new AMC show The Walking Dead, then this 17 minutes behind the scenes featurette might make your head explode. The show, executive produced by Frank Darabont, is based on a comic book series by Robert Kirkman about how a group of humans survive after a zombie apocalypse.

But after you watch this video which discusses everything from the effects, production design, casting, screenwriting, location shooting and so much more?

Today we finally got our first glimpse at Frank Darabont’s small screen adaptation of The Walking Dead at San Diego’s Comic-Con, and it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect when you think Darabont-meets-zombies.
