Walking Dead TV series official

Walking Dead is the best comic to come out in years, infact, I had given up on comics until I read the first issue of it. It's a zombie story, but it's a zombie story with soul. The characters act real, the writing keeps you wanting more, it's genius. What makes it even more relatable is the fact main characters get killed off, the writer wanted to stray away from fairy tale endings as much as possible. IGN is reporting that the series got noticed, noticed enough to get made into a television series that will be premiering on AMC. The full report is below -

"The first season will be a short one – just six-episodes.

Jon Bernthal (
The Pacific) will play the character Shane. However, we're also told that the rumors that Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting / Eli Stone) will play the lead role of Rick Grimes are not true, so look for an announcement on that front soon.

Based on the Robert Kirkman-created comic book of the same name, 
The Walking Dead comes from Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), who is writing, directing and executive producing. Gale Anne Hurd(The Terminator / The Incredible Hulk) and Kirkman also serve as Executive Producers, along with a new addition – Charles "Chic" Eglee (The Shield / Dexter).
The Walking Dead will premiere in October on AMC.

If you're not familiar with the story of 
The Walking Dead, check out AMC's description of the series:
The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The comic goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive."
