Robert Kirkman Confirms AMC Ordered Walking Dead Pilot

Robert Kirkman Confirms AMC Ordered Walking Dead PilotVariety have lead with news that AMC has given greenlights to two drama pilots, The Walking Dead and The Killing.

The latter from Fox is based on the Danish TV show Forbrydelsen. But who cares about that, right?

Robert Kirkman just tweeted;

Variety is reporting AMC has ordered the pilot episode of THE WALKING DEAD… and they're right. Exciting times.

They state that "The Walking Dead is based on the graphic novel series about survivors of a zombie apocalypse by Robert Kirkman" , naturally missing out the people who drew the comic, specifically Tony Moore and Charles Adlard. But enough of that. Congrats to all involved. Let's get something in the can for San Diego, hey?

Frank Darabont has written the pilot script and will direct.

So… who wants to be zombie extras? I haven't been a zombie for ages.
