?It’s a bit of a slow news day, so forgive me for reporting something good but not particularly needing a lot of in-depth analysis — AMC has officially ordered a pilot of that Walking Dead series it had been thinking about. Director Frank Darabont apparently wrote the script based on the Robert Kirkman comics, and if all goes well, we’ll have the Walking Dead on a weekly basis later this year or early next. That’s it, really. We’re getting at least one episode of a Walking Dead TV show. Not bad. Cross your fingers.
