AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics.  The series 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.  AMC’s “The Walking Dead” reigns as the most watched drama series in basic cable history for the Adults 18-49 demo.  AMC’s season one premiere of “The Walking Dead” was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Drama.
