Zombie thriller will premiere Halloween night
AMC's first wholly owned original series, the highly anticipated zombie thriller "The Walking Dead," will premiere on Halloween night, the network announced Tuesday.
Based on a comic book by Robert Kirkman, "The Walking Dead" was adapted for TV and directed by "Shawshank Redemption" writer Frank Darabont.
AMC will debut the show with a special 90-minute premiere episode at 10 p.m.; subsequent episodes will be only one hour long.
To further promote the series, the network also unveiled a four-minute "Walking Dead Trailer" that had previously only been seen at Comic-Con. It shows a police officer who wakes up after being shot to find a world ravaged by a zombie apocalypse.
