‘Walking Dead’ to Premiere Black & White Version of Pilot

AMC will also air a preview of season three and all 19 episodes from seasons one and two during the July 7-8 "Walking Dead" preview weekend

"The Walking Dead" is about to look more like "Night of the Living Dead."

AMC is devoting the weekend of July 7-8 to a "Walking Dead" marathon that will include a special black-and-white version of the series pilot, created for fans of "The Walking Dead" comic book.

The marathon, a week before Comic-Con in San Diego, begins at 11:30 a.m. each day and includes all 19 episodes of the zombie drama's first two seasons. It will also include a special primetime episode of the series' aftershow, the Chris Hardwick-hosted "Talking Dead," and a look at the upcoming third season of "The Walking Dead."

Hardwick will introduce each installment from the set of season three in Atlanta.
