It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

AMC has decided to make another The Walking Dead-based television series but without any of the characters you know. (Is this where I make the joke about that show already being on air?) I hereby dub this new series, Other Walking Dead, à la Coraline.READ MORE

This new promo picture from season four of The Walking Dead, like the first poster we saw, has Michonne on a horse. Oh, and the horse is named Flame. There’s really not much else I can say about that: My brain has collapsed from awesome. Take it away, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd:
“With gas at a premium, with the fact that vehicles break down, I think we would return to the days of horseback riding and you can graze them as you go in a place like Georgia. You don’t have to carry food for them. They feed themselves, so to speak. It goes along with the new approach this season of sustainability. With a horse, you can go through the woods. You can get around obstacles. You can’t do that in a vehicle. If a tree falls and blocks the road, you can’t go through the forest. You’re not going to make it through. It’s actually much more of a useful choice. Not only that, but Michonne looks so badass on it.”
Tell us about it.READ MORE

Come with me, into a world of infinite possibilities. No, not the genre of science fiction. No, not the actual future lineup of the Syfy channel. This is just the projects that Syfy has announced it is putting into development, which means that they’ve got writers and producers and maybe directors and if everything miraculously works out, the channel might some day do something as awesome as Battlestar Galactica ever again.
That’s what I mean by infinite possibilities.READ MORE

The giant robot-centric anime Gaiking has had a long life. Originally an animated series in the 70s, it later became part of Mattel’s Shogun Warriors toy line and screened in the US as part of the anime anthology Force Five. There was a remake in 2005 and a trio of English-dubbed movies cut from the original series a few years later. And now it’s getting its very own live-action movie courtesy of The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd.READ MORE

The Walking Director executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is moving from horror to sci-fi with the alien invasion drama Horizons, which was just picked up by USA. There’s an additional bit of info, though, that moves this show from “Huh, OK, this could be cool” to “When will this air? Give it to me now!” Namely: It’s set during World War II. USA has discovered the key to my heart, and it is the phrase “sci-fi period drama.”READ MORE

Robert Kirkman’s television adaptation of his comic, The Walking Dead, was shopped around to several networks before finding a home at AMC. I could understand zombies being a tough sell at any network considering what goes into making them but that’s not the reason folks like NBC and HBO passed. No, they passed because they feared The Walking Dead was too violent.READ MORE

This past Friday, a panel took place at North Hollywood’s TV Academy, where cast and crew members of AMC‘s The Walking Dead discussed the various goings-on of the second season as well as where the upcoming third season will take our harried survivors. No real spoilers ahead, unless you want to know absolutely nothing about the next season; details were more like character direction, confirmation of storylines, etc. Also around the same time as the panel, executive producer extraordinaire Gale Anne Hurd got some great news beyond the zombie front! She will be involved in even more shows that will be on television, and this is always wonderful to hear!READ MORE

With her astounding genre cred, one’s first reaction to hearing that producer Gale Anne Hurd is producing anything is usually joy, excitement, and eager anticipation. Like when we found out she was producing a show about Area 51. And then, you find out that Hurd is going to be producing a show about pirates for FX, and one can barely even contain themselves. And that is exactly what’s happening: following her runaway success as a producer of AMC‘s The Walking Dead, Hurd will lend her talents to a new series about the infamous Jamaican town Port Royal. Heavens to Betsy, imagine all the zombies vs. pirates vs. aliens arguments we’re going to get to have!READ MORE
