    what is this I don't even

    Glen Mazzara might've found himself out of a job when he was canned as The Walking Dead's showrunner last December, but he's gotten back on his feet, having just landed a nice, easy, pressure-free gig. Oh, I'm sorry, what? He's in talks to write a prequel to The Shining, one of the most beloved horror movies of all time? He does like challenges, doesn't he?

  5. Glen Mazzara Says Fans Can Expect A Major Character From The Walking Dead To Appear Before The End Of The Season

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Glen Mazzara must feel like a high school senior with one month left until graduation. We all know he's being replaced as showrunner of The Walking Dead as of next season but seeing as how he's still an AMC employee, he's obligated to promote what's left of Season 3. To wit, Mazzara recently spilled a few details on what we can expect when the show returns on Sunday, including a new character joining the show.

  6. Damon Lindelof Commiserates With The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara Over Network Woes

    Oh Hollywood

    Late last year we learned AMC's The Walking Dead was going to lose its second showrunner, Glen Mazzara. While everyone was dying to know why someone creating a successful show for the network would leave (or told to leave), Mazzara was fairly tight-lipped on the subject. To fans it made no sense and perhaps that's why he was asked about it at a National Association of Television Program Executives panel with Damon Lindelof. Read on for what he had to say about his departure as well as how Lindelof could relate.

  7. AMC’s The Walking Dead Hires Its Third Showrunner, Puts Superglue On All Office Chairs

    Just Go With It

    We were fairly surprised last December when news broke of The Walking Dead's Glen Mazzara leaving the show. Not so much for the decision of course but because this was the second showrunner to exit the popular cable series in as many years. Now a third individual has entered the apocalypse fray and we hope they last the night.

    Things We Saw Today

    Congratulations are in order for Ohio couple Scott Everhart and Jason Welker who tied the knot yesterday at Midtown Comics in New York City. The two had their first date at a comic-related event so it only made sense to get married in front of a wall of comics. All Astonishing X-Men #51 to be exact. (via The Advocate)

    Bloody Good Fun

    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!

  12. The Walking Dead Breaks AMC Ratings Records, Plus More on Michonne

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Sunday night's season finale of The Walking Dead drew a whopping 9 million viewers, a record for AMC. A solid two thirds of that viewership were in the 18-49 age demographic, both numbers proving huge jumps since the second half of the season premiered last month. But also consider this: this happened after a big chunk of the budget was cut and in the first full season without the original showrunner, Frank Darabont. I think it's safe to say that Glen Mazzara has more than fulfilled his duties since taking over. Also inside: More information about the casting of Danai Gurira as Michonne. By the way, I'm going to go ahead and talk about things that happened during the second season, so if you're saving yourself and don't want to read spoilers, read no further.

  15. The Walking Dead Gets a 16-Episode Order For Its Third Season

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Great news for AMC's The Walking Dead coming out of the Television Critics Association press tour: The third season of the show has just gotten a 16-episode order! After a successful second season, the AMC drama has increased its usual season by three episodes, showing faith in the show as well as its new showrunner, Glen Mazzara. That means even more brains, glazed over zombies eyes ... and hopefully, more action than we saw in the first half of the second season.

  16. This Is How Frank Darabont Would Have Started Season 2 of The Walking Dead

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    The idea was to do this with a very focused “you are there” documentary feel. Not going all shaky-cam, but still making it a bit rawer and grainier than the rest of the show. We’d start with a squad of maybe seven or eight soldiers being dropped into the city by chopper. They have map coordinates they need to get to; they’ve been told to report to a certain place to provide reinforcement. It’s not a special mission, it’s basically a housekeeping measure putting more boots on the ground to reinforce key intersections and installations throughout the city. And we follow this group from the moment the copter sets them down. All they have to do is travel maybe a dozen blocks, a simple journey, but what starts as a no-brainer scenario goes from “the city is being secured” to “holy shi*t, we’ve lost control, the world is ending.” Our squad gets blocked at every turn and are soon just trying to survive. I wanted to do a really tense, character-driven ensemble story as communications break down, supply lines are lost, escape routes are cut off, morale falls apart, leadership unravels, mutinies heat up, etc. (Yes, this approach owes a spiritual debt to a number of great films, including Walter Hill’s Southern Comfort.) -- Frank Darabont, confirming his plans for the zombie soldier story told by Being Human's Sam Witwer (who played that zombie soldier), but denying that it was for a web series. No, this is how the second season of AMC's The Walking Dead would have started had Darabont not been fired from the show. Want to know more, like how the show's regular characters played into this? Because there were plans for that, too.

  17. The Walking Dead‘s New Showrunner Assures Us That He Will Handle The Walking Dead Just Fine

    Good News Everyone!

    "There's been all this concern that I'm going to f*ck up this show, and really, we're just trying to get it done." -- Glen Mazzara, the news showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, to TV Guide, talking about how well he's handling the duties of running the critically-acclaimed show. He went on to say that breaking the news of the transition to the cast was "rough": "There's an emotional connection to Frank [Darabont] that they're never going to have to another writer/producer." However, Mazzara says that Darabont gave him his blessing when he left, so despite the pressure of living up to someone like Frank Darabont, there was a lot of faith involved here. No pressure, Glen Mazzara! We're pretty sure you'll do a swell job! (via Blastr)

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    The "'berrrrrr" months are nearly upon us, and that means that the second season of The Walking Dead is as well. This show has been through a lot just this summer, including a changing of the guards after showrunner Frank Darabont was fired. His replacement, Glen Mazzara, has an interview on the AMC web site in which he talks about how the second season will draw greatly from the graphic novel by Robert Kirkman and its storyline concerning the character Herschel. He also discusses how it feels like he's turning Rick into a bad guy and confirms the appearance of the Governor. Seriously, October cannot come soon enough.
