Frank Darabont and The Walking Dead marching into New York Comic-Con 2010 for exclusive preview PLUS a new online clip


During the upcoming fan-fest New York Comic-Con, AMC will premiere the first complete scenes from The Walking Dead. In addition to the exclusive preview, the stars and producers of the drama, based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman, will be present for a panel on Sunday, October 10th, at 2:15pm in the IGN Theater. The event will include series stars Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually), Jon Bernthal (The Pacific), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), Laurie Holden (The Mist), and Steven Yeun (The Big Bang Theory). Joining the cast will be writer, director, executive producer and three-time Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and executive producers Robert Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon).

During the 90-minute event, moderator Eric Moro of IGN will lead panelists in a discussion about their experience shooting the The Walking Dead, and the process of bringing Kirkman’s comic book to life on the small screen, among other topics. The panel will be followed by a Q&A session with attending fans.

The Walking Dead, which premieres on Halloween at 10pm EST on AMC, tells the story of the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Lincoln) travels with his family and a small group of survivors, in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis eventually takes its toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Sheriff Grimes struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.
