AMC will air a special Marathon of The Walking Dead, featuring all six episodes from the Golden Globe-nominated first season. Each episode will feature exclusive content, including interviews with Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens) and Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, along with special effects designer Greg Nicotero.
In addition, the Marathon will feature an exclusive first look at AMC’s new original drama, The Killing, which debuts on Sunday, April 3rd at 9 pm with a two-hour premiere. From writer, executive producer and showrunner Veena Sud (Cold Case), the series tells the story of the murder of a teenage girl and the subsequent police investigation.
The Walking Dead marathon airs this Friday, March 4th, starting at 8pm on AMC. The exclusive first look at The Killing will air at 9:30 pm, during the first episode of The Walking Dead, and then again at 12:45 am during the Marathon’s fourth episode.
The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually) as Rick Grimes, Jon Bernthal (The Pacific) as Shane Walsh, Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) as Lori Grimes, Laurie Holden (Stephen King’s The Mist) as Andrea, Jeffrey DeMunn (The Green Mile) as Dale, Steven Yeun (The Big Bang Theory) as Glen, Emma Bell (The Bedford Diaries) as Amy, and Chandler Riggs (Get Low) as Carl Grimes.
Based on Kirkman’s hugely popular comic book series, The Walking Dead tells the story of the weeks and months following a zombie apocalypse. A survivalist story at its core, the series explores how the living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous that the mindless walkers roaming the earth. They themselves have become “the walking dead.”
