The Walking Dead pilot has been picked up by AMC

This sounds good.

AMC has greenlighted the hit comic, The Walking Dead, as a pilot.
AMC is looking to extend its perfect development record with the pickup of two new drama pilots, "Walking Dead" and "The Killing." They mark the fourth and fifth pilots ordered by the basic cable network, with its first three, "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad and "Rubicon" all going to series.

"Walking Dead" is based on Robert Kirkman's popular comic book. It chronicles the month and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project's writer, director and exec producer, with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing.
This is great. I know they will do it justice.

The days of the dead - reminds me of the 80's.

This will be a hit if they can cast it correctly.
