Variety is reporting that AMC has given director Frank Darabont the go-ahead to develop and film the pilot for a TV series based on Robert Kirkman's comic book, The Walking Dead.

"Walking Dead" is based on the comicbook series about survivors of a zombie apocalypse by Robert Kirkman. Frank Darabont penned the adaptation and is onboard to direct. Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion will exec produce with Darabont and Kirkman.

"Walking Dead" revolves around a group of survivors, led by a police officer, who travel the country in search of a safe home.

Working with people like Frank Darabont and Gale Anne Hurd is the right way in for us to deliver a project of distinction in this genre," AMC prexy Charlie Collier said.
Kirkman is a nice guy, but he isn't smart enough to listen to experts after asking them for advice on his world.
