The Walking Dead Premieres Sunday, October 31st, on AMC TV

The Walking Dead (AMC TV)

Tomorrow, Sunday October 31st -- Halloween -- The Walking Dead premieres on AMC TV at 10 PM (ET/PT).

Based on Robert Kirkman's popular comic book series, The Walking Dead is an epic, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal struggles are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival.

The comic book series first appeared in 2003, with six issues each collected into a series of books. The first is titled The Walking Dead Volume 1: Days Gone Bye with the most recent, The Walking Dead Volume 13: Too Far Gone, is scheduled for publication in late November.

In the series, County Sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes up in an empty hospital after weeks in a coma, and finds himself utterly alone. The world as he knows it is gone, ravaged by a zombie epidemic. 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.

Shot on location in Atlanta, the first episode of six in the AMC series shares its title with the first entry in the comic book series: "Days Gone Bye." In the video embedded below, producer Frank Darabont and author Robert Kirkman discuss the process of converting the comic book into a television series, what they have in common and how they differ. More videos can be seen on the AMC: The Walking Dead website.
