One of the biggest time bomb revelations over the last couple of days, was the news that THE WALKING DEAD executive producer Frank Darabont (and the person instrumental to bringing it to the small screen on AMC) had abruptly left the series in the middle of Season 2. This, of course, was after he appeared at Comic-Con over the weekend promoting the show as if nothing was amiss. At today’s TCA Summer session with AMC, naturally questions turned to his exit and the details behind it. Joel Stillerman, AMC’s Senior Vice President of Original Programming, Production, and Digital Content didn’t […]Read On »

Sitting down in a hotel restaurant in Pasadena at the winter Television Critics Association press tour, Campbell talks about his new gig – and about his occasional need to leave Hollywood behind and literally go out to sea.

In the action-packed season finale of THE WALKING DEAD, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group have found a temporary haven at the CDC, where Dr. Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) is the lone survivor of the team that was attempting to find an answer to the horrific plague or…whatever it is…that turned the world into a zombie nightmare. Hot water and chilled wine offer a temporary respite from terror, but really folks, this is the last episode – how happy an ending do you think this is going to be?
In the penultimate episode of THE WALKING DEAD, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) leads the survivors on a desperate odyssey back into the lions’ – well, zombies’ – den, as they head for the Center for Disease Control and possible salvation for the now-infected Jim (Andrew Rothenberg). It seems impossible that anyone could have made it through the collapse of the city, and yet deep beneath the streets one lone scientist (Noah Emmerich) on the brink of insanity may be all that stands between our heroes and a more horrific end to their journey.
