The Walking Dead - TV series in production.

The Walking Dead is a monthly black and white American comic book series published by Image Comics beginning in 2003. The comic was created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore.
The story chronicles the travels of a group of people trying to survive in a world stricken by a zombie apocalypse. A television series was announced to be in production on August 11, 2009. The series won the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series at the San Diego Comic Convention.

AMC have announced that they have given the green light to the production of a pilot for this new series based on the screenplay adaptation submitted by "Shawshank Redemption" director Frank Darabont. Some other credits to Darabont's name include, The Mist, the Fog and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3. AMC are well known for their original programming such as "Mad Men"
What has really caught my attention on this one is a 51 second clip of "fan" generated art, its a trailer/teaser for the new adaption, while not official this is one of the best animated clips I have seen.
