8 Mind-Blowing Easter Eggs You Missed On 'The Walking Dead'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
You know why Morgan was so concerned that someone took his peanut butter protein bar? Because "Walking Dead" is all about the details. (And peanut butter bars are delicious.) There are a few months before the show comes back from midseason break in February, so for all of you looking to catch up or binge on old episodes in the meantime, here are some Easter eggs you might've missed that make the show even better. 1. The titles have been decaying each season. Image: SkyBound Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd confirmed to The Huffington Post at "The Walking Dead" fan premiere that the titles decompose more each season. Hurd tells us, "For the observant fan, it’s an Easter egg. We are reflecting the world. The world is more decayed, the walkers are considerably more decayed, so it really is reflective of that." 2. Eastman wore a "Save Terrapins" shirt after Enid ate a turtle. Though showrunner Scott Gimple seemed to deny the Easter egg in a message to "Ta ...

<i> The Walking Dead</i>: The Heart Wins, the Head Loses
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Glenn is still a Houdini. Surviving by his escape artistry previously mentioned in my Huffpost October 30, 2015 blog titled, "The Walking Dead: Michonne, a Leader Exemplar," about season 6 episode 3. The heart won. Although shortly after the season 6 episode 3, titled, "Thank You," had ushered an avalanche of mixed reactions from both fans and critics, the recent airing of the resolution episode 7 titled, "Heads Up," also brought on equally the same. Even so, one fan of The Walking Dead while appearing as a guest with fellow guest Gale Anne Hurd exec. Producer both on Talking Dead, Ken Jeong, actor, comedian and former doctor, was nonetheless very satisfied with the storyline. When asked by host Chris Hardwick what he thought about Glenn's storyline, the actor said he was very pleased. Then Ken Jeong followed by saying that with other shows so often they will let things suspend at the very last minute of an episode, and then go into a hiatus, presumably till next season.

Gale Anne Hurd On The Legacy of Wilma Mankiller (Exclusive Video)
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
I've asked Gale Anne Hurd to share her thoughts on why the story of the first female Principal Chief of The Cherokee Nation is one for the history books. You might think the first woman to become principal chief of the Cherokee Nation is unrelated to my Sci-fi productions, but the late Wilma Mankiller was a real-life Ellen Ripley or Sarah Connor, and like the women of "The Walking Dead" she was a survivor-warrior who stepped up to lead her people. As I sat down to write about Wilma Mankiller and the importance of her legacy,  I thought: Where do I start?  On the leadership front?  How she brought a nation together when many of the men who preceded her had failed?  Or the equally important aspect of her heritage, and how American history has essentially scrubbed the original "Americans"  from our history books?  "Most people like to deal with us as though we were in a museum or a history book," Chief Wilma Mankiller once said of Native American tribes. For Wilma, there is added ins ...

<i>The Walking Dead</i>: Season 5 Continues the Show's Enduring Resonance
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
The airing of season 5, episode 12 of The Walking Dead, titled "Remember," although light in action, still captures. Proving the enduring strength of this show. Thus far, it's also continuing its staying power. It was an episode that eased up on the accelerator a bit. An episode where everyone needed a profound time of respite. And it's no wonder the previous episode was titled, "The Distance." For in that episode after the new character Aaron, played by Ross Marquand, made his proposal to Rick's group to join his Alexandria community near Washington, D.C., it was Michonne who assertively spoke before the group to say, "We need this." You also have to give credit to Michonne as she continually supports, while also continually offers differing constructive views to Rick. And it was Rick's son Carl after all who had warmed to her first, beginning as far back while all were at the prison enclave in the third season. The way things have been going between the battle-hardened leader Ri ...

<i>The Walking Dead</i>'s EP Gale Anne Hurd Talks Season 4 Part 2
Huffington Post - about 3 years
For the latest issue of Starburst Magazine we get deep with The Walking Dead's executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. [CAUTION: Spoilers ahead.] VB: Congrats on the show getting renewed for a 5th season! GAH: Thank you! We're all so happy to be coming back. It's one big Walking Dead family and when we're not together we miss each other. Alright -- we're diving in! Let's start with some of your reactions to the first half of Season 4 -- what was a favorite moment? What I love was that we keep changing things up. One of the bold moves, I think, was to see the transition of Phillip, the Governor, essentially into Brian. At least initially someone who seemed like he was on the road to redemption, and that to me was a fascinating journey. In the end it didn't quite work out, but there was hope -- and I think that's the remarkable thing. Do you see Rick stepping it up more as a father and leader now that Hershel's gone? We'll have to see, because we ended the middle of the season with ...

'The Walking Dead' Renewed For Season 5
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The Walking Dead" has been renewed for Season 5 on AMC. According to AMC, "The Walking Dead" is the No. 1 show among adults 18-49. "We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: 'The Walking Dead' is renewed for a fifth season," Charlie Collier, AMC president, said in a statement. "This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently -- and most notably -- with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more 'Dead.'" Scott Gimple will return as showrunner for Season 5. Executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse are also on board for Season 5. AMC is also working on ...

AMC Seriously Thinking About A Walking Dead Spinoff For 2015
Boom Tron - over 3 years
I often find myself in the strangest of positions as someone who comments on the goings-on in the television industry. The latest news coming from AMC is the serious interest in developing a spinoff to its immensely popular drama series, The Walking Dead. From a business stand point it makes perfect sense; The Walking Dead brings in a lot of money so why not capitalize on that revenue stream by doubling down on the product? But from an enthusiast perspective, do we really need another zombie show? I love zombies and I love The Walking Dead ­– for the most part – but this seems excessive to me. Let’s get all the facts straight first: The Walking Dead brings in huge numbers in the key demographic of adults 18-49. It’s broken more viewership records for a cable series than I can count. A spinoff seems like the smart choice. According to Deadline, the spinoff will be executive produced by comic book creator and TWD EP Robert Kirkman and EP Gale Anne Hurd, as well as David Alpert for AM ...

Michonne's New Mission
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When "The Walking Dead" returns, Michonne will be on a mission. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, comic co-creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman said Andrea's (Laurie Holden) death will still be felt by the characters in Season 4, Michonne (Danai Gurira) in particular. "As we meet Michonne coming back this season, she's on a mission to hunt down the Governor. It's something she's very obsessed with. It's big part of her character this season," Kirkman said. "She did lose Andrea and she lost her because of the Governor. She's not willing to let that guy go or be out there. It's something that may possibly be to her detriment, the fact that she's so dedicated to finding this person. That's something that very much informs her character this season." Season 3 of "The Walking Dead" ended with Andrea's death, the Governor (David Morrissey) attacking the prison and escaping from Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and co. After the attack, Rick took in th ...

Can 'The Walking Dead' Be Saved?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The Walking Dead" is getting its third showrunner in four seasons with Scott Gimple taking the reins for Season 4. Series creator Frank Darabont served as showrunner for the first season and stepped down during production of Season 2. He handed things over to Glen Mazzara, who announced he was leaving after the third season. "The Walking Dead" Season 2 was criticized for being too slow-paced in its beginning episodes, and as things picked up, so did the ratings. Gimple told The Hollywood Reporter he is going to do his best to combine the what worked from Seasons 1, 2 and 3 in working on Season 4. "I'm trying to take a greatest-hits approach and take the best of both those runs and run with it," he said. "As far as my own personal stamp, it's more of what we do here already with character-driven stories and really delving into these characters while having some amazing, horrible scares and exciting sequences but all in service to a greater story that builds."

New 'Walking Dead' Poster Features Zombies, Horses & Hammers
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The Walking Dead" Season 4 Comic-Con poster is here and it reveals ... nothing. But it looks really cool, and Michonne is on a horse, so that could be something. Along with Michonne (Danai Gurira), the banner poster features Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Tyreese (Chad Coleman) battling the undead. Check it out below. Season 3 of "The Walking Dead" focused more on the danger of surviving humans. Season 4, according to executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, will place more emphasis on zombies. "We are going to amp up the threat of the walkers, because they've started to seem like a manageable threat. They are not a manageable threat," she said during "The Walking Dead" PaleyFest event. "But, it is the people who you think you can trust who betray you, that you have to fear. It is the monster inside you. We all have them. How do we keep them in check?" "The Walking Dead" returns to AMC in October 2013.

'Walking Dead' Producers Relive AMC Zombie Show's Origin Story
MTV News - over 3 years
It's hard to imagine a world without "The Walking Dead," but that world was very much a reality when producers Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert first tried shopping the post-apocalypse zombie series to networks. "We sold it to NBC in 2005, who liked the book but wanted to do something totally different," said Alpert at the Produced By Conference in Los Angeles on Saturday. "I learned the first time that anytime a broadcast network says, 'We're going to do something totally different,' it's not going to work." After NBC passed on "Walking Dead," the project was brought to other networks, including AMC. After the rocky experience with NBC, the "Walking Dead" producers found new creative freedom at AMC, a notion they pushed with the very first scene of the pilot episode. "We didn't trust in the very beginning — given our NBC experience — that we had good creative partners," said Alpert. "There's a reason why we shot a little girl in the head in the beginning of the pilot: we gave ...

'The Walking Dead' Beefs Up Cast For Season 4
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" will have a few more (living) bodies on the ground when the AMC show returns in October. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chad Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth) have been promoted to series regular status beginning next year, alongside David Morrissey as the nefarious Governor. The world of "The Walking Dead" needs a little repopulation after the bloody third season, which saw us lose Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Michael Rooker (Merle), Dallas Roberts (Milton) and -- most shockingly -- Laurie Holden (Andrea) in the finale. Additionally, Melissa Ponzio (Karen) will reappear in Season 4 as a recurring guest star, the sole survivor of the Governor's brutal attack on his own army in Woodbury. Coleman and Martin-Green play siblings who were an integral part of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) fight against the Governor. Kinney has recurred since Season 2 as the youngest daughter of Hershe ...
