Notes & Trivia Edit

Entertainment Weekly (12-3-10)

Entertainment Weekly (Dec. 3, 2010)

  • First mainstream television series that focuses primarily on zombies.
  • The first episode of the series, "Days Gone Bye" ran 1½ hours. The regular episodes from the series ran 1 hour each.
  • The Walking Dead was the cover feature article on the December 3rd, 2010 edition of Entertainment Weekly.
  • Morgan Jones is the first character on The Walking Dead to refer to infected as "walkers".
  • Shortly before the broadcast of the season one finale, "TS-19", rumors began to circulate that series developer Frank Darabont had fired the entire writing staff. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd provided an interview to Entertainment Weekly, correcting the oversight and confirming that none of the staff writers had been fired. "It's completely inaccurate," she told EW exclusively. "[In] the writers' room, there are people that have set up other projects that will be their first priority if their own series is picked up as a pilot or if it’s a series. I think [Eglee] just decided that he wants to run his own show." [1]
  • Classically trained British actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays the lead role of Rick Grimes in the series, was completely unprepared for the sort of visceral entertainment he would be providing. When describing the scene in episode two, "Guts" where Lincoln and young co-star Steven Yeun were required to smear zombie intestines across their body to mask their scent, Lincoln expressed great discomfort saying, "Please! This is not what I signed up for!" [2]
  • Actor Jon Bernthal, who plays the role of Shane Walsh found that not all of the show's viewers appreciated his character's exploits, in particular, his mother. "She texted me," Bernthal stated, "How dare you be in the woods with another man's wife!" [3]
  • On March 8th, 2011, series creator Robert Kirkman offered an open invitation to controversal sitcom star Charlie Sheen to come join the cast of the show for season 2. Kirkman is quoted as saying, "Charlie call us, we will totally make that happen. We'll do whatever you want." [5]
  • Actor Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, was voted one of three breakout TV stars to watch in 2011 by Entertainment Weekly readers' choice, owing largely to his performance in season two of The Walking Dead. [6]
  • The Walking Dead won the 2011 Saturn Award for the category of Best Television Presentation.
  • Glen Mazzara replaced series co-creator Frank Darabont as showrunner for The Walking Dead with season two. Darabont was still credited as executive producer on the episodes however. [7]
  • Greg Nicotero became an executive producer on the series beginning with season two.
  • Paul Gadd, Scott M. Gimple and Evan Reilly joined the show as producers on season two.
  • Since the premiere of season two, a live aftershow titled Talking Dead has aired and is hosted by Chris Hardwick. The show typically features cast and crew members along with celebrities who are fans of The Walking Dead discussing the latest episode.
