About ‘The Walking Dead’
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead has reigned as television’s most watched drama for adults aged 18 – 49 for the last four years. The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The survivors find themselves constantly on the move, and friendships and even love affairss blossom within the group. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and Rick discovers that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them.
The series has been heralded by critics as “an honest-to-God phenomenon” (Variety).
