AMC has picked up six episodes of “The Walking Dead,” which is based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman (and published by Image Comics). Show bows in October during “AMC Fearfest.”

“Andrew Lincoln, wow–what an amazing find this guy is. Writing Rick Grimes month after month in the comic series, I had no idea he was an actual living breathing human being and yet here he is. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this show is coming together,” said Kirkman.

Kirkman executive produces, while Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”) is writer, director and executive producer. Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Charles “Chic” Eglee are also EPs.
