/// AMC Scares Up a Walking Dead Spinoff

September 16, 2013  |  Media Week

AMC is doubling down on the dead, putting into motion a plan that will bring a spinoff of TV’s top-rated series to the network in 2015. According to AMC president and general manager Charlie Collier , AMC is developing a companion series to The Walking Dead , the apocalypse drama that annihilated ratings records in its third season. Usual suspects Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are all on board as executive producers of the project, which will be produced in-house by AMC Studios. “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” Collier said, by way of announcing the development. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.” Per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, Season 3 of The Walking Dead averaged a staggering 11.4 million viewers per episode, of which 7.31 million were members of the all-important dollar demo.
