Hi Herc, Just to clarify the announcement: It's not a 6-episode miniseries. It's intended as a regular ongoing series. AMC is going into it as they did with "Breaking Bad" (which, on a personal note, gets my passionate vote as being the best series on television right now, hands-down): those familiar with "Breaking Bad" may have noticed it was actually a "half season" approach consisting of 7 episodes. When that first season proved successful, AMC then transitioned to the standard 13 episodes per year as of season two. Same idea here. If WD finds its audience, following seasons will continue with the standard 13 episodes. It's a very smart approach on AMC's part, in addition to being a tremendous show of their faith: as with "Breaking Bad," instead of giving us just a single pilot episode to prove ourselves, AMC has gone out on a limb and greenlit half a season to kick things off and give our show a chance to bring the audience in. Gale Anne Hurd and I are very grateful to them for that. Hope that helps dispell any confusion. Best, FrankIt does, and we thank! Those first six hours are slated for October. So watch and AMC and Frank Darabont will give you a bigger season next year!
