Stehphen King to pen Walking Dead episode

Stephen King Walking Dead

A very dark and delicious story doing the rounds at the moment readers is that horror legend Stephen King is in negotiations to write an episode of AMC’s zombie TV series The Walking Dead.

While this deal is still in its early stages it seems likely to happen. Executive producer Frank Darabont has already collaborated with King several times, directing The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and one of my personal favourite horror movies The Mist. Such a soul-wrenching ending, gives me ghastly goosebumps just thinking about it.

The first episode of The Walking Dead aired on ‘normal’ TV in the UK on Sunday with 1.4 million zombie-crazed viewers, an 8.2% share on the box. Not bad considering it was already aired on FX last year and was fighting for viewers with the final of The Masters on BBC2. Why would any creature would want to watch golf instead of zombies? All that green grass and sunshine. Give me weeds and dark foreboding skies any day of the week.
