AMC LAUNCHES "TALKING DEAD"

NETWORK'S FIRST LIVE after-SHOW PREMIERES FOLLOWING "THE WALKING DEAD" ENCORE PRESENTATION, OCTOBER 16TH

CHRIS HARDWICK HOSTS HALF-HOUR, ON-AIR SERIES FOLLOWED BY ADDITIONAL CONTENT ON AMCTV.COM

New York, NY - September 22, 2011 - AMC announced today "Talking Dead," the network's first live after-show that serves as a platform for discussion for AMC's series, "The Walking Dead." The half-hour episodes are produced by Michael Davies' Embassy Row and are hosted by Chris Hardwick (Nerdist; G4). "Talking Dead" premieres immediately following the encore presentation of "The Walking Dead" on Sunday, October 16. Then beginning on Friday, November 4th the series follows "The Walking Dead's" encore presentation at 11 pm EST.

"Talking Dead" features Hardwick spending time with fans, actors, producers and tv enthusiasts, recapping that most recent "Dead" episode, and taking questions and comments from viewers. Fans may continue to engage with the after-show following the on-air conclusion, online, at amctv.com for more conversations, questions and trivia.

"As an ENORMOUS fan of both "The Walking Dead" comic and television show, I pretty much begged for this job. I'm fairly certain I slobbered on the phone while doing it. Dissecting the moves of Rick Grimes and the remaining survivors after every episode is something I would be doing with my friends anyway, so the fact that AMC is actually paying to do so is a bonus," said Hardwick. "This half-hour after-show gives fans the opportunity to nerd out about the story in a very public forum: what they like, what they don't like, or what questions they may have. Additionally, it will better inform viewers on making intelligent decisions when faced with the zombie apocalypse, which will probably happen sooner or later."

"Fans of 'The Walking Dead' are incredibly engaged with every aspect of the show. They tweet, blog, and post comments in very large numbers, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to interact with the show in a way that they don't currently have - a kind of live water cooler," said Joel Stillerman, AMC's SVP of original programming, production and digital content. "And, we knew we needed a great host, and are thrilled to have Chris Hardwick on board. He is genuinely knowledgeable about the genre, and truly entertaining."

Michael Davies is the executive producer of "Talking Dead" for Embassy Row. Jen Kelly serves as co-executive producer.
