SEASON FOUR OF AMC'S "THE WALKING DEAD" BEGINS PRODUCTION MAY 6 IN ATLANTA

AMC CONFIRMS SCOTT M. GIMPLE AS SHOWRUNNER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER FOR SEASON FOUR

GREG NICOTERO AND TOM LUSE ELEVATED TO EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS WITH ROBERT KIRKMAN, GALE ANNE HURD & DAVID ALPERT

New York - February 27, 2013 - AMC announced today that the cast and crew of "The Walking Dead" return to Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, May 6th to begin production on season four. AMC also confirms Scott M. Gimple as showrunner and executive producer for the series' fourth season to premiere in October with 16 episodes. Gimple has been on the show's writing staff since season two. Co-Executive Producer, Emmy(R) Award-winning Special Effects Makeup Supervisor and Director Greg Nicotero and Producer Tom Luse have also been elevated to executive producers. "The Walking Dead" is based on the comic book series created and written by Robert Kirkman and published by Skybound, Kirkman's imprint at Image Comics. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert continue to serve as executive producers for season four.

"Scott has been an essential part of this show since he came aboard at the very beginning of season two. He's contributed to guiding this show in a substantial way that has resulted in a lot of the key scenes and storylines fans have dubbed signature moments of 'The Walking Dead,'" said Kirkman. "I am thrilled to begin work on a brand new season of 'The Walking Dead' with Scott at the helm, and I truly believe we could be embarking on what will be the best season of this show yet."

"Scott's voice has been an integral one since he joined the show. Greg Nicotero is a true artist whose work is simply brilliant. And, Tom Luse has really created the machine that allows this very large show to get made week to week. We congratulate all three in their new roles on the series and look forward to ramping up production on season four," said Joel Stillerman, AMC's EVP of original programming, production and digital content.

"I'm thrilled to continue the tradition of the spectacular, cinematic, horrifying, exciting and emotional storytelling of 'The Walking Dead,'" said Gimple. "I'm a huge fan of the comics, and started with the show on the other side of the set, as an avid viewer. Over the past two years, it's been an incredible privilege making such great television with the best cast and crew I've ever worked with - I can't wait to make some more."

Gimple has written some of the most celebrated and talked-about episodes from seasons two and three including episode 306 (Hounded) and last season's climatic mid-season finale episode 207 (Pretty Much Dead Already), which revealed Sophia in the barn. Gimple previously worked on NBC's acclaimed series "Life" and ABC's cult favorite "Flashforward." "Flashfoward" began as a collaboration with David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel) with whom he co-wrote both the Sony feature film Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and episodes two and three in the upcoming inaugural season of Starz' "DaVinci's Demons." Gimple also worked for Matt Groening's Bongo Comics, where he wrote and edited "Simpsons Comics." He has also written stories for the comic books "What If?" and "Spider-Man Unlimited."

Nicotero (Kill Bill, Transformers, Inglorious Basterds) and his team received the Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup two years in a row (2011/2012) for their work on "The Walking Dead." In addition to leading the visual and special effects and makeup for the series, Nicotero has directed several episodes. Luse (Remember the Titans, "One Tree Hill," Jeepers Creepers, "The Joneses," "Everwood") has been with the show since the beginning of production and was instrumental in setting up the production of AMC's first owned scripted series. Based in Atlanta, he manages and oversees the day-to-day production of the series.
