Did the writers get “fired”?
Making a bigger story of a situation based on speculation (that’s the ‘net for ya!), Deadline had everyone gossiping earlier this week that Frank Darabont had “fired” his writing staff from The Walking Dead. We told you here on Shock that was a bit hard to swallow and tried to clarify in our own news item.
Today, however, Entertainment Weekly turned to producer Gale Anne Hurd who said the reports were, “completely inaccurate. [In] the writers’ room, there are people that have set up other projects that will be their first priority if their own series is picked up as a pilot or if it’s a series. I think [Eglee] just decided that he wants to run his own show.”
