NYCC: The Walking Dead Panel & Gale Anne Hurd Speaks!

October 16, 2011

Producer Gale Anne Hurd is having a big weekend with the second season of the AMC series The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman and Charles Adlard's popular comic book, starting Sunday night, and 24 hours earlier, they brought a bunch of the cast and some footage to the New York Comic-Con.

Coming off a very successful first season which got them a number of accolades and the shake-up of original showrunner Frank Darabont leaving just before the start of the second season, the zombie survival show is tackling 13 episodes, split between the fall and next February.

Hurd is certainly a producer who is familiar with comic conventions, having worked on a lot of high profile genre projects over the course of her career, beginning with the very first Terminator movie, then producing multiple movies based on the Marvel Comics characters The Punisher and The Hulk. She also has two actual comic books at Aspen Comics, "The Scourge" by Scott Lobdell and Eric Battle, and a new one called "Dead Man's Run," written by Greg Pak with Tony Parker as artist.

The Saturday night Comic-Con panel played to a packed audience at the IGN Theater, with Hurd, Kirkman and Emmy-winning make-up FX Artist Greg Nicotero talking about the new season before showing an extended scene from the first episode of Season 2.
