If it's crap ... We'll tell you
From Deadline reported that the creator and executive producer of the AMC television series "The Walking Dead ', will leave his post as showrunner on the series, just as the production is in its second season. The news is shocking to say the least, especially considering that last weekend Darabont seemed excited with the arrival of the second season in the panel at Comic-Con along with fellow executive producers Robert Kirkman, whose graphic novel is based series and Gale Anne.
For now, speculation suggests that the filmmaker could completely abandon the series, although there is some possibility that stay involved somehow.
The medium also notes that Darabont, who spent five years trying to adapt the story of zombies to the small screen and he wrote and directed the pilot for the AMC would not have been accustomed to the daily production routine that requires a TV series of these characteristics. Last December and personally gave up writing the second season, being assigned these scripts to freelance and finally convinced the idea is not too Darabont and ended up hiring Glen Mazzara (writer of the 1st season) as executive producer and No. 2 project.
What is unclear is whether Mazzara, who has experience as showrunner (say, in charge of the daily work of a series) will take over from Frank Darabont, but one way or another does not seem to go to see affected the timetable for series. The second season will arrive on October 16, in a series, and a huge ratings success has earned recognition with several awards (including a nomination for best drama series at the Golden Globes).
I hope this ain't true, but if it's true then... Frank Darabont is A F*CKING PUSSY! AND I HOPE AFTER HE LEAVES THE SHOW, IT WINS A LOT OF EMMYS!
