After much anticipation AMC has released a trailer for the new series "The Walking Dead." The series is based on Robert Kirkman's fantastic graphic novel of the same name about a sheriff searching for his family in a post-apocalypse world overrun by zombies--really, really scary zombies. Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption") directed the pilot and is staying very hands-on for the initial six episode run.

The trailer wowed fans at Comic-Con earlier this summer, and now I see why. Count me as one of the many looking forward to "The Walking Dead" premier on Halloween night at 10 p.m.
