The Walking Dead is an American television drama series developed by Frank Darabont and is based on the comic book series of the same name. The series stars Andrew Lincoln as sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes who awakens from a coma to end the world dominated by flesh-eating ‘walkers’ resembling the zombies of George A. Romeroís horror movies. The story unfolds as he sets out to find his family and encounters many other survivors along the way.
