When the world is damaged by a zombie armageddon, law enforcement officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and a little group of others have a hard time to stay alive as 'the dead' stalk them at every turn. Can Rick and the others keep their mankind as they fight to live in this frightening new world? And, amidst alarming conditions and personal competitions, will they eventually survive one another?
Based on Robert Kirkman's hugely successful and popular comic book series, AMC's initial series "The Walking Dead" is an impressive, edge-of-your-seat drama where personal battles are amplified versus a backdrop of moment-to-moment crisis. A survivalist story at its core, the series checks out how the living are changed by the frustrating realization that those who survive can be much more dangerous than the mindless walkers strolling the earth. They themselves have actually ended up being the strolling dead.
