WOW! Darabont fires entire Walking Dead writing staff…

Oh boy. Please please don’t ruin this show!!!

Blastr has it:

…According to Deadline, Darabont canned all the writers for the show, including executive producer and second-in-command Charles “Chic” Eglee. It’s not unusual for TV show writing staffs to go through changes between seasons, and sometimes the staff is even “laid off” temporarily during a hiatus. But Darabont’s move is more surprising, as is the news that he might not even retain a staff for the show’s second season.

Instead, Darabont may use freelance writers to pen the scripts for season two rather than keeping a full team of scribes on the payroll. When you look at the credits for the show’s first season, it kind of makes sense: Darabont himself wrote two of the six episodes and was heavily involved in rewriting or co-writing the other four. Of those, two were written by outside writers, one was penned by Glen Mazzara, and the fourth was written by Robert Kirkman, creator of the comic book on which the show is based. So it doesn’t appear that the full-time staff was a necessity….

OH NOES, We don’t get S2 until next Halloween :0(, well that makes sense I guess but wahh anyway~

…AMC doesn’t plan to launch season two until around Halloween of next year…

Medium ‘Night of the Living Dead – Bite Me’ Episode airs Friday, 900pm

SciFiWire has it, sounds awesome. We love the show, our previous posts on Medium here.

…Medium is planning one of the more amusing Halloween episodes we’ve come across, a TV mash-up with Night of the Living Dead. The episode is (also amusingly) called “Bite Me” and runs Friday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m.

“We literally insert Allison into the 1968 George Romero movie Night of the Living Dead,” said Medium creator and executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. Of course, there’s also a mystery to be solved in her waking world, involving a missing funeral director.

'Bite Me' airs Fri., Oct. 30th at 900pm on CBS

Caron said the idea of putting a character from one of his series into an old movie has been kicking around for 20 years. “Actually I was going to do it on Moonlighting years ago. We were going to do it with an AIP movie. I think it was Godzilla vs. Mothra.” (Now, that’s an episode we would have watched!)…

…”Craig and I thought it sounded like a fun idea, but we had to find the right film,” said Doherty. “We did a search for public-domain films and realized that Night of the Living Dead was public domain. It was really amazing and perfect. Craig and I are huge zombie movie fans. … We also thought it was perfect for a Halloween episode.”

To provide some sense of jeopardy for the dream, the writers decided to do something they haven’t done before on Medium, where Allison begins to suffer real physical damage from her adventures into the world of black and white. “You have to be as worried about Allison as you would be if this were her waking life. So a zombie bite in the dream will follow her out into her waking life.”….

Update: Interview with the ‘real’ Allison DuBois after the break:
