AMC—the home to TV's zombie-rific show The Walking Dead—has announced their plans to launch a live half-hour Walking Dead talk show entitled Talking Dead (GET IT?!?) to debut on October 16th immediately following the encore presentation of the fall premiere.
The show will be hosted by the fairly amusing Chris Hardwick (Web Soup) who will... who will... oh, let's just let the AMC flacks describe it.
“Fans of The Walking Dead are incredibly engaged with every aspect of the show. They tweet, blog, and post comments in very large numbers, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to interact with the show in a way that they don’t currently have — a kind of live water cooler,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s SVP original programming, production and digital content.
Ummm... ohhh-kaaaay. I have nothing more to say about this, so here's a video of a kid pointing a leaf blower at his face, which actually sums up my feelings pretty well.
